2015 Program Offers Buyer-Attendees “Roadmap” to Hottest New Technologies and Products Demonstrated Across Exciting Show Floor

      Reston, VA – Which exhibits, technologies and products will be ‘musts’ for visitors to see September 13 – 16, when GRAPH EXPO 15 and co-located CPP EXPO show take place in Chicago?  And how can exhibitors make themselves stand out from among the hundreds of company displays filling the South Hall of Chicago’s McCormick Place?

The MUST SEE ‘EMS program presented by the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC) has provided the answer to these questions for the past 16 years.  With the MUST SEE ‘EMS awards categorized to closely align with the interests of potential equipment buyers, the program recruits a panel of industry experts to review the hundreds of submissions to identify the products and exhibits that show goers simply “must see.”

Spanning the realm of print, online and mobile, GRAPH EXPO 15 is recognized as the year’s most innovative and comprehensive exhibition of inkjet, digital, offset, flexo, gravure and hybrid technologies, products, and services for the commercial, transactional, converting and package printing, publishing, mailing, in-plant, photo imaging, marketing and industrial printing industries.

For exhibitors, the 2015 MUST SEE ‘EMS program provides an industry-recognized means for highlighting their most important innovations.  Submissions by GRAPH EXPO 15 and co-located CPP EXPO exhibitors are now invited for consideration by this year’s expert panel, with all entries due by the Monday, June 22, 2015 deadline.  Complete online submission procedures and details are available at:

“MUST SEE ‘EMS offer exhibitors a highly effective tool for calling attention to their most exciting new products onsite at the show,” says GASC President Ralph Nappi about the 2015 program.  “This year’s show will absolutely have its share of truly compelling new product, software and equipment introductions,” Nappi adds, “and the MUST SEE ‘EMS provide a roadmap to see them all.”

This results of this year’s MUST SEE ‘EMS technology and product recognition program, conducted independently for the Graphic Arts Show Company and administered by Hal Hinderliter, principal of Hal Hinderliter Consulting Services, will be presented at the EXECUTIVE OUTLOOK Conference, on Sunday, September 13, 2015, the day the exhibition opens.  While all MUST SEE ‘EMS winners will be announced in advance of the show, those to be revealed at EXECUTIVE OUTLOOK will include the “Best of Category” Awards-one from within each of eleven MUST SEE ‘EMS categories, and the fourth annual “Legacy Award”-designed to salute one past MUST SEE ‘EMS awardee whose technology or product has made a lasting impact on the printing industry. All MUST SEE ‘EMS winners will be published in the Show Daily newspaper, posted online, and also circulated in a variety of other forms.

For show visitors, the selection of MUST SEE ‘EMS products is a crucial aid in prioritizing booth visits and assuring that they will see everything making news at the show.  Complete information about the MUST SEE ‘EMS program is available online at:
