One of Auckland’s oldest family businesses, Soar Printing has moved into digital labels with the purchase of a HP Indigo press. Soar, managing director, is looking forward to sharing his experience at LIVE. “I’ll be speaking about some of the work we’re doing on our HP Indigo 6800,” he said. “As a commercial printer we diversified into labels about five years ago, and now we’re getting some traction and selling more folding cartons as a result of that as well, which is interesting.”

Soar encourages printers and converters to attend, as LIVE will provide valuable learning and networking opportunities. “These events are very valuable for printers. It’s always good to keep abreast of trends in the industry and to meet other people, form different markets so you’re not competitors, and share ideas openly,” he said.

Print21 + PKN LIVE will be held at Monkey Baa Theatre, Darling Harbour, Sydney, on Friday August 3. Sessions will cover:

• Digital disruption and what it means for print
• Consumer engagement via packaging and POS
• Packaging design trends   what brands and printers need to know 
• Game-changing printing technology and the advantages for printers and FMCG brands
• Automation, IoT, and AI… future directions for packaging and printing.

Early bird tickets for the event close tonight, and are available at https://www.book-this.com/packaging-news-live-sydney-2018/event/ticket.
