Nov. 7, 2013—With collective growth of 23 percent in just three years, Flexographic Technical Association’s (FTA) INFO*FLEX show floor keeps expanding. The 2014 event, set for April 28-29 is no different, as the show floor has recently been increased by 20 booth units to accommodate surplus exhibitor interest as well as the 20 percent attendee growth seen at last April’s exhibition.
“Year after year INFO*FLEX has proven to be the No. 1 networking and most cost-effective package printing and converting event. It delivers the greatest ROI in the industry, hands down,” noted FTA’s Director of Membership & Business Development, Jay Kaible. “It comes complete with a “built-in audience” (FTA’s Annual Forum), 10 solution theater presentations, an array of additional networking opportunities and more than 220 companies that will provide vast amounts of new technology and solutions.”
Host site for the 2014 event is the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, Maryland, a cost-effective and easily accessible locale for the anticipated 1,700 attendees hailing from more than thirty countries.
By show time the exhibit floor is expected to feature more than 30 press manufacturers, whose offerings include traditional, hybrid, digital and inkjet solutions, solidifying INFO*FLEX’s reputation as the single largest gathering of packaging press manufacturers under a single roof in North America.
Additionally, the 2014 show floor is set to feature firms representing the entire gamut of the marketplace—from color selection, control, repeatability and the software that facilitates it, to combination printing and package prototyping technologies, to organizations offering ink, anilox roll and doctor blade innovations.
The newly expanded 2014 INFO*FLEX exhibit floor promises to be another sell-out event and stands as one of the strongest drawing cards for the industry’s premier educational event, FTA’s 2014 Annual Forum, held in conjunction with INFO*FLEX (April 27-30) and themed “Breaking New Ground.”
