About Digital Print for Packaging Europe

Digital Print for Packaging Europe is Europe's premier conference dedicated to digital print for packaging. This event covers all hot topics from direct-to-shape, corrugated printing, workflows, the latest market trends and technology updates, as well as case studies from leading brand owners and converters. The 2019 event will take place in Berlin, Germany on 2 - 4 December 2019.

How attending this conference will benefit you

Digital package printing is one of the hottest industry sectors around, with growth accelerating as new technologies for printing labels and packaging come to market, and converters snap them up. Compound annual growth rates in market vales averaging 9.1% are predicted to 2022 when the market will be valued at $20.6 million. Digital labels are well-established but there are major changes in flexibles, rigid plastics, cartons, metal and corrugated which are shaping future markets.

These changes are creating opportunities to delight end users, and grab market share. It is impacting everyone across the supply chain; buyers, designers, specifiers, brand managers, producers, equipment, substrate and colourant suppliers. 

Smithers have been organising this conference for over 6 years, and have long been established as the market leader for providing print, packaging and paper market intelligence so you can be sure that not only will this event provide you with the most up-to-date information but also a great conference experience.
