"Graphics of the Americas provides the perfect environment for all these events," says Chris Price, VP and General Manager for GOA, "As the first show of the year, our buyers have new budgets and our exhibitors take advantage of the buying atmosphere to introduce new equipment, product lines and services. This in turn attracts more buyers. It is one reason that GOA has consistently strong attendance, even when the economy in general is sluggish. The timing of the show creates a win/win situation for attendees and exhibitors alike."
