Looking beyond wide-format? Other specialized show areas at Print13 include: the Photo Imaging Pavilion, showcasing services for photo, photo book, and photo creation; Future Print, including RFID, printed electronics, 3D printing, and other emerging technologies; GreenSpace, devoted to eco-friendly products, services, and education; Expanded Revenue-Streams Pavilion, specialty-printed products and advertising specialties; the In-Plant Place, for corporate, government, and educational in-plant professionals; the Marketing Pavilion, aimed at marketing education and resources; and others.

And if package printing is your thing, or you’re intrigued with the idea of perhaps bringing package applications in-house, you’re in luck: the Converting & Package Printing Expo (CPP Expo) has co-located with Print13. The premier event for the converting/package printing marketplace, the expo addresses flexible packaging, folding carton/boxmaking, corrugated converting, tissue converting, narrow web/tag and label, and more. The registration fee for Print13 enables attendees to also attend the packaging event.

The bottom line? “You will see convergence here, demonstrated by Print 13’s many show-floor attractions, which is another important value for busy professionals who must justify the expense and time away,” says Nappi. “Here, they will see everything in one place at one time.”

Fine-tuning your brain
Print13’s educational offerings actually kick off a day before the show-floor opening, with the Executive Outlook program, a special technology-trends conference. Held on Saturday, Executive Outlook provides economic and marketing information, technological reports, and print trends and forecasts.

In addition, the Executive Outlook conference is the presentation home of Print13’s Must See ‘Ems Awards. The product- and technology-recognition program is designed to provide an industry-wide roadmap to the most compelling introductions on the Print13 show floor, as selected by a panel of industry experts. Even if you can’t make the program itself, note that award-winners are identified on the show floor over the course of the event with descriptive “Must See ‘Ems” placards.
