Inkjet and digital label and packaging print: AWA US seminar

The growing applications for digital print in the label and packaging arena are today a focus for both brand owners and the converting industry – and they present both benefits and challenges. Troubleshooting these new pathways, coupled with leading-edge success stories, are the key focus of AWA Conferences & Events’ Ink Jet and Digital Label/Packaging Print Seminar 2013, which takes place in Scottsdale, Arizona, USA, 29-30 January 2013, co-located with IMI’s annual Ink Jet Conference.

Broad-ranging program
The program for this established annual seminar that alternates between Europe and the USA represents an opportunity for brand owners, converters, and industry suppliers to gain an in-depth update on the increasingly-wide base of available options, from digital offset to UV ink jet, thermal transfer, and EB imaging; the pre-press platforms that underlie the print capabilities; substrates, both paper and film; and inks. Speakers include experts from many disciplines – for example, Dr Dene Taylor, President, Specialty Papers & Films Inc; Lou Lovoli, VP, Strategic Partnership & Marketing, Hammer Packaging Corp; Victor Gomez, VP, Narrow Web Products, Durst Image Technology; Tom Erickson, Plant Superintendent, The Label Printers; and Sean Skelly, VP/GM, EFI Jetrion. Leading printing substrate suppliers UPM are the seminar’s Platinum Sponsors.

Leveraging AWA expertise
The global business environment in which the industry is operating will also be examined in a review of the labeling and product decoration markets from AWA Alexander Watson Associates’ President and CEO, Corey M Reardon.

The 2013 Inkjet & Digital Label & Packaging Seminar is now open for registrations, which may be achieved online, where a full seminar prospectus, and details of all AWA Conferences & Events forthcoming events and published market reports, are also available.
