The Digital Packaging Summit 2016 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:
- 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
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, folding cartons, and corrugated, 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

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.
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.
