The Café event returns to Lier on 20-23 March
The 2018 edition of the Xeikon Café, in Belgium, will include new features developing the format further. One of these is an educational Academy with technology-driven presentations and practical workshop sessions.
The Academy will provide a technical, educational forum centred around innovative end-use applications and packaging decoration techniques. 'By introducing the Academy, we are taking the technical element of the event to the next level. The goal is to guide visitors towards transforming their businesses for a successful future,' said corporate communications manager Danny Mertens. 'We are driven by the desire to help participants make the most of the fantastic technology that is available in the market and to discover ways in which they can use it to their best advantage.'
Interactive workshops will go beyond product specifications to cover topics related to food safety, automation, exploring the creativity of digital, saving on cost and print technologies. The presentations will focus on the main packaging decoration techniques available today, while covering all aspects of digital production - from workflow, print media and print engines to consumables and finishing equipment.
Attendees can choose from a range of topics, including self-adhesive, heat transfer, wet-glue, flexible packaging, amongst others, and attend the sessions most relevant for their business. Each presentation is concluded with a technology demonstration in the exhibition area.
