Veritiv to Host 2016 Chicago Paper Show

(Chicago, Oct. 20, 2016) Veritiv Corporation (VRTV) will host its 27th annual Chicago Paper Show on Tuesday, November 1, 2016, at the Westin Chicago River North.
The Veritiv Chicago Paper Show attracts approximately 800 prominent designers, corporate end-users and commercial printers from the Greater Chicago area — one of the most exciting graphic arts markets in the country. The theme of this year’s show is “MAKER – a person that makes or produces something.”
“MAKER refers to people — including designers, printers, and paper makers — who creatively make or produce an idea, design or an object with passion. Each exhibit and exhibitor at this year’s Chicago Paper show will support this theme,” said Andrew Dembitz, Director of Specification, for Veritiv–Chicago.
Several leading paper suppliers will have showcase exhibits at the event. Mohawk’s exhibit entitled, “Celebrating the Culture of the Craft,” will include The Mohawk Maker Quarterly Issue 10, as well as a special pop-up exhibition of past issues of this celebrated publication. In addition, Sappi will exhibit “Ideas that Matter,” demonstrating how designers use paper to make things happen. The exhibit will exclusively feature Illinois-based designers whose designs support charitable causes. Other exhibits include:
— Chicago 50-Print Collateral – an annual exhibit – featuring fifty of Chicago’s finest companies and institutions.
— The 2016-2017 Newberry Library Calendar presented by Munro Campagna artist representatives.
— The Chicago Design Museum, a new venue, which supports the Chicago Graphic Arts Market.
— An environmental display by the Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI).

The keynote presentation, “Evolution of Offset and Print,” will be delivered by Daniel Dejan, Sappi’s North American ETC Print and Creative Manager and sponsored by Sappi. Dejan will discuss how the printing industry is incorporating new technology and evolving.
The Veritiv Chicago Paper Show features 13 of the world’s leading paper mills including: Appleton Coated, CTI Paper USA, Finch, Glatfelter, Iggesund, International Paper, MACtac, Mohawk, Neenah Paper, Sappi Fine Paper, Verso, West Rock and Yupo.
