FTA Fall Conference Open for Registration


BOHEMIA, NY | Registration is open for the 2014 Fall Conference & Tabletop Exhibit of the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA). The event, entitled “Beyond the Concept: Innovation in Action,” will take place October 20–22 at the DoubleTree by Hilton, Minneapolis, MN. 

Under the leadership of conference chairs PJ Fronczkiewicz, Flint Group Flexographic Products, and Bill Malm, Flexo Wash, the conference will explore recent and transformative innovations in the flexographic marketplace and how such advancements contribute to greater process control, waste reductions, productivity increases, and shorter make-ready times.

The two and one half day agenda features the following sessions:

• Process of Innovation

• Indirect Flexo

• FIRST 5.0 and Certification

• Innovation and the Image Carrier (Parts I, II, and III)

• 2014 Technical Innovation Technology

• Printed Electronics • RFID to Manage Plate Storage

• Innovation & Expanded Gamut

“Over the last several years, we have seen a sea of remarkable ideas come ashore in our industry, especially in prepress and plate technologies,” says Fronczkiewicz. “In many cases and for many printers, radical improvements in print quality can now be accomplished with ease. It’s interesting to hear presentations of newly available technologies, but it can be difficult to trim away the marketing “fluff” from the real usefulness of these products. So our focus will be on drilling down to the application level, demonstrating how these innovations are actually working in the field. Anyone in the market for these technologies will be able to hear how others are truly putting them to use, and see if there’s a match.”

A dedicated exhibitor area will feature the latest technological advancements in products, software, and services from more than 50 of the industry’s companies.

Early bird rates offer a $100 savings and are valid through September 19. Consumer Product Companies that hold an active FTA membership are entitled to complimentary registrations. Printers/converters and design firms enjoy specially discounted rates of $350 per FTA member and can take advantage of a buy two, get the third free offer.
