Forum co-chair Pepper Stokes, robbie fantastic flexibles commented, “Forum 2014 will truly be a groundbreaking experience. In developing the program content, we made it our number-one priority to provide the industry with entirely new sessions and entirely new content, and do so in a way that will engage, excite and drive each audience member to take back what he or she learns and apply it to his or her business model right away.”
The INFO*FLEX Exhibition, themed “A Gold Mine of Solutions,” recently reported an expansion of the show floor due to increased exhibitor demand and a 14 percent increase in attendance over 2013. From April 28-29, the show floor will host more than 215 exhibiting companies, including more than 30 packaging press manufacturers. In addition, 10 key packaging/converting presentations in the Solutions Theater will be offered along with a complimentary Social Networking Reception that will take place immediately at the close of INFO*FLEX on Monday, April 28. In total, this amounts to 10 hours of networking and the opportunity to see hundreds of solutions from the leading companies in the package printing and converting industry.
“INFO*FLEX has grown tremendously over the past four years alone” said Jay Kaible, FTA director of membership & business development. “Just in the last three weeks we have expanded the show floor and added 20 new companies to the list of exhibitors. INFO*FLEX will be the largest and most successful event in its 32-year history. More than 1,700 attendees will come through the exhibit hall and be amazed at the variety of new products, technologies and information available to them over the course of two days. Once again, INFO*FLEX will be a “Gold Mine of Solutions.”
