More than 450 packaging and label converters and industry experts convened at the Gaylord Texan Convention Center & Resort in Grapevine, Texas on June 7-9, EskoWorld.
Jan De Roeck, Esko Director of Marketing, Industry Relations and Strategy, kicked off the event with a presentation detailing how the need to accelerate digital transformation is being exacerbated by the ever-changing challenges faced by businesses today.
A keynote speech from Maimouna Diakhaby, Associate Partner at intelligence experts McKinsey, examined the five key industry trends McKinsey identified in 2019 that have further evolved during the pandemic.
A special interaction suite featured continuous live demonstrations of everything from 3D technology that helps packaging designers achieve maximum on-shelf standout through to 100 percent inline printing inspection for narrow web and labels.
The event’s closing speaker was Randy Pierce, President and CEO of Future in Sight, a non-profit organization dedicated to transforming the lives of those who are blind, visually impaired, and their families.
The 2022 event marked EskoWorld’s return to a live setting, having not been able to welcome attendees in person since 2019.
