Fall Conference 2020 logo

October 4-7
Cincinnati Marriott at RiverCenter



Fall Conference 2020’s eight technical sessions will feature in-depth presentations from more than a dozen industry experts. Together, they will demonstrate how collaboration yields superior results.

  • Hear plate manufacturers debate whose plate is best for different types of printing. Then, they’ll work together to debunk the statement “It’s always the plate” when examining the cause of common print defects.
  • Learn how internal and external teams employ different prepress practices for flexography and digital to yield matching print samples, while utilizing state-of-the-art enhancements.
  • Find out what color management is and isn’t, while examining flexographically and digitally printed samples aimed at the same target.
  • Discover how consumer product companies test and evaluate new packaging concepts to determine if they are viable for the market and producible in the flexographic printing environment.


Originally planned for FORUM 2020, three technical sessions covering plate making, print quality scoring and troubleshooting defects:

Print Quality Scoring: Friend or Foe?

An inside look at print quality scoring from a brand that requires it, agencies who monitor it, and printers who control it.

Leading off Fall Conference 2020 will be the resurrection of the Great Plate Debate, where technical representatives from leading plate manufacturers will have an open panel discussion based on their technologies and your concerns.

What are your concerns? Are they about current printing plate technologies? Do you have general printing plate related issues? Are you unsure of your best practices?
