IFAI, SGIA Expos To Colocate In 2013
The Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI), Roseville, Minn., and Specialty Graphic
Imaging Association (SGIA), Fairfax, Va., plan to colocate their respective shows — IFAI Expo and
SGIA Expo — in Orlando, Fla., in 2013. The Orange County Convention Center will host the events
Oct. 23-25, 2013. Participation is expected to total some 900 exhibitors and 25,000 visitors.
Organizers report the two shows — IFAI Expo for the specialty fabrics industry and SGIA Expo for current specialty imaging technologies — complement each other, especially for people involved with printing graphics on flexible materials.
“This colocation makes strategic sense,” said Stephen M. Warner, president and CEO, IFAI. “ One location produces incredible value for both the visitors and the exhibitors. Bringing these two leading events together provides a unique occasion for participants in all levels of the value chain to network and share industry knowledge.”
