The annual event in Belgium will be held from 26 to 28 March 2019.
Xeikon Café announced the 2019 schedule for its Xeikon Café Exhibition & Conference events worldwide.
Under the tagline “Learn, Connect, Discover”, 2019 will feature two editions designed to help print service providers evaluate and experience new aspects of digital production. The first edition is the European event, the second will occur in North America.
Through demonstrations, presentations, workshops and discussions, visitors will receive first-hand actionable information and advice on industry innovations and trends, and learn how these can help improve their bottom lines.
“We are excited to announce the 2019 editions of our successful Xeikon Café concept, which now occur annually based on attendee demand,” said Danny Mertens of Xeikon Café.
“Each year, we work hard to bring content to attendees that will inspire them to take their businesses to a new level. We take visitor and partner feedback seriously as we continue to evolve this exciting industry event year over year. And we are committed to sharing actual applications and business ideas that can immediately drive business growth. Each edition is tailored to regional needs, as popular applications, substrate choices and suppliers can differ between Europe and North America. With planning already underway, the Xeikon Café 2019 editions are shaping up to be blockbuster events!”
“We regularly see visitors that have not yet embraced digital production but are ready to take their first steps and want to learn about the specific advantages and disadvantages of different digital print technologies. We also offer insights to attendees that are familiar with digital production, and are now looking into new business generation ideas, or innovative ways to grow their business through automation, optimization or new services,” Mertens explained.
“Xeikon customers who have attended Xeikon Café in the past tell us that the events and the information they received there reinforces the decision they made to go with Xeikon and its partners. In-depth insights into all aspects of digital production demonstrated throughout the Xeikon Café is what they appreciate most as it helps them stand out and stay ahead of the game.”
Xeikon Café Europe – 26 to 28 March, Belgium
The fifth edition of Xeikon Café Europe will focus on the labels & packaging industry. It will highlight the latest innovations in an ever-transforming world of digital production. In addition to the educational Academy with technology-driven presentations and practical workshop sessions, the Conference will feature strategic high-level speakers that provide inspiration and education designed to help attendees move their businesses forward.
The exhibition portion of the event will feature a diverse range of leading industry suppliers, each participating in end-to-end demonstrations of unique and innovative applications designed to provide attendees with new ideas to drive revenue.
For the first time, a Student Day is added to the program and will take place on Friday, 29 March. The addition is aimed at encouraging the next generation of talent to join the industry.
Xeikon Café North America will happen from 14 to 16 May in Chicago. Now in its third year, it will be a three-day exhibition and conference focused on labels & commercial printing including the graphic arts market.
The Xeikon Café website has been revamped to include a dedicated application section where all applications that have been demonstrated at a Xeikon Café event are available online, including full descriptions and production details, offering an extensive and inspirational library of business opportunities for digital printing companies.
“This will increase and extend the value of the work all Xeikon Café partners put into making the Xeikon Café events unique in the industry,” said Mertens.
