Well the time has come. Leaves cover the greens up north, soon snow and sleet will be falling in Boston, but the warm Florida sun will bring everyone together at the IFAI 2013 in Orlando. Returning to the 2010 site, this year’s show will hardly be the same and expects to bring many new opportunities with the addition of the Advanced Textiles Conference and the 2013 SGAI Expo.
The Specialty Graphics Imaging Association will showcase new technologies in digital imaging, screen printing, outdoor advertising, fleet and vehicle graphics and fine art to name a few. With its’ massive 219,000 sq ft expo floor attendees will see more exhibitors than ever before while having the option to educational seminars covering new printing applications, business strategies and marketing ideas to make your business successful.
This years IFAI Specialty Fabrics Expo will bring thousands of attendees into over 400 exhibiting booths and is sure to generate an abundance of networking opportunities promoting limitless business potential! The demand for advanced textile applications was answered by the IFAI with the addition of the Advanced Textiles Conference and Trade Show. This event will display advances in products affecting aerospace, engineering, geosynthetics, medical, safety as well as military markets. Here at MMI Textiles we are very excited to show advanced products in all of these market places. Be sure to stop by our booth 5604 in the Advanced Textile section and see what we have in store.
Looking for some extracurricular activities with all of the networking benefits of a work day? Be sure to sign up for one or as many of these activities as possible! The IFF Golf Tournament will be Tuesday October, 22 at noon. It will be played at Marriot’s Grande Pines Golf Club which is one of the finer courses around. If you’re not much of a golfer you can still get out and enjoy the weather at the IFF Sunset Gator Tour starting a 3PM. You will tour the Florida Everglades with refreshments at sunset while taking in the sights and sounds of the native wildlife. In 2012, IFF handed out 10 scholarships and these two events are sure to make 2013 even more successful with your help. Support this great cause and meet everyone in the industry along the way. MMI Textiles will be attending both events and we hope to see you there! Have a great show!
