PRINT Named One of the Top 25 Fastest-Growing Trade Shows in Overall Attendance

Building on the honor of having been named one of the top 100 U.S. Trade Shows by Trade Show News Network (TSNN), the Association for Print Technologies (APTechSM) announced that its signature event, PRINT, has ranked in the top 25 fastest-growing events in attendance. The award, presented by TSNN and its parent company, Tarsus Media Group, recognizes trade shows demonstrating consistent growth based on number of visitors.

"The top fastest-growing show winners were chosen by their show's growth rate between 2015-2017," said Tarsus Media President Rachel Wimberly. PRINT is an annual conference and exhibition that hosts the largest gathering of printing services providers in North America, representing attendees from 86 countries. In 2017, more than 22,000 visitors came to Chicago, including nearly 16,000 buyers from 8,565 companies. "This award speaks to the evolving expansion of the printing and graphic communications industry," said Thayer Long, APTech President. "We are proud to be placed in elite company with many of the event industry's most recognized names."

Printing Industries of America has been a participant in the PRINT shows for many years and looks forward to returning again in 2018. PRINT 18 will take place September 30 through October 2, 2018, at McCormick Place in Chicago. For more information on Print 18, visit
