Miami Beach, FL -- Graphics of the Americas (GOA), the largest annual combined exposition and education event in the U.S. and produced by the Printing Association of Florida, proudly announces its debut to the prestigious Tradeshow Week 200 list.

The Tradeshow Week 200 is an annual directory that features a listing and analysis of the 200 largest tradeshows in the U.S., and the 50 largest tradeshows in Canada. This list features 2008 shows that are ranked by net square feet of paid exhibit space.

GOA appeared on the list at number ninety-eight, with 250,000 net sq. ft., 367 exhibiting companies and 10,600 professional attendees.More than 1,200 attendees participated in the diverse educational sessions.

Vice President and Tradeshow General Manager Sarah Patt-Pronek says, "We are thrilled to be recognized in the prestigious Tradeshow Week 200 list. GOA is the place for exhibitors to showcase their latest product offerings to a global audience, and the expo continues to grow every year." 

Patt-Pronek continues, "If you are not exhibiting at GOA, you are missing a tremendous amount of sales opportunities, as past exhibitors continue to give us feedback about the jump start this show is for them each year from a selling standpoint."

The GOA organization says that its appointment to the TSW 200 list affirms the success of the show's global diversity and education model. The dozens of high profile vendors and veteran industry speakers who exhibit and present are further evidence of the show's advantage in the marketplace.
