Print 17 Exhibitors Recognized for Making Significant Strides in Industry Advancements




RINT 17, the most comprehensive gathering of the printing, publishing, in-plant, graphic communications and mailing/fulfillment communities in the Americas, is happy to announce the 2017 MUST SEE ’EMS—the exhibits on the show floor that attendees simply can’t miss. The forty-four MUST SEE ’EMS winners named below will be highlighted at PRINT 17, occurring September 10 – 14 at McCormick Place South in Chicago. Chosen by a panel of industry experts, these innovative technologies represent the most compelling advances in 11 categories spanning the print production workflow.

“It’s our honor to recognize these outstanding organizations that have gone above and beyond to drive innovation through their leading-edge technologies,” says Thayer Long, President of NPES. “These MUST SEE ’EMS winners demonstrate a vision that will advance the future of our industry.”

The “Best of Category” winners for each of the 11 categories will be revealed during the pre-show conference OUTLOOK 17, which takes place on Sunday, September 10 from 8 am to 12:00 noon, immediately prior to the noon opening of PRINT 17. Additionally, OUTLOOK 17 will also feature the announcement of this year’s Legacy Award, given to a previous MUST SEE ’EMS winner that has had a lasting and profound impact on the graphic communications industry.

An in-depth look at this year’s MUST SEE ’EMS will be offered via the pre-show webinar, “New Technologies from the PRINT 17 MUST SEE ’EMS,” featuring host and program coordinator Hal Hinderliter. This free webinar will air live on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 at 1:00 PM EDT to highlight this year’s MUST SEE ’EMS winners.
