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.
The 2016 summit provided a unique and valuable experience for attendees to acquire this knowledge and received excellent reviews from attendees and sponsors. Attendees met and learned from the "who's who" in the packaging market, as well as users who have installed or plan to install digital solutions.
“The summit taught me how to market digital to our customers as a solution not just for short run jobs.” Christopher Che, president/CEO, Hooven Dayton Corporation, said.
Diane Barton, associate director of graphics, Perrigo Co., commented, “It was wonderful speaking with printers and learning about their experiences and challenges, and sharing mine. Through the event, I learned a lot and made some amazing contacts that should benefit both of our businesses. I really appreciated the opportunity to attend.”
The unique event format allows hosted attendees to discuss the successes and challenges encountered when implementing this new technology through case study sessions, one-on-one meetings, and a unique conference program developed by a team of key advisory board members.
Board members include:
- Jennifer Dochstader, Owner, LPC, Inc. (Conference Co-Chair)
- David Walsh, Owner, LPC, Inc. (Conference Co-Chair)
- Kevin Karstedt, CEO, Karstedt Partners, LLC
- Marco Boer, Vice President, IT Strategies
- Bob Leahey, Director, InfoTrends
- David Luttenberger, CPP, Global Packaging Director, Mintel Group Ltd.
- Brian Ludwick VP, Publisher/Brand Director, packagePRINTING
The conference program caters to senior level decision-makers tasked with researching and understanding digital solutions and determining if the business case to invest or expand makes sense for their organization.
“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 and GM, 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.”
Some of the topics to be covered through keynotes, panels, and breakouts include:
