Mark your calendars for the 2019 ICMA Card Manufacturing & Personalization EXPO, with exhibits, education and networking, which will take place March 31-April 3, 2019, at the Omni Orlando Resort at ChampionsGate in Florida.
Grow professionally and get the essential education you need to excel in the global card industry by attending the next EXPO. There will be an abundance of networking opportunities, including the chance to meet top card suppliers, personalizers and manufacturers in the exhibit hall. ICMA EXPO exhibitors are global industry leaders who manufacture and supply materials and services to the card manufacturing and personalization industry.
The 2019 EXPO will again feature a comprehensive conference program and dedicated exhibition hours, and a number of ICMA members will share their expertise by delivering a presentation at the event.
“With the future in mind, our card industry members will again have diverse, contemporary, and unique opportunities to explore in Orlando,” said Jeffrey Barnhart, executive director and founder of ICMA.
There’s a lot of competition in the card manufacturing and personalization/fulfillment industry, but the ACE-M, ACE-P and ACE-A designations will set you apart. It’s awarded to people with a broad and detailed knowledge of the industry who successfully complete a rigorous exam. As the demand for experts grows, continual training and expertise are crucial for individuals – and companies – to stay ahead of the pack.
Here’s what some of our members have to say about their experience at the ICMA EXPO:
I come to these events because the education you get from the speakers is excellent. Visiting the exhibitors you see the latest technology and this year we have a large number of exhibitors including a lot of equipment, which is really interesting to see.
I gain a lot of knowledge by working with vendors [at ICMA’s events] as well as the unique opportunity to talk with a lot of the other manufacturers, so we are very friendly competitors I would say. Everyone who goes to the trouble of setting up a booth, I want to know what they are doing and why they are here.
It’s nice to speak to so many who have the same common interest. I’ve learned a lot about cards, lots of different aspects I never knew about.
