Sponsor Testimonials

Hear what our sponsors had to say about their experience at the Digital Packaging Summit...

"Domino was excited to not only participate in the Digital Packaging Summit, but to be a Keynote Sponsor of this great event. The Digital Packaging Summit brings together the suppliers and converters in a unique setting, with the sharing of customer success stories, 1:1 meetings, and social engagements that provide great opportunities for information exchange and learning.  Domino is not the biggest, nor the oldest, but we believe we are the best. And this event provides the platform and opportunity to educate converters and brand owners who are seeking to learn more about digital printing, and looking for the right solution for their business."

David Ellen, President, Domino Digital Printing - North America

"The Digital Packaging Summit was an excellent event for HP and we got a lot of value from our sponsorship. The jam-packed event offered opportunities to learn from, and educate, industry executives. The keynote sessions, the one-on-one meetings and the breakout groups all were worthwhile. There were numerous networking opportunities, and the event was very well run. The HP team was extremely excited about winning the case study award for the folding carton segment and I am certainly looking forward to attending again next year."

Brian Cleary, Category Manager, Indigo Label Solutions, HP

"In an industry that is continuously evolving with new technologies and challenges, the Digital Packaging Summit fostered focused conversations between business leaders in a relaxing environment. The enthusiasm and passion for the industry was encouraging as converters were looking for new and innovative ways to optimize their operations, and suppliers responded with the latest solutions. Mark Andy was honored to receive the award for 'Best Case Study - Labels Segment' for our production-level Digital Series hybrid presentation, supporting our commitment to providing the right solution to converters to maximize profits and productivity."

Steve Schulte, VP, Sales & Marketing, Mark Andy Inc.

"The Digital Packaging Summit organizers did a magnificent job in bringing the most successful, strategic, and progressive executives to the Summit. Landa is honored to have been chosen a 'Company to Watch' by this important group. Their confirmation of the significance of Benny Landa's revolutionary technology, Nanography, is the best recognition we could hope for."

Nachum Korman, VP and GM, North America, Landa Digital Printing

Stan Usry, Strategic Accounts Mgr, EFI

Donald Allred, VP Packaging, Memjet

There is plenty of opportunities to network but the 1:1 meetings are definitely the icing on the cake. A thousands thanks to Dave, Brian, Lisa, Lynne, Phil and all the others for making this happen again!"

Ulrich Kretzschmar, Business Development, RotoMetrics

"The totale package was very interesting but for sure the networking and the one to one meetings were very interesting. Off course an advantage that the audience are interested in digital printing."

Gert Geens, Business Development Folding Carton, Xeikon

"This year was our first time sponsoring this event and I will have to say it was better than expected. I have done many traditional trade shows and this format gave us the ability to interact directly with the decision makers in a much more relaxed environment. We plan on returning next year."

Brett Stow, VP, Absolute Printing Equipment

"This method of Interaction with Customer is by far more economical and productive than any other traditional Print Industry event."

James Martin, President, MBO America

"It's hard to say at this point to measure value.  I do want to say that this was the best interactive environment of any conference I have attended.  It was great how the vendors and attendees were involved together in all of the activities, the format really gave me an opportunity to meet everybody on both a business and personal level."

Doug Sherwood, National Sales Manager, Rollem Corporation International

"This format provided an opportunity for us to listen to what customer decision makers are looking for in their next equipment purchases.  We could also bounce new equipment concepts off decision makers and get immediate feedback."

Chuck Raymond, President, Prototype and Production Systems Inc.

"The Digital Packaging Summit allows a level of interaction between vendors and leading packaging companies that is unique - it's not a sales pitch or a trade show demo, but really a true partnership to advance the state of the industry."

Mike Rottenborn, President & CEO, Hybrid Software Inc.

"By answering questions on the pre-meeting survey, a manufacturer can reasonably determine if this prospect has a need for their product or service. Then when you meet with these pre-qualified prospects you do not waste their time or your time. This is a VERY productive conference for both customers and manufacturers."

Chuck Burke, Sales Director, Epic Products International

"Created a specific forum for the networking that is a more difficult process at other events."

