Constructing the special track of technical sessions for the two-and-a-half-day event is Program Chair Kevin Bourquin of Cyber Graphics (Memphis, TN). Accompanying the educational portion of the conference will be a dedicated tabletop exhibit featuring over 65 companies. Attendees can visit and network with these exhibitors and discover the latest services and technologies in the industry. “I’m really excited to be part of this year’s Fall Conference in Cleveland, the home of the Rock & Roll Hall Fame,” Bourquin added. “I’m looking forward to working with the team to put technical sessions together that continue in the tradition of providing value to the FTA membership, while also helping attendees access information that ensures they’re Taking Care of Business.”

FTA’s Fall Conference 2018 will take place at the Renaissance Cleveland Hotel, a local landmark originally built in 1918 that’s filled with rich history and reflects the unique style of the area. All prospective attendees – including printers and converters, suppliers, prepress providers, consumer product companies, designers, graphics firms, educators and students – should make it a priority to join their peers in Cleveland, said the organization.
