FTA reveals Infoflex 2019 event theme as it anticipates ninth consecutive sellout

The Flexographic Technical Association (FTA – Bohemia, New York) has announced the official theme of its Infoflex 2019 event – Find Your Fit. Expand Your Brand. The ninth annual event will take place May 6-7 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans, Louisiana. When the tradeshow opens, “the most comprehensive package printing and converting event of 2019” will feature 305 booths. “The show delivers year after year and is heading for its ninth straight sellout,” said Jay Kaible, FTA Director of Membership and Business Development. “Infloflex’s strength is the ability to bring flexo, digital and hybrid technologies under one roof for package printers and converters to evaluate. There’ll be new attractions on the show floor such as Innovation Central, which will focus on topics critical to bridging technologies to meet customer needs.”

More than 1,800 printers and converters will be looking to evaluate new opportunities, diversify applications, and build their bottom line while becoming more versatile in the face of continually changing demand and industry operating conditions.

Infoflex 2019 will be held in conjunction with Forum, which takes place May 5-8 at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel. For more information, including the current floorplan, please visit www.flexography.org/infoflex .
