Learning Experience

Come for the seminars and stay to visit the exhibit hall - or vice versa - either way PRINT 18 provides both under the same roof! Learning something new is a primary reason to attend an industry event and we've got plenty of educational opportunities at PRINT 18 for you.

Through the Learning Experience, our seminar and expert presentation program, you can choose from dozens of educational sessions that address topics of impact to the graphic communications industry today. Topical categories range from business management, sales, opportunities and new markets, to operational improvement, technical “how it's done” and the big picture topics that affect us all (the economy, industry, culture and the future). These sessions have been developed to focus on business growth for company owners and managers, production professionals, designers, customer service and sales professionals, but are valuable to anyone who wants to learn more about significant topics that impact our businesses today.

The Learning Experience venue is in McCormick Place South, lower level, across from the bus loading area. The seminar program features an expanded lounge and refreshment area, where you can wait between seminars or speak with seminar presenters after the program. Access to seminars requires a modest registration fee, with packages available for a single day's programs or the entire seminar series.

The Learning Experience Theater, on the exhibit hall floor, features three days of inspirational sessions with industry innovators. These sessions are free to attendees, but pre-registration is required as seating is limited. Several topic-specific discussions and exhibit hall tours start at the Innovation theater each day.
