The Graphic Arts Show Co. will hold its showcase, called "Print '09," in Chicago in September, Newspapers & Technology reported. Despite the economic challenges facing those in the print industry, GASC President Ralph J. Nappi said he remains optimistic about the future, as "the industry is experiencing a tough time, but we will survive and the most adaptable companies will thrive."

The show is planned for Sept. 11-16. In light of the dire economic situation, the GASC is planning to offer as much as US$3 million in credit to vendors and exhibitors to help with expenses associated with installation and set up of machinery and booths at the exhibit.

Newspapers will take center stage at the show, in an attempt to compensate for previous cancellations of the International Newspaper Group's events among other newspaper-oriented exhibitions.

The show will include a newspaper pavilion, where events and information aimed at professionals in the newspaper industry will be presented. A special "newspaper segment" will also take place September 14, according to Newspapers & Technology.

A study conducted by PriceWaterhouseCoopers (PWC) predicts losses of up to $13 billion in revenue by 2013 for the North American newspaper industry Editor & Publisher reported.

Declines in advertising revenue are seen as the main source of losses in the print news business, which the study estimates will drop by 32.7 percent over the next three years.

PWC's Global Entertainment and Media Outlook report found that the American newspaper industry is suffering more than its neighbor to the North, where slower decreases in circulation and increased readership of free dailies has helped the Canadian industry.

Classified ad sales are expected to be a major source of losses for newspapers in the coming years, with want ads projected to drop 50 percent in 2009. Real estate, retail, and automotive ads will also experience declines according to the study.

The study predicts that online advertising will eventually be profitable, but not in the immediate future, claiming, "an expanding economy will translate into growing online spending and project a return to double-digit growth in 2013."

Only less than 20 percent of British people said they trust newspapers, down from about three out of 10 last year. The figure was also below the global average, according to the report, the 10th annual Edelman Global Trust Barometer, published Tuesday, Press Gazette reported.

The study surveyed more than 4,500 college-educated adults who are interested in news. It found that those between ages 25 to 34 trust traditional media even more than those ages 35 to 64.

However, the UK's overall trust in the press media declined in the past year. Only 19 percent of UK respondents said they trust newspapers, down from 29 percent one year previously. The global average is 34 percent, Press Gazette reported.

Television, on the other hand, was trusted as a news source by one third, while radio was at 33 percent, down from 53 percent.

The Edelman report interviewed people by phone in 20 countries over a six-week period in November and December. In the United Kingdom, the level of trust in the media as an institution was the lowest, at 28 percent.
