“Empowering the success of businesses in the printing and visual communications industry is our promise,” said Thayer Long, NPES President. “To help achieve this, we want to provide a consistent foundation that exhibitors and attendees can rely on when planning for Graph Expo each year. In listening to feedback from industry members, we made the decision to host the show in Chicago, a central and familiar location, through to 2020. This show is the biggest opportunity of the year for exhibitors and attendees to build relationships, grow their business and receive education,” Long added. “Print 17 is shaping up to be one of our most successful shows to date and we’re looking forward to building on that success in the years to come.” For additional information about Graph Expo, please visit:
