Jan. 2, 2014—INFO*FLEX 2014 will be the largest in the exhibition’s 32-year history. To date, all but 40 booths —222 of 262—have been reserved. Eighty-five percent of available space is taken and a sell-out can be guaranteed, making the fourth straight-year that the show floor has been filled to capacity. The event, slated for April 28-29 will take place at the Baltimore Convention Center in Baltimore, MD. It will take place alongside Flexographic Technical Association’s 55th Annual Forum (April 27-30).
INFO*FLEX saw a 14 percent surge in attendance in 2013, with both domestic and international traffic peaking to all-time highs. That, coupled with an exhibitor approval rating of nearly 90 percent, solidifies INFO*FLEX’s reputation as the largest and most comprehensive global package printing and converting networking event.
More than 30 conventional and digital press manufacturers will join the best in the business to offer hundreds of solutions to the more than 1,700 attendees who hail from all sectors of the package printing and converting industry and who make the trip from all over the globe, including Australia, Canada, China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Korea, Mexico, the United Kingdom and the United States.
Jay Kaible, FTA director of membership and business development commented, “INFO*FLEX has seen tremendous growth over the past few years. In fact, just 3 years ago INFO*FLEX was a 210 booth show and this year we’re going to see a record-breaking 262 booth units occupied.”
Kaible attributes the dynamic growth to the high exhibitor approval rating and the increase in international and domestic INFO*FLEX attendees in search of cutting-edge products and solutions that will shape the industry for years to come.
Themed “A Gold Mine of Solutions” INFO*FLEX is held in conjunction with FTA’s Annual Forum: Breaking New Ground, which serves as the industry’s premier educational event and offers 11 technical sessions, more than 30 presentations and a wealth of additional networking opportunities. Both events are sponsored by Flexographic Technical Association (FTA), the world’s leading technical society dedicated to promoting and advancing the flexographic print process.
