In addition to the GREENspace pavilion, there are various opportunities throughout PRINT 13 to gain a deeper understanding about “green” and sustainability and how it impacts your company.

Today from 11:00 am – 5:00 pm, the National Paper Trade Association (Booth 460) is presenting its Paper School, a half-day program focusing on the most important topics in paper and providing a strong foundation of knowledge to build on. The five classroom sections will be taught by industry leading experts from top paper mills. Attendees can also access the PRINT 13 tradeshow floor and take a guided tour of the most advanced printing equipment in the world.

Each NPTA member company can send up to five people to the NPTA Paper School. Those attendees can be individuals from the member company or customers of that company.

The packaging industry consists of a complex eco-system driven by brand owners and serviced by technology providers, converters/printers, contract packagers, graphic services companies, and commercial printers. All companies engaged in this market are actively engaged in exploring how digital printing and packaging innovation can add value, open new markets, reduce costs, and address sustainability. This session will explore each of the above business dynamics, as well as the digital technology capable of addressing them.

On Wednesday, September 11 from 10:30 am - 12:00 pm, Craig Surette, Vice President, Kernow North America, Inc. will present “Digital Plastic Print Media—Key Trends Transforming Apps and Profits” (R61, Fee: $125, and counts as one session towards a value package).

America’s biggest applications and vertical markets will be discussed in detail—the economics, the benefits, and the impact to the pressroom—to identify new, immediate opportunities to accelerate your business. Attendees will also learn how to respond to the “green” question: what is “green” in the world of synthetics.
