Training

The Training by Exhibitors program is a powerful approach to educating your buyer, showcasing your product capabilities and building valuable, profitable relationships with your customers in the critical early stages and throughout their purchasing decision process–it’s content marketing at its best! Combine the influence of your educational class with the resources in your booth, and you have a powerful combination creating lasting impact before, during, and after the sale is made!

Sponsorship Opportunities

Brand recognition is a crucial part of increasing booth traffic and brand credibility. Taking advantage of opportunities that prominently display your company name, logo, products, etc., increases your visibility to those who are at the event and improves post-show recognition. Study after study confirms that exhibitors who actively market their trade-show presence enjoy superior foot traffic and increased post-show sales.

What our Exhibitors have to say

GRAPHICS PRO EXPO is the ideal venue to showcase your products and services to the graphics market.
But don't take our word for it...

James Stanaway
Director of Marketing
Epilog Laser

"Each show is a fantastic opportunity to showcase our products and technology in real time, interact with prospective and existing customers in a meaningful way, and provide educational resources to the laser engraving community. We can't wait to kick off the next schedule!"

Liz Haas
Marketing Director / Education Coordinator
Rayzist Photomask

"GRAPHICS PRO has been a staple in our industry for hosting quality shows that allow us to display equipment and connect with customers on a personal level. Rayzist Photomask has experienced absolute professionalism, communication, and a great staff that is quick to assist exhibitors."

Gary Barker
National Sales Manager
Digital Technology Group

"GPX provides DTG the greatest return on our investment. They consistently attract attendees committed to learning through the education sessions and investing in their business on the expo floor. These regional events have allowed us to strengthen our customer relationships across the country. Exhibiting at GPX is simply a must."

Victoria Nardini
Director, Event Sales & Marketing
STAHLS'

"Trade shows have always been a great way to connect with customers, meet new people in the industry, and learn about new technologies and products. By having three different markets represented at each of their events, GPX exhibitors and attendees can find new products and technologies outside of their core business. It also gives brands the opportunity for additional exposure they might not experience through other mediums."

Clay Barbera
Owner
CorelTrainer

"Can't wait for the next GRAPHICS PRO EXPO! GPX puts on a great event and knows how to bring the buyers!"

Meghan Patke
Marketing Manager
Nazdar SourceOne

“I feel like we had less tire-kickers and more people there for a purpose. I believe the quality of our leads reflected that. I think your team does a great job organizing and putting on trade shows and everyone is a pleasure to work with.”

Rene Rosales
Marketing & Education Manager
TEXMAC Inc.

“Thanks again for taking good care of us. The traffic on the first day was impressive; all three of our machines sold off the floor and our lead count was great for a two-day show. Looking forward to the next opportunity to exhibit at GPX!”

Joseph Eric
North American Sales Manager
TheMagicTouch USA

"Amazing show, stayed busy throughout the show, and sales were great!"

Stephen Mills

"The GPX Charlotte show was very consistent with traffic and we had great meetings/dinners with partner suppliers. We look forward to more shows with you!"

Bill Lydick
President

“The quality of the attendees was over the top; they came with a plan to learn and grow their companies. For the exhibitors that choose to sit it out and watch, you missed the best opportunity! To those attendees thinking about coming to upcoming GPX events, my advice is ANY WAY, ANY HOW get there.”

Nathan Sletten

“We thought the show was very good! Loved the traffic on the last day and it seemed like there were a lot of new people in our booth. All positive from my side!”

David Richie
Domestic Sales Director
FlexiShield Paint Protection Film

“We had a very successful venue and such a fantastic time in Indianapolis with GPX! From the day we arrived to set up, until the moment we tore down and left, I felt welcomed, well represented, and supported in the best light without failure. We can’t wait to expand our footprint and influence for future events in which we will be attending, showcasing our growth and the newest products we are bringing to our industry!”

Eric Callaham
Marketing Manager

“The show was fantastic. We learned a lot more about the industry, made some strong connections with great people, and looking forward to what the future holds from the insurance side of things. GPX was well run, very professional, and very easy to navigate as an exhibitor.”

Braden Todd
Owner
GS2 Awards

“We had a lot of almost constant interest. We also had a number of our current customers come by, so it was great to finally meet them in person. Not sure how many sales will come from the show, but with all the positive interest it seems like it was well worth it and that they'll happen. Now we want to see what happens with multiple shows and see if we can build up even more interest and awareness.”

Linda Surlak
Marketing Specialist
Canon Solutions America

“The show exceeded our expectations. We were thrilled with the level of interest the attendees had in really learning about our Canon Colorado printer, especially for car wrap applications. Many attendees were surprised that Canon even had the equipment and the media to support car wrapping. GPX show personnel were easy to work with and did a great job running a smooth, well-organized show.”

Jay Kroll
Product Manager
General Formulations

“Traffic was good and steady with a nice mix of both newbies and established shops. The amount of time the show was open each day worked well, the graphics were nice throughout the space, check-in was easy, and the overall venue location was great for after-show meetings.”
