Bryan Ekus, President and Executive Producer of Making Vinyl Detroit 2017 and Larry Jaffee, Conference Director have put together an outstanding two day Making Vinylconference comprehensively covering every aspect of modern vinyl production. It would have been a shame had weak industry participation marred the event. Fortunately, the worldwide industry responded to the call producing hundreds of attendees from throughout the industry, including pressing plant owners and executives including RTI's Don MacInnis, Rainbo's Steve Sheldon, Optimal Media's Peter Runge, MPO's Alban Pingoet and GZ Vinyl's MIchal Sterba, who were asked to discuss why they never gave up on vinyl in a panel discussion run by Third Man Pressing's Randy Cholewa.
