The Association for PRINT Technologies (APTech) and the Foil & Specialty Effects Association (FSEA) are collaborating on a new in-person event, Amplify, an exhibition and educational program spotlighting the print finishing value chain. The immersive three-day experience will take place June 14-16, 2022, at the Minneapolis Convention Center.
Both associations welcome print and packaging designers, commercial printers, print finishers, binders, mailers, and creatives to connect with the equipment manufacturers and suppliers to those industries. From the exhibit hall to the educational program and beyond, attendees will network with all the key players in the finishing cycle, learn best practices, discover emerging technologies, and hear real-world success stories.
Amplify will feature an interactive learning experience through technology demonstrations, product spotlights, and classroom educational experiences. Exhibitors and educational programs will cover processes that include metallic decorating techniques, folding and gluing, UV coating, laminates, laser cutting, perfect and mechanical binding, folding, and direct mail machinery and software.
Jeff Peterson, Executive Director of FSEA, commented, “After more than a year of virtual interactions and events, we’re proud to announce the launch of Amplify. This will undoubtedly become ‘the’ event for those involved with finishing, embellishments, and other post-press processes. Amplify will connect and inspire all — from design to the final finished product.”
