At just fewer than 300 booths, INFOFLEX 2019 was the second-largest installment in the show’s 37-year history. Where this year’s event did set records was in the amount of machinery on the show floor inside New Orleans’ Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. Nearly 20 percent of all exhibitors brought converting equipment to their booths, offering attendees the rare, and otherwise time-consuming and costly, opportunity to see in person everything from label presses to plate mounters and anilox cleaners to solvent recycling systems.
