Digital Packaging Summit: A Can’t Miss Event for Those Serious About Digital Printing
Now in its fourth year, the Digital Packaging Summit has proven to be a highly valuable event for both converter attendees and supplier sponsors. Through its unique blend of market education, product awareness, networking case studies and business strategies, numerous package printers have benefited from the event, receiving a wealth of knowledge to guide their digital strategy.
"We have been talking about getting into digital printing, but have not yet made the move so this summit came at the right time, said Rick Peters, VP & General Manager of The Shelby Company. “It provided a wealth of information from various view points in a short amount of time. The schedule was well thought out and proved to be not only productive but also a lot of fun."
The Digital Packaging Summit 2018 will be held from Nov. 5-7, returning to the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. 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 strategy and investment decisions.
The hosted summit provides a unique and valuable experience for attendees to acquire knowledge through a blended conference program led by Kevin Karstedt, CEO, Karstedt Partners, LLC, Marco Boer, Vice President, IT Strategies and a team of key advisory board members. Attendees meet and learn from the "who's who" in the label and packaging markets, as well as their peers and users who have installed or plan to install digital solutions.
For sponsors, the Digital Packaging Summit provides opportunities for in-depth conversations with leading printers and converters, setting the stage to develop new business relationships.
“The Digital Packaging Summit allows a level of interaction between vendors and leading packaging companies that is unique,” said Mike Rottenborn, President & CEO of Hybrid Software. “It's not a sales pitch or a trade show demo, but really a true partnership to advance the state of the industry.”
Printing and converting executives who attend learn from top industry experts and their peers through keynote sessions, workshops, real-life end user panels, and segment-focused breakout sessions. They also have the opportunity to meet one-on-one with, and listen to focused case studies from leading solution providers and their customers, and build long-lasting relationships through numerous networking receptions and meals, among other activities.
"The combination of market analysis, case studies and networking was exactly the combination of inputs we needed to help us in our first digital purchase," stated Kelly Weaver, CFO, Printech Label Corporation.
Brian Cleary, Category Manager, Indigo Label Solutions, HP, added, “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.”
Digital Packaging Summit 2018 is scheduled to take place from Nov. 5-7 at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla.
