About Digital Print for Packaging Europe

Europe's Premier Industry Event

The digital packaging and label printing market has more than doubled over the past five years in value and print volume, making it the most dynamic and fastest-growing area of the print market, and prompting new opportunities for the entire supply chain.

Representing the industry as a whole  - from designers, marketers and brand owners, to equipment providers, suppliers and converters - Digital Print for Packaging Europe is the go-to forum for all professionals working within this rapidly-growing $18.9 billion sector.

The 2019 event will take place in Berlin, Germany on 2 - 4 December 2019, with a truly dynamic programme addressing hot topics such as direct-to-shape, corrugated printing, the retail experience, ink development, workflow & colour management, sustainability, design for digital printing and much more. 

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.

Digital now represents 6.38% of the printed packaging market, having penetrated into all packaging types, from labels, cartons and corrugated, to rigid plastic, flexible and metal packaging, which explains why it is of great interest to brands, retailers, pack and label converters and equipment and consumable providers.

The rapid growth and development of the digital print market is opening up new 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.
