August 27, 2012 - More than 1,600 flexographic printing professionals will descend on San Diego, CA on April 28 - May 1, 2013 for FTA’s 55th Annual Forum. Next year’s theme, “Right Here. Right Now.” will be the focus of the four-day affair.
Billed as the industry’s premier learning and networking event, the 2013 technical conference is chaired by Bob Mullen, Sun Chemical Corp. and Pepper Stokes, Robbie Fantastic Flexibles.
“The theme of “Right Here. Right Now.” was selected because it is the crux of the proceedings,” said Mullen. “Everything you need to know to maximize and sustain success in today’s challenging and ever-changing print environment will be discussed, right here (in San Diego) and right now (April 28-May 1).”
The Marriott Marquis & Marina--Forum Headquarters--recently completed a $200 million renovation, including 1,360 remodeled rooms and suites with sweeping bay views of the hotel’s private marina on San Diego Bay.
Steps away is the convention center, where Forum’s sister event, the INFO*FLEX Exhibition will take place. Both venues are minutes from the world-famous San Diego Zoo and close to the vibrant Gaslamp Quarter entertainment district and Seaport Village. Both are known for world-class dining and nightlife.
