AWA’s Corey Reardon says, “AWA events typically rotate locations year to year; however, the popularity of this seminar and the superb partnership with Flint Group Narrow Web and Accraply has worked so well, that we return to Minnesota for a fifth consecutive annual event. With the significant support and participation of leading international companies in this growing technology arena, we have been able to create a very special opportunity for anyone who needs to gain a sound education in heat shrink sleeves.”

Kelly Kolliopoulos, global marketing director for Flint Group Narrow Web, says, “Flint Group is excited to increase customer awareness of the shrink sleeve application by hosting this seminar. Attendees will see first-hand the flexographic printing of shrink sleeve labels using LED cure technology. We consider LED cure to be a step-change innovation enabling accelerated growth of shrink sleeves. We are happy to welcome customers to this seminar on the future of narrow web printing.”

Participants will take away a printed manual featuring all presentations and other useful reference materials. In addition to gaining insight into this growing application, attendees will enjoy an opportunity for peer networking and a chance to extend personal contacts across the industry, company says.
