ARLINGTON, Va. (July 25, 2006) — Print Buyers Online.com, a free, educational e-community for print buyers, print communications professionals and their suppliers in partnership with Print Communications Professionals International (PCPI), the premier association dedicated to print buyers, will host their annual Print Oasis Print Buyers Conference & Exhibit on February 11-13, 2007 at the Paris Las Vegas Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. Details will be posted on the Print Buyers Online.com website within the next few weeks.
The Print Oasis 2007 Print Buyers Conference & Exhibit is the only independent conference focused on the needs and challenges of print buyers, specifiers and production professionals. Interested exhibitors are encouraged to sign up now to receive the best booth location. Previous exhibitors have included printers, proofing companies, major technology firms and paper manufacturers.
Print Oasis 2007 exhibit times will be on Sunday evening and all day Monday, concluding with the Paper Show on Monday night, a successful venue for exhibitors in 2006. Back by popular demand, compelling mini-educational sessions will be conducted in the Exhibit Hall providing attendees with a fun way to quickly learn the tricks of the trade while promoting traffic on the exhibitor floor.
“The Paris Las Vegas provides an even more accessible and intimate setting with even grander ballrooms for the seminars and exhibits,” said Kimberlee Sautter, Conference Manager. The Paris Las Vegas property offers the sophistication of one of Europe's most romantic cities while located in the heart of the famous Las Vegas Strip. Dining options include Five-star French-infused cuisine to an outstanding variety of eateries for guests on the go. Visitors also enjoy two shopping promenades, the Paris Spa by Mandara, a two-acre rooftop pool and spa, recessed within a French garden, and live entertainment including Mel Brooks' musical comedy, The Producers. A featured attraction called the Eiffel Tower Experience is an exact reproduction of one of Europe's most famous landmarks, rendered meticulously at 1/2 scale. The Eiffel Tower Experience allows visitors to ride to the top, where they have a stunning, panoramic view of Las Vegas. Conference attendees and exhibitors will enjoy this exciting resort destination.
The standard booth sizes have increased to 10' x 10', but the fees and benefits are the same: $3,000 for early-bird registration (ending October 31, 2006) or $3,500 thereafter. Exhibit fees include the mailing list of all conference, paper show and expo attendees, and six months of online promotion on the Print Buyers Online.com e-community. Exhibitor hours will again be concentrated so that the exhibitor representatives may also attend the educational seminars.
Table-top exhibits for the popular Monday night Paper show, available to manufacturers and distributors of paper products only, will be $750 for early-bird registration (ending October 31, 2006) or $850 thereafter.

Print Oasis 2006 return exhibitor, Caleb Tower, President of P3 Software, Inc. shared his experience at last year's conference, “Print Oasis just keeps getting better. This was our 5th year exhibiting and things really clicked. The quality of attendees was, as usual, terrific and the quantity was busy enough to have me meeting new people continuously the entire conference. The formula for the exhibits this year was great, plenty of traffic and positive happy attendees. The buyer panels were terrific!”
