Gröbenzell – The PrintCity Alliance is inviting brand owners, designers, printers and finishers to take part in its Packaging Inspiration Forum for the second time. Following the successful launch in Düsseldorf in April, this series of events is now to be continued in Hamburg on 19 and 20 February 2014.
Together with other hot topics, new possibilities in finishing, digital printing and the smart packaging field will again provide a highly interesting basis for visitors to gather information and engage in discussions.
"For me, as a packaging designer, the event was so interesting because it gave me exhaustive information in a short time on technical innovations in printing processes and special finishing techniques," said Kirsten Herb-Gorissen from the Gorissen design agency after the event in April 2013. "There was a great variety of speakers, and the open-minded exchange between the experts gave me a good overview of the opportunities and difficulties of individual process phases."
The existing concept – comprising keynote presentations by renowned speakers and interactive sessions – will be retained, as will the extensive networking opportunities. "What happens between the presentations is always particularly important. The overall concept optimally supported this exchange," remarked Jürgen Kleinhans from Bacardi Deutschland, "I'm looking forward to the next event."
Increased attention will be paid to inviting creative workers, agencies and manufacturers of branded goods. It is essential for the packaging industry to further expand the dialogue with these groups.
The venue will be the Grand Elysée in Hamburg.
Details regarding the programme and registration will follow in the next few weeks.
Preliminary registration is already open to anyone interested at [email protected].
