The 2014 FSEA·IADD Joint Conference in Milwaukee offers extreme value to conference attendees with industry-specific programming and plant tours. Slated to take place April 27-29 in Milwaukee, WI, at the InterContinental Hotel, this year’s conference will “Take in the Best.”
The conference will kick off with a supplier trade fair and welcome reception on Sunday evening, April 27, providing attendees with the opportunity to discover what’s new from industry suppliers, network with peers and sample regional fare. On Monday morning, Keynote Speaker Dr. Alan G. Robinson focuses on the importance of encouraging an atmosphere in which ideas for operational improvement and culture changes are generated at every level of an organization. Educational sessions continue with business-impacting sessions on social media, tax law and employment practices. Two tour workshops will wrap up day one of programming at Letterhead Press, Inc. and Blanking Systems, Inc. After the plant tour workshops, conference goers will attend a reception at the Harley-Davidson Museum®, hosted by Sentry Insurance.
Tuesday’s educational sessions will unveil highlights from a new study on high visibility effects in packaging and also will include a panel discussion on digital technologies in print. The conference will conclude with a reception hosted by both the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) and the International Association of Diecutting and Diemaking (IADD) before the groups diverge to separate awards banquets. The FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Banquet will recognize the best finishing work in the industry by announcing the gold, silver and bronze award winners in over 25 categories. Also at the FSEA Gold Leaf Awards Banquet, FSEA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient Robert R. (Bobby) Waitts will be honored in memoriam.
