“We’re thrilled to have the ‘galactically known Printerverse’ back with us this year at Print 17 in Chicago, making it six years in a row! The Printerverse is a very popular and dynamic area on the exhibit floor which offers attendees unique industry perspectives on a range of topics, and is free for those who come to Print 17,” said Thayer Long, President of show organizer NPES.

The Printerverse is also a hugely popular show-floor networking hub. Come for the conversations, meet-ups, tweet-ups, and stay for special events like Girls Who Print Day,” Corn added. “On Tuesday September 12, 2017, we celebrate the 6th annual Girls Who Print Day hosted by Girl #1 Mary Beth Smith and me. The festivities blast off with Trish Witkowski of FoldFactory.com at noon (CT), followed by lunch and the presentation of the 4th Annual Girlie Award at 12:30 p.m. The very popular and always printspirational Girls Who Print Leadership Panel follows at 12:45. Girls Who Print Day and all of our programming and events are open to all attendees.” For the latest updates on The Printerverse sessions and special events, plus information on how to watch Livestream broadcasts directly from the show floor, please visit: http://print17.printmediacentr.com.
