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 comments: “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.”
