Fall Conference 2017
Last year’s Fall Conference took place Oct. 9-11 in St. Louis, MO. Hundreds of flexographers attended the two-and-one-half day event to see the release of Flexographic Image Reproduction Specifications & Tolerances (FIRST) 6.0, hear a step-by-step discussion of the 2017 FLEXO Magazine Cover Project, have their most difficult flexography-related questions answered by an expert panel and network at 67 tabletop exhibits.
“We had some simple goals: celebrate the 20th anniversary of FIRST… and deliver solid technical content any flexographer could take back with them and put into practice,” said the event’s chair, Rory Marsoun of Esko. “I feel very confident we were able to meet those goals. Each moderator, presenter and panelist worked hard and came prepared with well-developed and relevant content.”
