FTA/FFTA President Mark Cisternino cited exhibitor feedback as the primary reason for the date changes. “Those who exhibited at INFO*FLEX 2006, as well as past years, felt the event would be even more successful if the days were changed from the traditional Sunday through Monday format, to a Monday through Tuesday schedule. We’re pleased to announce that after contract re-negotiations with the hosting Palais des Congrès de Montréal, we were able to meet their demands. Exhibitors can expect a bustling show floor lasting the duration of the event.”
Jay Kaible, FTA’s director of business development adds, “FFTA has made it a point to tune into what attendees and exhibitors want to see in 2007. INFO*FLEX 2006 welcomed extended exhibit hours, which received an overwhelming amount of positive response. We anticipate the date changes for 2007 to be just as agreeable for all involved.”
The event, held every year alongside FFTA’s Annual Forum, is not the only one to receive alterations. Cisternino says, “We’re making some exciting changes to the 2007 Annual Forum as well. The Foundation’s Research & Technology Committee consisting of industry leaders representing all segments of the industry are working closely with the Forum Committee to develop new and engaging topics that speak to all members of the audience. Attendees can expect to be delighted with the high-level presentations and speakers we’ve got in the works. I believe all the changes to both events will prove to make 2007 a banner year, not only for FTA, but for Forum and INFO*FLEX attendees as well.”
FFTA’s 2007 Annual Forum will be held May 6-9, 2007. For more information in exhibiting or attending FFTA’s 2007 Annual Forum and INFO*FLEX Exhibition, visit FTA’s website at www.flexography.org or contact FFTA’s customer service department at 631-737-6020.
