IADD·FSEA 2015 Odyssey Filling Up Fast


TOPEKA, KS | The 2015 IADD·FSEA Odyssey, scheduled for May 13–15, 2015, at the Renaissance Convention Center, Schaumburg, IL, reportedly will be where “Innovation and Tradition Converge.” The event is produced by the International Assn. of Diecutting and Diemaking (IADD) and the Foil & Specialty Effects Assn. (FSEA). 

Show management says exhibit space is filling fast as suppliers of a vast array of services, products, and equipment targeted specifically to the fields of diecutting/diemaking, print finishing, folding carton, corrugated, and specialty markets reserve booth space. “…we already have indicators that more equipment will be operating on the show floor than in previous years,” says Darrel Griffin, IADD President and co-chair of the Odyssey planning task force.

He adds that some exhibitors also are requesting larger booth spaces than in previous years. For example, Gerber Innovations has doubled its square footage over the company’s exhibit space during the 2013 Odyssey. “Gerber has increased our booth size for the 2015 Odyssey based on the strong return on investment experienced from Odyssey 2013,” says Gerber president Steven Gore. “We have exhibited at every Odyssey show and have never been disappointed with the results.”

The 2015 Odyssey has confirmed the attendance of industry leaders such as AmeriKen Die Supply, Carton Craft Supply, Serviform, Bobst North America, Brandtjen & Kluge, and Adams Technologies.

The event will again offer the Techshop, which simulates a working production shop floor where technical sessions are taught on-press throughout the three-day event. This educational venue is said to help attendees discover practical solutions to everyday challenges from press operators who are experts in their field. Early Techshop commitments reveal that equipment will be on site from Associated Pacific Machine Corp.,  Gerber Innovations, Preco, and Marbach.
