DecTec and In-Mold conferences set for November

October 10, 2011

AWA's Chicago event covers narrow web product decoration, and its Arizona conference focuses on in-mold labels.

The conference division of AWA Alexander Watson Associates has scheduled two events targeting label converters during mid-November. The first is the DecTec Narrow Web & Product Decoration Printing and Imaging Conference 2011, followed by the International In-Mold Labeling & Decorating Conference.

The DecTec Narrow Web & Product Decoration Printing and Imaging Conference 2011, taking place November 14-15 in the Hyatt Rosemont Hotel in Chicago, is designed for all those associated with label and product decoration, including pressure sensitive labeling, sleeving technologies, in-mold labeling, glue applied labeling, and direct printing formats for labeling, product decoration and packaging. The event is sponsored by AWA Alexander Watson & Associates.

DecTec brings together experts in their respective disciplines and addresses the key issues and opportunities for narrow web printing and imaging across the labeling, product decoration and packaging value chain. The conference offers a comprehensive program, complemented by networking opportunities and a two-day exhibition. The program includes a digital printing panel discussion. In addition, the event includes sessions on market and materials developments, printing and converting technologies, and sustainability and recycling.

IMLCON & IMDCON 2011, the International In-Mold Labeling & Decorating Conference & Exhibition, is the only conference totally dedicated to in-mold labeling and in-mold decoration, markets and technologies. The 19th edition of this event takes place November 16-18 at the Hyatt Regency Phoenix, in Arizona.

The program is designed to meet the interests of material suppliers, machinery manufacturers, converters and brand owners. Presentations will cover an overview of the global IML/IMD Market, the rise of IML in North America, and mergers and acquisitions in the packaging industry. The event provides networking opportunities during cocktail receptions and breakfast meetings. In addition, the conference includes a full two-day exhibition. The In-Mold Decoration Association has chosen the event to have its annual meeting and present the IMDA awards.

The program includes two panel discussions: “How to Encourage the Use of IML” and “Recycling & Sustainability”. Kraft Foods and The Dial Corporation participate in the latter discussion.

Those interested in attending either event can email conferences@awa-bv.com, or call +31-20-676-2069 (the Netherlands) for more information. Details are available at AWA Conferences & Events’ website.
