RESTON, VA | The 2014 MUST SEE 'EMS winners have been selected and will be on exhibit at GRAPH EXPO 14 and the co-located CPP EXPO show, coming September 28–October 1, 2014, to Chicago's McCormick Place. Chosen by a panel of industry experts, these innovative technologies represent the most compelling advances in 11 categories spanning the entire graphic communications industry. 

"Every year, the MUST SEE 'EMS competition is one of the highlights of the GRAPH EXPO and PRINT shows," says Ralph Nappi, president of the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC). "This year is certainly no exception with exciting new technologies and innovative advances in each category and industry segment."
