Exhibits, educational sessions, and an Innovation Gallery will be highlights.
Print 05 & Converting 05 will feature a special Wide Format Pavilion that is approximately 15 times larger than it was in its first edition 3 years ago. The pavilion will exceed 20,000 net sq ft, says show coordinators, and will include not only exhibitor displays but also free educational presentations and the Innovation Gallery display.
"Our goal in promoting the Wide Format Pavilion has been both to help our attendees seize one of the most promising growth opportunities in the marketplace, and to help them anticipate and respond to new competition," says Regis J. Delmontagne, president of the Graphic Arts Show Company, which hosts Print 05.
The Innovation Gallery is a display of creative products generate by wide-format tools, displaying an array of business opportunities for attendees as well as highlighting cutting-edge applications using inkjet. In past years, the gallery has included fine-art printmaking and photography, special package design and prototyping solutions, garments and textiles, floor and wall coverings, and more.
Print 05 & Converting 05 will take place September 9-15, 2005 in the McCormick Place Complex in Chicago. Nearly 80,000 attendees are expected to view the 800 total exhibits. (Print 05: www.print05.com)
