CMM International 2003: The Converting Machinery/Materials
Conference and Exposition
April 14 - 17, 2003, McCormick Place, Chicago, IL, USA
NEW YORK, NY, USA—CMM Events and FTA (Flexographic Technical Association) say they have joined forces "to provide narrow web and tag and label machinery and materials suppliers with a very cost-effective method of showcasing their products and technologies at [CMM]."
According to both industry groups, the Narrow Web Pavilion will be launched at CMM International 2003 "to provide FTA members with an opportunity to reach the more than 28,000 converting professionals that attend the world's largest event of its kind." Says Leo Nadolske, VP of CMM Events: "The new FTA Pavilion will provide narrow web suppliers with a unique, cost-effective opportunity to participate in CMM and reach buyers they won't see at any other trade show. We expect very good traffic to this area as, in most cases, the companies will be new to CMM."
FTA members will get the perks of complimentary entrance to the exhibits and discounts on selected conference sessions, says CMM Events. "As a long-time supporter of CMM, FTA will conduct educational sessions at part of the [expo's] comprehensive conference program."
