Odyssey Returns to Schaumburg in May 2017
The Foil & Specialty Effects Association
2017 IADDFSEA Odyssey
- May 17-19, 2017
- Schaumburg, Illinois
The IADDFSEA Odyssey will return to Schaumburg, Illinois, May 17-19, 2017. In 2015, the largest Odyssey in the history of the event was held, with 163 exhibitors, 30 running machines in the hall and a record number of attendees at the Renaissance Schaumburg Convention Center and Hotel. Just 25 minutes from downtown Chicago, this 148,000 square foot facility offers 500 convenient hotel rooms connected to the Convention Center.
The multiple reasons for record attendance in 2015 hold true for the 2017 event, and Odyssey organizers are expecting excellent attendance yet again. Outstanding exhibitor participation drove excitement from the number of diemakers, diecutters and print finishers within a day’s drive of the event, and the convention center’s easy access from O’Hare International Airport assists in attracting international attendees and making the event more global. Education once again is a focus of the programming committee, with a continued focus on what’s new in the world of diecutting, diemaking, folding cartons, foil and engraving, while also expanding content to include more information for those in corrugated, plastics, foams, gaskets and more. Many of the educational programs will take place in the Techshop™, offering attendees a one-of-a-kind experience with live, operating equipment available for informative programs and hands-on teaching.
More information will be coming soon, but mark the calendar now for the 2017 IADDFSEA Odyssey, May 17-19, 2017, Schaumburg, Illinois. Details will be released through media outlets and at www.odysseyexpo.org.
