Must See ’Ems Winners to be Shown Off at Graph Expo

Each year, a panel of industry experts, journalists and consultants analyzes the graphic arts technologies that will be on display at the Graph Expo trade show and assembles a list of those they feel will have the greatest impact on the printing industry. This list of “Must See ’Ems” winners has traditionally been revealed at the pre-show Executive Outlook Conference, just a day before the Chicago show opens.

Responding to requests that the Must See ’Ems winners be announced earlier—to allow show visitors to better plan their booth visits—conference organizers have released the list in advance this year. In-plant managers attending the show should make plans to view these exciting new technologies. The 2012 Must See ’Ems award winners are:
