Veritiv Corp., Atlanta, Ga., USA, will host its 27th annual Chicago Paper Show on Tuesday, Nov. 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 papermakers—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 titled 

"Celebrating the Culture of the Craft" will include The Mohawk Maker Quarterly Issue 10, as well as a special pop-up exhibit of past issues of this 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 50 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). 
  • Veritiv Private Brands showcasing the company's unique coated and uncoated grades.
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. This year's event also includes wide-format suppliers General Formulations, Gilman Brothers, Nekoosa Coated Products, and Ultraflex Systems.

Proceeds from the show will benefit Marwen, a nationally recognized art education organization, providing free visual art programs to Chicago's underserved youth in grades 6-12.
