Topeka, KS -- The FSEA·IADD Joint Conference in Milwaukee offers extreme value to conference attendees with two tour workshops on day one of the programming. Slated to take place April 27-29, 2014, in Milwaukee, WI, at the InterContinental Hotel, this year’s conference will “Take in the Best” with tours of Letterhead Press, Inc. and Blanking Systems, Inc.
“These tour workshops present the perfect opportunity for attendees to share best practices with peers in their industry,” said FSEA Executive Director Jeff Peterson. “Both interactive tours provide an opening for in-depth cross-talk amongst attendees. The potential for valuable takeaways at these venues is second to none.” Conference attendees will choose between tours of Letterhead Press, Inc., a national graphic arts leader specializing in fine embossing, foil stamping, holographic application and other related services that enhance product and marketing effectiveness, or Blanking Systems, Inc., providing a complete solution for all blanking requirements, including tool design software, precision blanking tool components, accessories, training and specialized machinery.
The conference will kick off with a supplier trade fair and welcome reception on Sunday evening, April 27th, 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. After the plant tour workshops, day one of the conference will end with 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 and the International Association of Diecutting and Diemaking 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, the FSEA Lifetime Achievement Award recipient will be honored.
