features seminars and 40 suppliers
The North East Label Manufactur-ers Association (NELMA) will hold Label Manufacturers Expo IV, its fourth annual trade show and networking conference on May 12 at the Bridgewater Marriott in Bridgewater, New Jersey. The event, which will run from 1 to 7 p.m., will feature an exhibit hall with more than 40 major suppliers of products and services to the label printing industry.
Registered attendees will have the opportunity to attend two seminars, delivered by recognized experts, designed to offer instant benefits to any label producing company.
Bill Farquharson, president of Print Tec Network, will deliver a presentation titled “Get Sales Now”, in which he will outline the five keys to effective prospecting. This session will challenge sales managers and professionals to improve the quality and quantity of prospecting calls, creating the motivation and momentum to drive sales activity.
Ron Irwin, founder of REI, LLC (and a frequent contributor to L&NW) will present “Managing, Coaching and Measuring in a Lean Manufacturing Pressroom”. Irwin’s discussion will cover many of the performance improvement tools employed in Lean environments, and will include video of time-lapse images of typical press setups, runs, and cleanup. Participants will gain an understanding of how measurement and a change in management style can break through pressroom productivity inertia, and will return to their companies with a better idea of how to transform their pressroom to reach a new level of productivity and product quality.
The Label Manufacturers Expo IV is open to label converters of all sizes, and is free of charge with advance registration.
NELMA is a 10-year old organization whose events focus on advancing the label manufacturing prowess of its members while providing forums for peer and vendor networking.