Larry D'Amcio, Director of Sales NA, Durst

"Really found valuable the formula of 1 to 1 meetings, which allows a proper level of attention and focusing, supported by an efficient agenda management and communication."

Claudio Semenza, OMET AMERICAS

"I really appreciated the Digital Packaging Summit's varied format and collaborative environment.  It allowed for business development opportunities, hearing future industry directions, and networking by executive attendees and sponsors in different and meaningful ways."

Linnea Wolken, Global Manager, Software Strategy & Alliances, RICOH

"Since its inception, MGI has found the Digital Packaging Summit to be the premier business development conference in the industry. The forum is elegant, the event management is superb and the educational sessions are both valuable and insightful. Most importantly, the organizers hit a home run with facilitating direct, meaningful conversations between solution providers and top executive decision-makers at some of the most important package printers and label converters in the United States. Our sponsorship experience has been both enjoyable and successful in generating new business opportunities as a result of our participation."

Jack Noonan, Marketing Coordinator, MGI USA

"I've experienced many different types of printing industry events over the last 30 years and the format, content and networking at the recent Digital Packaging Summit seriously raises the bar vs. other venues."

Gary Bernier, Strategic Business & Brand Development Manager, Labels & Packaging, HP Indigo and InkJet Press Solutions

"The Digital Packaging Summit was an outstanding and highly beneficial event providing a refreshing, unbiased look at how digital print technologies will impact us all. The exposure to high level converting executives, case studies and one-on-one meetings is a unique event format that truly over-delivered. A great outcome for all who attended."

Jeff Feltz, Director of Business Development, Mark Andy Inc.

"Today's communication is all about multi-channel, the Digital Packaging Summit is the role model in 'eventing', interacting with customers on 3 different levels - through general sessions - case studies and one2one meetings."

Patrick Van Baelen, Vice President WW Marketing, Xeikon America Inc.

"The event is well worth the time as it is short and to the point in an intimate setting and 1/1 meetings with decision makers."

Gina Testa, Vice President of Marketing, Xerox

"This event is more structured to C and executive level attendees who want to hear more about the business case for digital rather than manufacturing, an exceptional opportunity to meet with SR level decision managers."

Matt Bennett, Director - Packaging, HP

"The Digital Packaging Summit is a great way to get in touch with business owners and decision makers who have a need and a want to grow their business by getting into or expanding their digital portfolio."

Marc Welch, Director of Strategic Accounts, GMG Americas

"This was a great investment for our company that delivered immediate return and exceeded our expectations.  We were able to network with individuals unlike traditional trade shows. "

Cindy S. Fruth, Industry Manager, Ashland

"After presenting the case studies having an attendee come up and say it was one of the best presentations he saw meant we did our job."

Sean Cummins, L350 Product Manager, Screen Americas

"This event provides an ultra-efficient forum to develop sales prospects.  One can achieve the same results from this event as can be achieved in 12 or more direct selling calls and this saves you from inefficiencies of travel to multiple sites."

Raymond W Dickinson, V.P. Marketing & Business Development, Mark Andy

"Having access to industry leading decision makers for 2+ days is the real deal of the event. There are plenty of opportunities to interact not just during the ""official"" hours. You're getting access to key industry data and insights in a format you don't get anywhere else. The 1 on 1 meetings are the icing on a first class event providing the opportunity to share thoughts, ideas and possible solutions with decision makers."

Ulrich Kretzschmar, Business Development, RotoMetrics

"I have chaired and spoken at many conferences on this topic and while most were good events they were one dimensional with information coming down from the podium or 'snip-its' from tabletops during breaks. This is a totally different kind of event that immerses the attendees and sponsors in a bi-directional dialog that benefits both. The information sharing and 'roll your sleeves up' interaction that occurs leaves everyone with extensive "to do" lists. The 'deep dive' format and informational exchange is just what the fast changing package printing industry needs right now."

Kevin Karstedt, CEO at Karstedt Partners LLC and chair of the 2015 Digital Packaging Summit
