FTA Forum 2014 “Breaking New Ground”



It’s almost here. Compelling educational seminars. Business networking. Plus, 220 of the industry’s leading innovators serving the package printing and converting marketplace. We’re talking about FTA Annual Forum 2014 and INFO*FLEX.

The Flexographic Technical Association’s (FTA) 2014 Annual Forum is the only event in North America that encompasses the entire package printing and converting marketplace under one roof. Nowhere else will you find a faster and more efficient way to identify new solutions to increase your productivity and profitability, and improve your print quality.

Anderson & Vreeland’s Jessica Harkins is a co-chair of this year’s conference along with Pepper Stokes of packaging company Robbie Fantastic Flexibles. The theme for this year’s Forum, “Breaking New Ground”, was chosen because of the need to address changes in the industry, and how people are learning about and implementing those changes.

Education sessions take place during the mornings (April 28th and 29th) of the conference. There will be an incredibly diverse group of industry professionals who represent all facets of flexo. The format will be surprisingly innovative, as there will be a plethora of new knowledge and educational best practices from the major manufacturers and industry experts. Exciting and informative sessions include:

  • Expanded Gamut Printing, The Customer & You!
  • Managing Your Pressroom Efficiencies
  • Emerging Flexo Markets: Is Your Business Positioned for Future Growth?
  • Flexo Mythbusters
  • Refining the Flexo Process: FQC in Action
  • Tags & Labels
  • Flexible Packaging
  • Corrugated
  • FIRST (Flexographic Image Reproduction Specifications & Tolerances)
  • Flexography 101
  • Flexography 102

Afternoons at the Forum are reserved for INFO*FLEX 2014, with more than 220 exhibitors on the show floor where you can connect with the most knowledgeable minds in the industry in a true networking environment.

Here are details of the “Breaking New Ground” 2014 Forum:
