Dscoop (the Digital Solutions Cooperative) has announced that Dscoop7, the association’s seventh annual conference that took place March 22-24, 2012 in Washington, D.C., was named to the 2012 Trade Show News Network's (TSNN) Top 250 Trade Shows in the United States list. The list represents the top 250 trade shows held last year in the U.S. ranked by net square footage. “It is so exciting to maintain the momentum Dscoop has gained in the last eight years as we begin to prepare for 2014,” says Chris Petro, Dscoop global chairman. “Throughout the year Dscoop looks to develop new partnerships, build out our programs and provide new member benefits that allow our growing membership to continue to deliver superior print service.”
Building on a successful 2012 event, more than 2,000 attendees were at Dscoop8, February 21-23 in Nashville, TN, USA, marking a 30 percent increase in core North American attendees from last year’s event, including attendees from 38 countries around the world. The Dscoop8 Solutions Showcase featured a 33,830-plus net-square-foot exposition floor with 95 exhibiting Partners.
The Dscoop annual conference features three days of general sessions, educational workshops and deep-dive seminars. Reflecting the growing international scope of the North American event, select Dscoop8 sessions were translated into Portuguese and Spanish.
“Dscoop will continue to be the premier forum for the HP Graphic Arts community to come together to showcase the latest digital technologies, unveil new products and hear up-to-date advances in the industry year-round,” says Petro. “We look forward to continued success at Dscoop9 next March.”
Dscoop7 competed with a wide range of industries to make the list, including gift and home furnishings markets, aircraft, retail, commercial real estate, construction equipment and automotive special products. A complete list of TSNN’s top 250 trade shows can be found at www.TSNN.com/toplists-us.
