PHILADELPHIA and MARSHFIELD, MA—December 16, 2014—The Digital Packaging Summit 2015 will take place November 9-11, 2015 at the Ponte Vedra Inn & Club in Ponte Vedra Beach, FL. The Digital Packaging Summit 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 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 the Labels & Folding Carton industry segments.
The Digital Packaging Summit focuses on how widespread changes taking place today are redefining the future of label and package printing. Attendees will meet and learn from some of the leading experts in the production inkjet space through a conference program led by Kevin Karstedt, CEO, Karstedt Partners LLC, and a team of key advisory board members and speakers. Advisory Board members include:
- Kevin Karstedt, CEO, Karstedt Partners LLC (Conference Chair)
- Marco Boer, vice president, IT Strategies
- Jeff Wettersten, president, Karstedt Partners LLC
- Noel Ward, editor, packagePRINTING
"The Inkjet Summit set the standard for high-level information exchange in the digital printing industry. Now that world-class event format is being made available to those in the packaging supply chain," said Kevin Karstedt, conference chair and CEO of Karstedt Partners. "The Digital Packaging Summit will be known as the ‘go to’ event for understanding where and how digital printing technologies will impact package printing for the next decade."
He continued: "I am pleased and honored to be involved in this premier event. Having been involved with digital printing for packaging since its inception more than two decades ago I am seeing clear momentum building in all areas of packaging in regards to digital technologies. The summit is perfectly timed as needs and capabilities begin to converge. I look forward to being part of this landmark event."
While users are looking for information and guidance, suppliers are looking for ways to identify and develop relationships with these potential buyers specifically interested in production digital printing solutions. The Digital Packaging Summit is designed to meet both of these needs for attendees and sponsors.
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 they build long-lasting relationships through numerous networking receptions and meals, optional golf and other fun activities.
"The goal of NAPCO and nGage Events is to bring together leading suppliers and qualified attendees who are investigating and/or expanding their digital solutions into an intimate learning and educational environment facilitated by experts," said Noel Ward, editor-in-chief, packagePRINTING magazine. "Attendees will learn from experts, leading suppliers and, most importantly, their peers, on how to adopt new solutions and be successful. The Inkjet Summit accomplished this for commercial printers and our Digital Packaging Summit 2015 will also be a win-win for both sponsors and attendees.”
