The IMDPA’s ongoing Strategic Planning team defined a mission for the Association to “Provide a platform to share knowledge and expertise for continuous personal and professional growth.” That is a worthy goal to aspire to and the Conference Planning Committee continues to take on the challenge. This year’s Conference is being held from September 26 -28, 2023 once again at Eaglewood Resort & Spa in Itasca, IL, USA. September 26 will present our Scholarship Golf Outing and Banquet which is popular for networking with industry friends, both old and new. September 27 and 28 will include our General and Breakout Sessions which include presentations of interest to metal decorating and metal packaging personnel alike. Our Conference agenda is all encompassing. It includes presentations on equipment and technology for metal decorating and packaging, best practices, Color Management, Digital Printing, Branding initiatives, Manufacturing topics, Technical Troubleshooting and Materials Sourcing. We also continue to focus on the need for greater Sustainability efforts in the industry and the drive for Bio-Renewables. Our Wednesday General Session will include a Keynote presentation from Gus Reall, CEO of Stolle Machinery Company, a presentation from beverage leader Monster Energy’s GM of Marketing, Allison Erfort and a Sustainability discussion with Colleen Webster, Sustainability Director for Henry Crown /CC Industries. Alex Castrounis, CEO and founder of The Why of AI and professor at Northwestern’s Kellog School of Business will discuss AI for business applications. Our not to be missed presentations were selected from topics obtained as a result of members communicating their requests for seminar presentations in the valuable surveys taken during last year’s Conference. We look forward to being with you in September!
WHY ATTEND? You’ll get maximum educational and networking opportunities with a minimal time commitment. Learn the latest developments and key issues affecting the metal decorating industry. WHAT WILL YOU LEARN? Benefit from information exchange, professional networking and a wide variety of communication opportunities in an informal, relaxed environment. Return to your job with new ideas, methods and best practices that you can apply immediately.

Award acknowledgement.Unlike the Excellence in Quality award program, which is conducted to recognize companies for their decorating and manufacturing skills, this award recognizes individuals for their level of competency in the manufacturing sector. This award was created to honor the manufacturing personnel and is similar to the Decorators of the Year award which will still be awarded for honoring the decorating sector skills. We will now have 2 individual category awards. This award program allows companies to acknowledge and nominate their metal packager(s) so they may be recognized by their peers for their skill and ability. This year’s award will also be presented during the IMDPA Conference during our Wednesday’s Awards Luncheon being held on September 27th. ANNOUNCING OUR NEW METAL PACKAGER OF THE YEAR AWARD!
