InfoFlex 2015 Nashville sees 10p/c increase from last year


InfoFlex 2015, held May 4-5 at the Music City Center in Nashville TN, drew about 2,000 attendees, an attendance increase of 10 percent compared to previous events. The event also reported a record 280 booth spaces , which helped increase the show floor of the 2015 event by some 10 percent.

Exhibitor Gavin Rittmeyer, Martin Automatic, remarked, “INFO*FLEX is the premier event in North America for converting. Narrow web is here. Wide web is here. I even get to see paper plate customers. While I might like to be a flexo purist at heart, I appreciate the presence of the complementary technologies—particularly the digital presses and finishing systems. It’s great to see it all on a single floor!”

In addition to the intensive networking, the interactive demonstrations of new technologies, and the product comparisons, the sprawling show floor featured:

  • 32 new exhibiting companies for 2015
  • 37 press manufacturers – traditional flexo, hybrid and digital
  • 80% exhibitors that develop products/services for the wide web industry
  • 75% exhibitors that cater to the narrow web and tag & label marketplace
  • 40 companies address the latest in in-line converting
  • 50 prepress companies featured a slew of new product developments
  • A Solutions Theater that drew standing room-only crowds

The Flexographic Technical Association’s (FTA) annual forum, held in conjunction with InfoFlex from May 3-6 at the Omni Nashville, also drew record crowds. InfoFlex 2016 is set for March 7-8, 2016 at the Fort Worth Convention Center in Fort Worth, Tex.
