FLEXO Magazine : June 2011
FTA TODAY ers and potential prospects than shows in the past,” he said. “Monday was a great day for me. We were really pleased with the networking, the meet and greets, the food, the traffic, the intensity of the event and the interest of the attendees.” Aaron Lessing, Apex North America, Donora, PA , a Forum speaker and INFO*FLEX exhibitor, reported that the meet- ing generated interest in the state of the art. “ T his show has been just terrific. We’ve seen non-stop traffic. We’ve received numerous queries on our technology,” he said. “ Comments related to the presentations have been very positive. We’ve got a lot of follow-up work to do and that’s a good thing. We are very satisfied with the number, quality and depth of the attendees. This is the place to be.” Rick Rosenberger of Solo Cup in Owings Mills, MD , came away from the Forum with specifications on his mind. “Based on what I saw at FTA, we can see that FIRST and G7 are going to be of extreme importance. The whole idea of FIRST certification and getting us standardized is coming down the pike. We—and I mean most all printers/converters—have to be positioned to capitalize on its advantages. ” He was equally impressed with the networking opportuni- ties. “INFO*FLEX, as always, was terrific. Where else can you walk in, talk to people, open up doors and keep relation- ships going? The sharing of ideas and comments was great. I talked to everybody.” Ruth Buckley, Bancroft Bag, Inc., West Monroe, LA , noted the blend of camaraderie and content. “Good show. I always enjoy INFO*FLEX. It seems you do more networking there than anywhere else. The briefing on UPC codes was valuable. I collected some great information.” For Josh Burke of C-P Flexible Packaging in York, PA , the Forum was all good. “Good information was presented in a good way with multiple speakers and diverse topics that allowed for audience interaction. Turnout at INFO*FLEX was certainly good and the interaction with vendors and suppliers was a critical component of my experience. ” He also appreciated the hospitality. “Accommodations were very nice. Staff was courteous and professional.” Forum provided a learning experience for Brad Ehlers of Berry Plastics in Kent, WA. “I really enjoyed the new technol- ogy portion of the program. Overall, it was a very informative Forum. The agenda was well constructed. The sessions just kept rolling along and succeeded in keeping everyone’s inter- est,” he said. “And, it looked like INFO*FLEX was bigger and better than ever!” Michelle Talko of Prairie State Group in Franklin Park, IL reflected on the Forum as it relates to her career, “It was inter- esting coming from the supplier side of things and transition- ing to the printer side. As a supplier, I didn’t attend many of the sessions. As a printer still trying to learn all the technical aspects of things, it was worthwhile. I got a lot out of it,” she said. “It was good to see people review terminology and lead into new technologies out there. I felt equipped to go back to the office and start researching. I learned things [at Forum] that I wouldn’t have learned without being there.” MORE u Photo credits: Katie Dubois www.flexography.org June 2011 FLEXO 11
