EFI to host online version of Connect
The EFI Engage Conference will deliver print and packaging education program.
Instead of its signature annual Connect Conference, EFI will be reinterpreting the experience on an online platform called the EFI Engage Conference.
The conference builds on the its recent webinar and online training series for print and packaging professionals.
Sessions will cover a broad range of technologies including EFI Productivity Suite MIS/ERP, EFI Fiery digital front end and EFI Display Graphics and Corrugated inkjet printing solutions. The new virtual conference will also provide the company’s most intensive packaging training yet, with in-depth instruction on integrated workflow automation for corrugated and flexible packaging, labels and folding cartons.
According to EFI attendees will have the same access to executives, networking opportunities, in-depth best practices and training sessions as at Connect. Small and interactive sessions will be available for demonstrations of the latest and greatest software. EFI is also going to be offering sessions in multiple languages for customers around the globe.
“EFI puts an extraordinary amount of time and energy into offering one of the world’s best print and packaging education programs for our annual Connect users conference. Given the uncertainly involved with safely executing in-person events and the careful planning it takes to assemble top-tier content for customers, having a virtual conference in 2021 is the best option to deliver the valuable information that has become the hallmark of the Connect experience,” said Ken Hanulec, vice president, Worldwide Corporate Marketing, EFI.
Beginning on January 25, 2021, the event will be held on six days over the course of two weeks. Compared with Connect event, Engage will feature shorter individual sessions – spread out over a longer number of days and with consideration of customers in varying time zones. Sessions will be timed to minimize the disruption to customers’ work schedules.
