Both the converting industry and Green Bay Packers have big reputations in Wisconsin and nearby parts of the upper Midwest, so it’s fitting that Converting Influence has chosen Lambeau Field Atrium in Green Bay, Wis., to host its annual expo on March 5.

“With the enthusiastic feedback we received last year, we have planned for almost a third more exhibit space and expect strong increased traffic this year,” says Jack Mason, Converting Influence advisory board member. Converters Expo 2008, the inaugural edition of the annual event, attracted 60 displays and over 300 attendees.

Currently, 75 displays are planned and, in addition to providing unique views of the celebrated sports venue, the expo will continue to provide an opportunity for exhibitors to tell their stories from the industry’s growing regional and national fronts in terms of the latest converting and allied business properties.

The day-long event is being complemented by several day-before factory tours concluded with a networking evening to draw in product developers, marketers, buyers and outsourcers looking to connect with exhibiting converters and associated companies.

Converting Influence provides news and industry information through meetings, online listings and emails regarding paper, film and nonwoven materials plus information on processes like rewinding and sheeting, folding, packaging, coating and laminating, flexo printing, converting equipment and related services.
