The event will be held at the DoubleTree Chicago North Shore Hotel & Conference Center in Skokie, IL. The theme for the 2014 Symposium is "IML/IMD - Concept to Completion: How IMDA Awards are Won."

Ferrari's presentation is "The Golden Age of Print: How IML/IMD can Prosper." Ferrari had a 32-year career with Procter & Gamble, the last 15 years as global R&D associate director of packaging & print decoration development.

The IMDA Symposium is a unique event offering a fascinating look inside successful IML and IMD projects that produced the winners of the annual IMDA Awards competition. Presentations and interactive workshops will show how these innovative companies made the transition from design concept, through prototyping, to the final award-winning, in-mold decorated product.

The IMDA is an organization of molders, printers, material suppliers and equipment manufacturers committed to the development and growth of in-mold labeling and decorating products, technologies and markets including packaging and durable goods.
