He explained, “Printers and converters are always looking for new solutions to improve what they can offer to their customers, and the event will highlight specific solutions to help them do that – from digitally produced cups to pharmaceutical leaflets to self-adhesive labels for beer bottles, and much more.”
The two-track Xeikon Cafe Conference will cover a range of topics related to industry trends, best practices and expert views on current and future packaging challenges under the business track, while the technical Conference will focus on practical knowledge sharing of the technical specifications for a wide array of end-use applications, including self-adhesive labelling, paper cups, leaflets, in-mould, folding carton, and heat transfer among others.
