Visitors to the FESPA Digital Corrugated Experience will also have the opportunity to attend daily conference sessions from industry leading speakers including HP, Sun Automation, ESKO and Swanline, who will share their own experiences and case studies on topics such as inks, colour management and scheduling. In addition, the News sessions will feature further information about single pass printing, digital pre- and post-print, digital cutting and creasing and retail packaging design. The daily seminars will start at 11:00h and the full programme can be found at www.corrugatedexperience.com
Head of Events, Duncan MacOwan at FESPA comments: “We’ve received a strong level of commitment from exhibitors for the first Digital Corrugated Experience and we’re excited for FESPA 2018 visitors – both PSPs and converters – to see how they can reap the benefits of digital printing for corrugated packaging and POS displays. We’re delighted to be able to offer the sample comparison area to visitors, a first at a FESPA event, to provide them with the opportunity to compare the same file produced by different machinery manufacturers. Along with our corrugated conference offering, visitors will find plentiful support to help them explore how to take advantage of opportunities in digitally printed packaging.”
