On-Press Demonstrations Add to Innovative Learning Environment
Crystal Lake, Illinois – On-press classroom demonstrations, live equipment running on the show floor and experts from all sectors of the graphics finishing industry are just a few of the reasons Odyssey attendance continues to escalate in record numbers. Slated to take place May 17-19 at the Schaumburg Convention Center in Schaumburg, IL, USA, the 2017 IADD·FSEA Odyssey will unveil exciting new programming in an innovative learning arena like no other venue in North America.
Whether the priority is to improve profits, increase sales or decrease production costs, the Odyssey’s 25 technical and education sessions will help attendees hit their targets. All technical programs are conducted by industry experts – either on-press or in the classroom – each culminating with interactive Q&A sessions to address real-world challenges.
