RONKONKOMA, NY | The Flexographic Technical Assn.'s Jay Kaible, director of business development, announces the organization's new role as co-sponsors of CPP Expo/Pack Expo Intl., slated for October 31—November 3 in Chicago's McCormick Pl.
Kaible explains, "Based on the excellent reputation of PACK EXPO and CPP EXPO, FTA management is certain this partnership will provide our membership with the expertise that will make their operations superior in its offerings. Flexography is in high demand and our members will be among the 45,000 packaging, processing and converting professionals gathered in Chicago to learn, network, and share ideas."
Converting & Package Printing (CPP) Expo president Leo Nadolske commented, "Working in concert with FTA enables us to offer excellent opportunities for the FTA membership to learn and network, especially those who represent many different sectors, such as folding carton, tag and label, flexible packaging and corrugated."
In terms of the joint expositions' conference programs, an FTA press release states the organization "will work closely with CPP EXPO to assemble a world-class conference program that offers its members valuable insight into improving operations, increasing efficiency, and maintaining equipment. For the converter serving the food & beverage, household, pharmaceutical and personal care industry sectors, this will be an ideal place to find the solutions aimed directly at the tag/label, flexible packaging, corrugated and folding carton segments." FTA's Kaible encourages those who are interested in presenting at the conference program to contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling him at 631-737-6020 x 20.
