“What these meetings, conferences, and networking events offer is a tremendously multifaceted show-going experience for attendees in every key segment of our industry,” says Nappi. “For those in the wide-format space this means more peer-networking and information-sharing opportunities than ever before – from the Dscoop event to the Agfa Apogee User Group meeting, to the EDSF Gala, EFI’s PrintStream User’s Group, and Imaging Network Group’s Workshop, and others. So whether visitors come to make or evaluate future purchases, gain new productivity and profit-boosting solutions, or to renew or make new business connections, Chicago is the place to be to actively participate in our industry community this fall.”
