The conference program has been revealed as registration opens for the inaugural Label Summit Indonesia which is being held at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua in Bali between 29-30 May. Focusing on the label and package printing industry, the Summit will comprise a mix of technical presentations, real life business case studies and the latest industry insight and business intelligence into market trends, conditions and challenges.
The Summit commences with a roundup of market trends with presentations by Multi-Color Corporation’s Brenton Barrett who will look at global trends and Ariana Susanti of the Indonesian Packaging Federation who will explore the latest developments in South East Asia. In a printer panel discussion, converters from Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines will look at printing as part of the economy and future growth opportunities.
The afternoon’s sessions will address the latest available technologies, capabilities and applications. The keynote being delivered by HP Indigo’s Christian Menegon, will focus on making the move from a conventional to digital workflow and examine how the converter needs to adapt to cater for short run jobs. Other topics include creating value with 3D technologies and a guide to flexo technology, materials and performance.
Day two’s content has been developed to help identify new opportunities for business growth. Sri Yulianti, research and development packaging manager – home personal care from Unilever will consider how to implement a sustainable strategy for environmentally friendly packaging practices. Supa Stik Label’s Pete Holywell will share secrets on how to transform your business using online marketing and social media platforms, while other subjects include effective anti-counterfeiting solutions for brand protection.
Aimed at label and package printing converters, brand owners and designers, the Summit is complemented by a table-top exhibition with exhibitors including Esko, Flint Group, Gallus, Mark Andy, Nilpeter, Omet, RotoMetrics and Stork Prints. In addition delegates will also enjoy an evening reception and afternoon networking function.
Jade Grace, event director commented: “Label Summit Indonesia is designed to provide an insight into the South East Asian market place and focus on learning and developing best practice from the latest available technologies and trends. Delegates will find out how to maximize business growth opportunities and also how emerging technologies such as digital offer them new possibilities today, not just in the future.”
She concludes: “The consumption of labels and packaging in the region is set to escalate because lifestyle habits are changing. As already seen in other emerging markets such as China and India, this Westernized lifestyle quickly drives change across the supply chain and manufacturing process. The label and package printing industry here is in its infancy, but advances in using more sophisticated technologies, materials and marketing techniques will be fast tracked to keep up with demand. For those fortunate enough to be involved in this cycle, the commercial opportunities and benefits are immense as the Indonesia market matures.”
