This seminar is supported by leading industry partners – Accraply, HYBRID Software, Klockner Pentaplast, ThermoFlexX, Creative Edge Software, and Flint Group Narrow Web.

President and CEO of Alexander Watson & Associates, Corey Reardon, commented: “AWA events typically rotate locations year to year; however, the popularity of this seminar and the superb partnership with Flint Group Narrow Web and Accraply has worked so well, that we return to Minnesota for a fourth consecutive annual event. With the significant support and participation of leading international companies in this growing technology arena, we have been able to create a very special opportunity for anyone who needs to gain a sound education in heat shrink sleeves.”
