Digital Packaging Summit 2018 to take place from November 5 - 7, 2018

After a successful 2017 event for both attendees and sponsors, the Digital Packaging Summit 2018 will take place from November 5 - 7, 2018 once again at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

The Digital Packaging Summit 2017 that received excellent reviews from both attendees and sponsors 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 including Labels, Folding Cartons, Corrugated and Flexible Packaging.

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, 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 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.
