The home of my beloved Packers (Lambeau Stadium), in what may soon get another injection of Titletown mania (Green Bay, WI), will serve as the site once again for Converters Expo. Set for March 3 at the Lambeau Atrium, the annual event is organized by Converting Influence and is growing again for this fourth occasion.
“This expo, in the heart of the nation’s top converting region continues to gain momentum,” says Susan Stansbury, Converting Influence director. “We will sell out our space with 100 manufacturer and allied-services displays, and we are also adding more ‘Skybox Seminars’ this year.”
Stop by Booth C208 and visit CONVERTING QUARTERLY. Pick up a copy of our premiere issue with a market focus on Printed Electronics & Photovoltaics. We’re an official 2011 event Media Sponsor.
Converters Expo features converter-manufacturers who add value to mill rolls of paper, film, nonwovens fabrics and other roll goods. “These exhibitors make products ranging from medical disposables to tissue products, printed specialties, wet wipes, labels, tapes and much more,” says Bob Saari of Contract Converting. “Coming in from around the nation to attend are product developers, buyers, engineers and executives looking for contract-manufacturing support.”
In addition to manufacturer exhibitors are companies in converting machinery, automation, equipment, logistics, packaging and other industry services. The two-day converting-industry program includes:
