Leo Nadolske, president, CPP EXPO – the Converting and Package Printing Expo, and Ralph Nappi, president of the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC) – producer of the global PRINT 13 tradeshow and conference, jointly announce partnership plans for the co-location of CPP Expo 2013 with PRINT 13, slated to be held September 8-12, 2013 in Chicago, Illinois.

According to Nadolske, “Our initial goal for this year’s show was to move to the fall and stay in , so the concept of this strategic alliance CPP Expo 2013 with PRINT 13 was the ideal solution. Beyond moving away from a very crowded spring timeframe, it provides the ideal scenario for our package printing and converting event since attendees will be able to see and explore all the very latest in digital, pre-press and design technologies and products that are so vital to their customers’ brand marketing strategies.”

Attendees of either CPP 2013 or PRINT 13 will gain access to the combined offerings of both events with a full entry pass to all of the exhibits, which will span both the North and South Halls of McCormick Place. Additionally, attendees will also have the opportunities to participate in an expanded array of top-notch educational programming and to take advantage of a multitude of industry peer networking opportunities provided by the co-location of the two events.

“Based on what we have learned from attendees seeking package printing and converting equipment, and hearing the support of the manufacturers, we’re convinced that the timing is right to meet the needs of the growing package printing and converting industry by partnering CPP Expo 2013 with PRINT 13,” states Nappi.
