FESPA has confirmed the lineup of expert speakers for the Digital Corrugated Experience conference.
It will take place at the FESPA Global Print Expo 2018 from 15-18 May at the Messe Berlin, Germany.
The conference will educate both print service providers (PSPs) and packaging converters about the production of digitally printed packaging and point of sale (POS). The sessions will highlight the technology innovations changing the landscape of printing for corrugated and how digital technology is making production more flexible and dynamic.
The speakers in the conference sessions are all active in the corrugated industry and will be able to inspire visitors about digital printing for corrugated applications, while also providing top tips and expert advice first-hand.

13:00: Single pass vs multi pass corrugated printing. Nick Kirby, Swanline CEO.
The seminar sessions will conclude with a panel discussion with PSPs and converters considering the question ‘Why do I need to bring digital into an analogue corrugated environment?’ moderated by industry expert Dan Brunton.
The final session of the day at 14:30 will be ‘breaking news’, which will highlight digital corrugated packaging news from the manufacturers exhibiting in the Digital Corrugated Experience.
Duncan MacOwan, head of events at FESPA commented, ‘The Digital Corrugated Experience at FESPA Global Print Expo will provide an inspirational experience for visiting PSPs and converters. The interactive feature will be the platform the industry needs for education on digital print for corrugated. Over the years FESPA has guided our global print community into adopting digital technology and how they can combine both analogue and digital processes. Now we can give the same guidance to the corrugated industry, while at the same time highlighting to our core PSP audience how corrugated could be a new diversification opportunity for them.’
