When people need a reference in the world of coating and converting, I point to AIMCAL! The AIMCAL team carefully curates relevant topics to be presented by top industry authorities to ensure they consistently offer an exceptional base of technical resources. The depth of this information is unmatched by any other organization and is distributed through remote webinars and AIMCAL TV in addition to live conferences, short courses and seminars that reach every edge of the world. AIMCAL is the leader in providing relevant and accessible technical content to advance our industry worldwide.

- Mark Miller | Coating Tech Slot Dies, LLC | www.slotdies.com

AIMCAL is definitely the most advanced technical association in our industry. With global exposure we enjoy cooperation with every major player among converters as well as among suppliers. There are no similar technical associations covering the entire range of technologies in coating, lamination and vacuum metallization. Being a member has given to us a lot of opportunities to learn, to present our innovations and to be exposed to the widest technical database of know-how in our industry.

- Giancarlo Caimmi | Nordmeccanica NA Ltd | www.nordmeccanica.com

AIMCAL is the premier organization for our mid to wide web customers. The R2R conference is always a great event that collects a large amount of my customers and potential customers in one place. As a vendor, the conference is beneficial because the educational offerings attract operations managers and company leadership teams that have purchasing ability paired with operational expertise. I enjoy the networking opportunities. The event doesn't end when the courses & exhibits close. Conversations always follow and friends are made across the industry.
