Speakers include experts from many disciplines, and AWA president/CEO Corey M. Reardon will offer a review of the labeling and product decoration markets. PFFC's "On Print" columnist and printing expert Dr. Dene Taylor, president of Specialty Paper & Films, will present at the AWA seminar. His presentation, "Recent Developments in Digital Printing for Labels & Packaging," will cover ink jet, electrophotography, direct thermal, and thermal transfer.
