Some of the companies who will be exhibiting at the biennial Show for the first time include: Flint Group Flexographic Products, TGW International, H.B. Fuller and Flexo Wash. Bob Chiricosta, ICE USA Show Director, says, "We are especially excited that so many exhibitors are bringing and running equipment."
Chiricosta adds attendee registration is also well ahead of ICE USA 2011.
Keynote presentations, which will take place throughout the week, are free for all ICE USA attendees. Among the scheduled speakers is Paul Gaster, director flexible packaging at PCI Films Consulting Ltd, who will present "Opportunities and Threats in the Global Flexible Packaging Market." Thomas Blaige, chairman and CEO, Blaige & Company, will discuss "Merger and Acquisition Trends in the Converting Industry."
Ask the Experts
ICE USA is also bringing back its “Ask the Experts” program, which includes input from five leading industry experts who are available for private consulting sessions during the show.
“The Ask the Experts sessions were one of the most popular features of the 2011 show,” Chiricosta says. “We had several attendees tell us that they discovered very valuable solutions to their challenges during these sessions.”
This year’s Ask the Experts panel is comprised of Edwin Cohen (web coating), Kelly Robinson (static), Dave Roisum (web handling and converting), Dave Rumson (slitting and rewinding), and Vincent DiTrolio (flexographic printing).
