March 5, 2013 – In response to overwhelming demand, Flexographic Technical Association (FTA) has added 15 additional booths to the previously sold-out INFO*FLEX show floor. INFO*FLEX, the industry’s most comprehensive networking event for the packaging, printing and converting industries, will take place April 29-30, 2013 at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, CA. The exhibition will run from 1:30pm – 5:30pm on both days.

Jay Kaible, director of business development and membership said, “As we stated in our promotions, the printers/converters are going to be there in full force. We’re not kidding! As it stands now, registrations for FTA’s Annual Forum and the INFO*FLEX Exhibition are up more than 100 percent from this time last year.” He added, “If you want to get in front of your customers, there’s no better place to do so than at the most comprehensive event for the packaging, printing and converting industry...only 15 booths available so reserve your booth today.”

Currently, more than 200 of the industry’s leading suppliers and manufacturers will be showcasing their products and technologies to the 1,600+ crowd. Attendees will view firsthand demonstrations of technologies that are engineered to enhance productivity, support profitability, promote sustainability, and improve quality. Additionally, immediately following the close of INFO*FLEX on Monday, a Social Networking Reception is planned. Attendees will converge on the outside terrace of the San Diego Convention Center Sails Pavilion, where they will be treated to beautiful views of the San Diego Bay. There, attendees can look forward to additional networking opportunities, cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, a lively blues band, surprise giveaways and guest entertainers.
