“Be the BEST” at the 2017 IADD•FSEA Odyssey, May 17-19, 2017, at the Schaumburg Convention Center, Schaumburg, Illinois. The Odyssey is the premier event for diecutting/diemaking, foil stamping and other specialty effects. At no other event will attendees find such a targeted group of industry-specific suppliers and peers under one roof.

According to Cindy Crouse, IADD CEO, “The site for the 2017 Odyssey has been strategically located in the Chicagoland area for easy drive-in and airport accessibility. The Schaumburg Convention Center and stunning Renaissance Hotel (connected) are state-of-the-art facilities, just minutes from O’Hare Airport and offering free parking to all. With direct routes from a number of nearby states, a wide array of top quality restaurants in the area and close proximity to exciting Chicago activities, Schaumburg is the perfect destination for the 2017 Odyssey for attendees and exhibitors alike!”

The 2017 IADD•FSEA Odyssey is a unique trade exposition featuring hands-on educational programs targeted specifically to the fields of diecutting/diemaking, print finishing, folding carton, corrugated and specialty markets. Attendees will experience a world-class program of up-to-date equipment and the latest technologies. The Odyssey's one-of-a-kind Techshop™ environment simulates a working production shop floor where technical sessions on diecutting, diemaking, folding/gluing, foil stamping/embossing and other print finishing processes are taught on-press throughout the three-day event. Cutting-edge video equipment and live-action feeds allow attendees to see all action on the presses up close and in real time.
