"Attendee Assistant," the Web-based show planning tool that was
among the most popular innovations of GRAPH EXPO and CONVERTING EXPO 2000,
is back for 2001 in an enhanced version supporting all three exhibitions
presented this year by the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC).
"In its inaugural implementation, Attendee Assistant was so heavily
used and so widely praised that expanding the program for our 2001 shows was
the natural next step," said GASC President Regis J. Delmontagne.
Attendee Assistant "went live" online in late 2000, and is available in
support of GRAPHIC ARTS THE CHARLOTTE SHOW (March 15-17, Charlotte, NC),
the 2001 GUTENBERG FESTIVALSM (May 17-19, Long Beach, CA) and the premier
global event of the year, PRINT 01 (September 6-13, Chicago, IL).
It can be accessed through the GASC web site at www.gasc.org.
In its 2000 edition, Attendee Assistant provided a convenient way
for show visitors to obtain information about exhibitors and products, get
answers to specific questions, plan their show visits, create an on-site
itinerary, and arrange to receive information from their selected exhibitors
automatically after the event.
The web site also supported online show registration, seminar
enrollment and hotel reservations.
GASC will expand the program in 2001 with such additional features as an
optional e-mail "reminder" program, allowing industry professionals to sign
up to receive the latest news and exhibitor information via e-mail. The "My
Exhibitors" feature, enabling attendees to get personalized news and product
information from the exhibitors of greatest interest to them, will also be
enhanced for 2001.
