Home' FLEXO Magazine : April 2015 Contents Impression," "Color Mayhem to Color Con-
trol" and "Manufacturing---Not Magic."
To date, FLEXO has inter viewed the cochairs
(February); learned everything we can about
the host site, Nashville, and its venues; pre-
sented a synopsis of every session, stretched
over three months (January-March) and
worked with session chairs and presenters to
accurately convey the plan.
It's time to execute.
LARGER & LIVELIER
On to INFO*FLEX, where we'll "Imagine
Longer... Larger... Livelier... Bustling at ev-
ery turn---that's the promise of this year's sold
out trade oor. Exhibitor numbers are up,
topping 220, with booth count at 280. Aisles
will be populated by 2,000 or more---record
Just as we did with Forum, FLEXO has led
reports on INFO*FLEX from a label printer's
perspective (March) and again from a wide
web converter's perspective (this issue, page
28), and even examined the history and
evolution of the show (February). We've
mapped out the oor; color coded booths
by classi cation (this issue, pages 3-5); done
everything we can to make the exhibit easy
to navigate, connect with important business
partners and keep potential new alliances in
It all began when we manned the INFO*-
FLEX resign booth (last April, in Baltimore)
and then progressed through our collection
of summaries of intent from 100 percent
of 2015's exhibitors, which we of course
compiled in a single place for you to refer-
ence---this issue, FLEXO's signature O cial
INFO*FLEX Exhibit Guide.
Welcome to Nashville and FTA's 2015 Annual
Forum and INFO*FLEX Exhibition. Glad to
have you here.
and the camera on my iPhone is more
than adequate. But whatever camera
you're packing won't be of much use,
unless you remember...
• Power Cords Forget printed money---
these are the currency you want to be
rolling in at INFO*FLEX. Let someone
borrow a phone charger in exchange for
a drink at Monday night's Social Net-
working Reception. Got a power strip?
Rent its outlets by the hour, like a motel
• Ask Questions Many of the smartest
minds in exography will be gathered
under the Music City Center's roof, and
they're there to talk. Learn as much as
possible from them---see what's new, how
they think the industry is trending, what
they think is exciting in the world of exo
• Wear Comfortable Shoes Even the nest
leathers from Salvatore Ferragamo, Gucci
and their Italian kin start to hurt. And
men have it easy---any woman who wears
heels deserves recognition in the "Special
Achievement" category of the Excellence
in Flexography Awards. Pack some comfy
shoes. Or, trade someone your laptop
power cord for a piggyback ride
• Be Hungry No matter how much bacon
you eat, come with an open mind, a
desire to learn and an appetite for all
No matter how much bacon you eat, come with
an open mind, a desire to learn and an appetite
for all things flexo."
