including: publications, associations, suppliers/manufacturers, as well as consultants who have their pulse on various industry sectors on a daily basis.
The first meeting of the board took place on January 14, 2014, and the exchange of ideas, review of the current marketplace and the discussion on what the future brings has formed the framework of the 2014 Educational Program. “The goal is to complement this information with an exhibit floor that offers that same expansive breadth of machinery, equipment and solutions,” says Leo
Nadolske, CPP Expo president.
Advisory Board Members include:
Derek Bradshaw, Vice President, Aztech Converting Systems
Michael D’Angelo, Vice President – Business Unit Web Fed, Bobst North America
Mickey Fortune, Senior Director, RadTech – The Association for UV & EB Technology
Scott Hibbs, Executive Vice President at TRESU Americas

The conclusion of the board is that there will be more offered in Chicago than any other event in North America. Converters can attend CPP EXPO to see the latest technology and equipment available to them for their operation – and also get a glimpse of their future with prepress and digital printing solutions that are fast-becoming a part of the package printing process.
Chris Price, VP of GASC comments, "Conversely, commercial printers looking to take the leap into package printing need to go no further. With CPP Expo co-located at McCormick – they can expand their opportunity – which is what our event is all about!”
The co-location with GASC/Graph Expo, the launch of the CPP Expo Advisory Board and the continued development of partnerships in select and specific industry segments will continue to broaden CPP EXPO’s knowledge-base and reach. The next Advisory Board meeting is planned for April.
