PRINT01 Conference takes place in Chicago September 6-13, 2001

JULY 29, 2001 — The "PRINT" conference is held every four years. At the 2001 "PRINT" conference, aptly named "PRINT01," thousands of print/publishing professionals from around the globe will gather at McCormick Place in Chicago.

If possible, you should plan to attend this exciting event, where you can

  • Talk face-to-face with the folks who develop and sell state-of-the-art hardware products and software products.
  • See product demonstrations.
  • Test-drive new hardware and software.
  • Broaden your understanding of technical subjects such as digital photography, imposition, preflighting files, color management, process control, digital proofing, and many others.
  • Learn what the experts have to say about business issues and marketing trends and techniques.

What's Different About PRINT01?

There are a couple of things that make PRINT01 different from other, similar events:

FIRST: PRINT01 isn't just another trade show and conference - it is one of the largest and most comprehensive events of its kind for printers, creative professionals, converting professionals, direct-mail specialists, advertising executives, and publishing executives. At PRINT01 you'll find over 850 exhibitors on the 900,000-square-foot trade-show floor. In addition, you'll have the opportunity to attend seminars, workshops, exhibitor presentations, and other special events.

SECOND: PRINT01 goes full-steam throughout the weekend of September 8th & 9th - so even if you can't get away from your place of business during the week, you'll still be able to visit PRINT01 on Saturday and Sunday!

Basic Facts About the Show


PRINT01 begins on Wednesday, September 6, 2001 and ends on Thursday, September 13, 2001. For the first seven days, the exhibit floor (trade show) is open every day - including Saturday and Sunday - from 10:00 am until 5:00 pm. On the eighth and last day of the show, the exhibit floor is open from 10:00 am until 2:00 pm. Seminars, workshops, presentations, and other events are scheduled every day (including Saturday and Sunday) except for Thursday, September 13.


PRINT01 will be held at McCormick Place, Chicago's waterfront convention center.

How much

Getting into the PRINT01 show is a bargain — it costs only $40.00 for a pass that allows you to visit the exhibit floor all day every day during the show. Your $40.00 pass also gets you into several key presentations and special events. To attend seminars, workshops, or similar sessions, you must pay an additional amount. You can get details about how much it costs to attend PRINT01 sessions at the PRINT01 Web site (see below).
