Over 130 attendees heard PrintCity Alliance members UPM, manroland, Sun Chemical, Océ, Eltosch and Sappi share their cross industry knowledge on web, digital and sheetfed printing & packaging in Istanbul, Turkey during September. This first ever PrintCity event in Istanbul was highly successful and delivered in collaboration with Turkish printers association BASEV, under the event headline PRINT: SEEN! LEAN & GREEN.
Seminar attendees were enthusiastic about this first event and expressed interest in seeing other future PrintCity activities in Turkey.
Erik Ohls of UPM, one of the seminar presenters commented, “I was extremely impressed about the feeling and atmosphere during this first PrintCity event in Istanbul. All the discussions I had with audience members were positive about the future. We must continue with seminars and workshops in Turkey.”

Benefits from Attending PrintCity Alliance Events
PrintCity seminars offer a unique opportunity to gain valuable knowledge on offset and digital printing best practice, consumables, opportunities and how to achieve real business benefits. All technology providers in the process chain – press, paper, ink, ancillary equipment – freely share their knowledge and answer your questions together.
Attendees received latest knowledge on trends for packaging, magazines, newspapers and book production, through process focused presentations by PrintCity Alliance members. They participated in an interactive programme which included question & answer sessions and break-out opportunities. The most active discussion and number of questions arose on environmental topics. There was also a big interest in UV technology and its use in print.
Direct benefits for attendees included access to the shared knowledge of PrintCity members, plus networking with other industry professionals. To find out more about the activities of PrintCity members within their alliance, visit www.printcity.de
