As the year’s largest printing, publishing and converting industry trade show, Print 01 is expected to attract visitors from more than 100 countries. Some 30 travel organizers in 20 nations are organizing group tours to the show, and information is being disseminated through U.S. Commercial Service offices in more than 100 nations. Formal delegations at Print are expected to range from the European community, including Russia and Ukraine; the Asian community, including China, India, Japan and Korea; as well as several Latin American nationas, including Aregntina, Brazil and Chile.

Six special events have been planned at PRINT 01 for international attendees:

  • The Official International Print Conference Opening, Sept. 6

  • Asian Pacific Day, Sept. 7

  • Latin American Day, Sept. 8

  • Canadian Day, Sept. 9

  • European Day, Sept. 10

  • Middle East and African Day, Sept. 11.

Each of these events will feature a conference program with presentations of market conditions and trends in the focus region.

About one-third of the international attendance at Print 97 came from Latin America, confirming the show’s emergence as the dominant event in the Western hemisphere. Europe and the Asia/Pacific region, however, each accounted for one-quarter of all international attendance, reflecting the show’s truly global attraction.

The Print 01 exhibit floor will be equally international in flavor. The German Pavilion is among the show’s largest displays. Other international organizations staging displays at Print 01 include Abigraf, the Brazilian Graphic Industry Assn.; ACIMGA, the Italian manufacturers’ association; AMEC-ENVASGRAF, the Spanish Packaging and Printing Machinery Manufacturers Assn.; ANIDIGRAF, the industry association in Mexico; and the Japan Printing Machinery Manufacturers Assn. Print will also feature a Canadian Pavilion.
