ICEC USA wraps 6th Event Edition, Announces 2023 DatesNovember 17, 2021
Following a great week in Orlando, FL, the International Converting Exhibition & Conference USA (ICEC USA) came to a close at the Orange County Convention Center, October 19-21, 2021. ICEC USA returned to Orlando for an in-person show based on the vocalized need from industry stakeholders to unite converting industry professionals and exhibitors to do business in a safe and comfortable environment.
Many converting professionals, including exhibitors, buyers, and media from around the continent, gathered in Orlando for three days of face-to-face business appointments, product displays, keynotes, and education. The Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators (AIMCAL) Roll2Roll Conference and Flexible Packaging Division’s SPE FlexPackCon® kicked off on October 17 with AIMCAL Fundamentals, followed by Technical Sessions and valuable networking events throughout the week.
Though international participation was hindered due to travel bans, many exhibitors and attendees found the show provided high value. Attendees experienced hands-on demonstrations, interactive education sessions, and connected with their peers.
30 percent of exhibitors in 2021 have already committed for 2023 with plans to return with the same size booth space or larger. “This show is our premier opportunity to meet our customers. Every show that we do, we sell machinery because of someone that we’ve made contact with at ICEC USA,” stated Bob Pasquale, president of New Era Converting Machinery.
ICEC USA will return to the Orange County Convention Center (OCCC – West Building) in Orlando, FL, in just fifteen short months—February 14 – 16, 2023—for its seventh edition of the event. “We are pleased to return to Orlando for a bigger and better event in 2023,” said ICEC USA Event Director Bob Chiricosta. “While the pandemic has been challenging for many companies, we are thrilled to see that many of the larger exhibiting companies have committed to 2023 participation. Our exhibitors and attendees can look forward to a strong and valuable business event at ICEC USA in 2023.”
