Studies show that conference attendees are looking for more opportunities to network and discuss topics peer to peer. “Today, industry professionals have many ways to gain information from a speaker or author through the web, webinars or email,” said conference Committee Chair Mark Baugh, D.E. Baugh. “What cannot be duplicated on a website is the ability to network and talk to others in your industry face to face. Venues like our FSEA National Conference this year in Orlando provide that platform.”
This year’s conference will include a special open forum on metallic foil decorating. This networking opportunity will discuss the transformation and continued growth of metallic foil decorating for all types of applications. Panelists will provide a perspective from their expertise and experience on what they are seeing in the market today in terms of hot foil, cold foil and new digital foil transfer. Attendees will be encouraged to participate and discuss trends they see as the industry continues to evolve.
In addition, on the second morning of the conference, attendees will have the opportunity to participate in special networking roundtable/peer discussion sessions. Attendees will meet in breakout rooms to discuss challenges or questions pertaining to their own operations in one of four categories: Production Workflow, Health care/Benefits, Information Technology and Sales & Marketing. This format has been proven to provide participants with several “takeaways” that attendees can bring to their operations and implement immediately.
