The Must See 'Ems "Best of Category" honors were announced at the end of the Executive Outlook Conference on Sunday, Sept. 28, opening day of Graph Expo 14, which runs from Sept. 28 - Oct. 1 in Chicago's McCormick Place together with co-located CPP Expo.
Chosen from among all 2014 Must See 'Ems winners, these technologies represent the cream of this year's technology crop in the graphic communications industry.
"The Must See 'Ems competition is an annual highlight at Graph Expo and Print," says GASC President Ralph Nappi. "To make that elite list is a great achievement, and to then be selected as a 'Best of Category' winner is an even greater honor."
The 2014 "Best of Category" winners were chosen from among all 2014 Must See 'Ems winners by a selection committee comprised of industry experts, journalists, and consultants.
