Annual industry recognition event slated for Sept. 27 at the University of Chicago
Downtown Gleacher Center with Catering by Wolfgang Puck
East Rutherford, N.J. (June 26, 2014)―AMSP/NAPL/NAQP announces that a limited number of reserved table sponsorships are now available for the Annual Soderstrom Recognition Dinner on Saturday evening, September 27, 2014. The gala event, conveniently located in downtown Chicago at the beautiful University of Chicago Gleacher Center overlooking the Chicago River, takes place the night before the opening of GRAPH EXPO 2014 and will be catered by renowned chef Wolfgang Puck.
“Reserving a table at the Soderstrom Recognition Dinner offers companies the perfect opportunity to bring together their key executives and important customers or prospects in a wonderful setting,” says Joseph P. Truncale, Ph.D., President and Chief Executive Officer of AMSP/NAPL/NAQP, the new association created this year through the merger of the Association of Marketing Service Providers, National Association for Printing Leadership, and National Association of Quick Printers.
“Tasteful signage on the reserved tables also provides well-deserved recognition of a company’s support of our industry at one of its signature events,” adds Truncale, noting the evening will include presentation of the 54th annual Soderstrom Award and induction of several new members of the Soderstrom Society. Names of the 2014 award winner and new Society inductees will be announced shortly.
A reserved table sponsorship for a table of 10 for the evening, the industry’s premier recognition event, is offered at $5,000; a half-table of five is $2,500. Sponsorship inquiries should be directed to Marty Maloney of Broadford & Maloney Inc. at (203) 912-0804 or email@example.com.
The Gleacher Center venue and Wolfgang Puck catering, both first used for last year’s Soderstrom Dinner, have drawn widespread praise from attendees. Generally acclaimed as one of the industry’s most elegant evenings, the Soderstrom Recognition Dinner has, for more than half a century, been the foremost event for honoring industry leaders, each year bringing together old friends and new from all corners of the graphic communications industry.
