Digital Packaging Summit Event Summary

DPS Logo _FINAL(300x)

The Digital Packaging Summit 2016 will take place October 31 - November 2, 2016 once again at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.  The 2015 event was a success for both attendees and sponsors. Check out this video for some highlights.

The Digital Packaging Summit 2015 received excellent reviews from both attendees and our sponsors. Digital Packaging Summit is unlike other events. It is an invitation-only, hosted summit designed for senior managers and business executives who want to understand how current and future digital production printing technology, software and solutions will impact their business and investment decisions.   This summit offers strategic level insights into what printing and converting industry leaders should do to improve and optimize their business.

The Digital Packaging Summit provides a unique and valuable experience for attendees to acquire this knowledge.  Pre-qualified attendees will meet and learn from the "who's who" in the label and package space as well as users who have or plan to install digital solutions.  They will discuss the successes and challenges encountered when implementing this new technology.  This unique format provides sponsors with 1:1 meetings with executives intimately involved with strategy and purchasing across major industry segments:

  • Labels
  • Folding Cartons

Attendees will have access to THE industry leaders and experts covering THE topics they need to hear about -  all to help them make better decisions when looking at solutions in these major segments as well as segments such as Corrugated and Flexible Packaging.  

The Impact of Technology

The Digital Packaging Summit focuses on how widespread changes taking place today are redefining the future of label and package printing. In labels and folding cartons, run lengths are shrinking even as overall volumes are growing. Yet, even as shorter runs become increasingly commonplace, the workflows and economics of traditional offset and flexographic printing severely limit converters' productivity and profitability. Inkjet and electrophotographic presses offer the versatility, print quality, operational economics, greater automation, reduced waste, and substrate flexibility to make short-and medium-length runs profitable, forward-looking offerings for label and folding carton converters seeking to grow their businesses.

Similarly, demand for short runs is also impacting converters of corrugated substrates, especially retail display and point-of-purchase materials. Large format flatbed inkjet presses, paired with fast, computer-driven cutters and trimmers are meeting the growing demand for full-color, short-run, fast-turnaround jobs on cardboard and synthetic corrugated substrates. Short-run capabilities, especially for customized displays, are expected by brand owners.

Agenda Highlights

The Digital Packaging Summit puts users and suppliers together to show how digital printing technology-in labels, folding cartons and corrugated materials-can deliver a bottom-line difference. With compelling presentations by leading analysts and industry experts, in-depth real-world case studies in intimate boardroom settings, and focused one-on-one meetings, the Digital Packaging Summit is a unique venue that defines the agile, responsive and profitable future of label and package printing.


Hot topics to be covered include:

Economics & Implementation Challenges

Understanding the cost and implementation are key to successfully integrating digital printing into a packaging operation. How do the real costs of digital printing compare with conventional analog technologies? Where is the best fit? What are the operational issues?

Process & Market Transformation

The Summit will examine how digital answers the need for shorter runs, faster turnarounds, and new levels of customization and personalization. How well do digital solutions work today? How will these systems transform the market and how will brand owners select a converter based on printing technology?

Which solution is right for you?

There are multiple digital technologies for package printing. The Summit will review the various options and provide insight on how to select those that are best for different businesses.

More Than Print Technology

Implementing a digital solution is much more than print technology. The Summit will cover the right software, supplies, feeding and finishing solutions required to make your business successful.

Future Markets

How big could digital packaging become? What business conditions would result in it having a larger market share? What improvements are necessary and when might they occur? How can customers ensure they have an optimal fit with analog packaging solutions?

The Power of Digital Print in Packaging

Digital printing enables you to drive profit through extreme relevancy at the point of the moment of truth. Sessions and panels will explore the real value proposition of digital print in packaging at the point of purchase, displays, etc.
