Forum’s agenda embraces today’s hottest topics and trends. Content will span the gamut on the critical business intelligence that’s trending now—that’s everything from tackling legal and regulatory issues to meeting the challenge of finding qualified press operators; up to and including ample analysis of disruptive technologies. Flexo’s essentials—inks, anilox rolls, substrates, plates and prepress practices, plus statistical process control--will also receive critical attention throughout the technical program.
The sessions are:
- Flexo: Legals, Markets and Logistics
- The “Press Crew” Crisis: Now Who’s Going to Run My Press?
- Disruptive Technologies: Embrace the Possibilities
- It’s All About Ink!
- Let’s All Get RIPed: Practical Prepress
- Pressroom Pressures
- Not Only How to Use, But How to Choose: Flexo Consumables 101
- Surveying Production Performance: Flexography 102
In addition, the program agenda will offer a complimentary pre-conference session, hosted by the Flexo Quality Consortium (FQC), dubbed #Research!
Program development is being led by Forum Chairs, Paul Teachout, Nilpeter, and Bob Coomes, Plastic Packaging Technologies. Abstract review, speaker selection and session format determination is underway. The ultimate objective: build a stellar educational agenda of what’s trending now for launch in April 2017.
Coinciding with Forum 2017 is the INFO*FLEX Exhibition which celebrates its 35 anniversary in 2017. The event takes place May 1-2 at the Phoenix Convention Ctr..
