FORUM is a technical conference built around the topics most important to flexographers.
For more than six decades, FORUM has been an annual meeting of the minds.
It’s where flexography’s technical experts, foremost authorities and thought leaders come to share knowledge and educate their peers at all levels.
FORUM provides an unrivaled learning opportunity that yields benefits for employees and their employers for years to come.
“As a CPC, we go to FORUM to learn about the advancements of screening/plates/inks so we can see if our print vendors are keeping up with the times and to encourage them to move into some of these new technologies.”
“FORUM really checks all the boxes!”
“I found FORUM to be one of the best events that I have ever attended in my many years in the print industry. Informative, concise and educational.”
“From my perspective working at both ends—printer and brand representative—I find FORUM invaluable in covering all aspects of the flexographic world.”
