Label & Narrow Web will produce another in its continuing series of industry symposiums November 14 and 15 in New Brunswick, NJ, USA. The event will feature label converters discussing current management issues, and will take place at The Heldrich, a new conference hotel in the center of New Brunswick.
The L&NW Label Symposium also will feature a tabletop exhibition area with several dozen industry exhibitors, who will be available throughout the event to meet with converter attendees.
“Following the success of our symposium last year in Milwaukee, we will continue our focus on topics that are of interest to owners and managers at label converting companies,” says L&NW Editor Jack Kenny. “Rather than technical subjects, we will offer useful information about organization, business strategies and directions that will inform and educate the attendees.”
Among the speakers and topics will be Peter Renton of Lightning Labels, addressing 21st Century marketing for label printers; Elisha Tropper of T3 Associations, speaking on positioning your company for sale; and Tom Southworth of Southworth Associates, focusing on Lean Manufacturing for the printer.
Of special note is a presentation by Barry Sanel of Cadbury Schweppes Americas Beverages. Sanel, formerly of CCL Label, manages packaging and creative services at Cadbury Schweppes, and is responsible for designing, redesigning and developing the visual packaging communication of Mott's, Nantucket Nectars, Yoo-hoo Chocolate Drink and other high profile premium brands.
The L&NW Label Symposium is produced in cooperation with the Tag & Label Manufacturers Institute (TLMI).
The fee for converter attendees is $350 per person. For TLMI members the fee is $300. Details are available at www.lnwsymposium.com. Suppliers interested in exhibiting at the tabletop area should contact Kathleen Scully at email@example.com, or call 201-825-2552, ext. 334.
