Paperworld USA – World of School, Home & Office Products
Paperworld USA will take place from November 9-11, 2005 in Las Vegas, NV at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Paperworld USA is produced by Messe Frankfurt, Inc. in cooperation with the School, Home, & Office Products Association (SHOPA) and PROPAPER (the Spanish stationery trade association).
The exhibit hall area is nearly sold out for this year’s event with many new exhibit companies from the U.S. and around the world. With over 400 exhibit companies anticipated, this year’s show promises to intrigue attendees with interesting products never seen before here in the United States.
There will be several featured national pavilions on the show floor from Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Brazil, the United Kingdom, China, Hong Kong, and Taiwan bringing new product trends to the United States. Additionally, there will be a special featured area called the Creative Club within the context of the Creative area, which features many ecelectic and high-end type products. The four product categories at Paperworld USA include School, Home & Office Products; Imaging; Scriptum and Creative.
Another benefit to visitors of Paperworld USA will be the opportunity to browse through the hundreds of new products on display in the New Product Showcase area. This special feature area will host the year’s new products in an easy to see area. Awards will be given to participating companies for “Category Awards“ and “Best Overall Product."
The 2005 SHOPA Kids In Need Foundation Award Gala, “A World of School Supplies for Kids,“ honoring Staples will be held on Wednesday, November 9, from 6:00-9:30 p.m. at the Las Vegas Hilton in Las Vegas, Nevada. A Silent Auction will be held during the reception to benefit this recognized charity. For more information on this event, please contact SHOPA at 937.297.2250.
The U.S. Department of Commerce awarded Paperworld USA with its prestigious International Buyer Program (IBP). Paperworld USA is honored to be one of only 28 trade shows in the United States selected by the Agency to encourage international trade delegations of buyers from around the world to source new products from U.S. manufacturers. “We are pleased that the international marketplace has been very receptive and has encouraged our ongoing initiatives. We look forward to serving both the domestic and international communities and expanding our efforts to introduce the school and office products industry as well as the Association to the global marketplace during 2005 and beyond,” according to SHOPA President Steve Jacober.
