New packaging show planned by FTA, GASC
The Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) and the Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC) announced an arrangement to work together to produce a newly formed trade show focused on the package printing and converting sectors, which will debut in 2007.
The biennial event, to be called PackPrint, will be held along with Graph Expo 2007, which runs September 9 to 12 in Chicago.
The GASC believes that even more of the surplus revenue from Graph Expo will be returned to the industry through its trade associations. The FTA says it has teamed with the GASC to produce this event because both organizations share the belief that there is benefit to exhibitors and attendees in mirroring the industry’s convergence between commercial and package printing.
Many equipment manufacturers are currently offering equipment and supplies suitable for use on commercial print jobs and on package printing projects. Both companies involved believe PackPrint will give the manufacturers the opportunity to reach their traditional customers and a wider audience that includes potential buyers that they may not have considered before.
