The conference will be chaired by Bruce Riddell, vice president of technical development for Spectrum Label Corporation in Hayward, CA; and co-chaired by Mike Buystedt, technical director of Akzo Nobel Inks; and Rick Mix, technical director of the Flexographic Technical Association.
The registration fee for the three-day conference is $395 for TLMI and FTA members ($545 for non-members), prior to August 1; and $450 for TLMI and FTA members ($645 for non-members), after August 1.
