A Digital Future for Flexo?
As digital printing grows from a niche solution into a mainstream option, how will the flexographic industry be affected? How will we, as flexo platemakers, be affected? How do we make sure our industry and our businesses thrive?

Join us as we come together to discuss these and other crucial challenges and opportunities at our 20th Annual Conference!

Not only will we hear an illuminating keynote presentation about digital and flexo in the corrugated market, we�ll enjoy technical sessions from supplier members, we'll network during platemaker/supplier one-on-one sessions, and we'll participate in roundtable discussions on the direction and future of the industry and association. Your voice is paramount in moving us forward, so we hope to see you there.
