PRIMIR, the Print Industries Market Information and Research Organization, during its Winter Meeting, December 9-11, 2013 at The Holiday Inn Chicago Mart Plaza Hotel in Chicago, Illinois, will delve into the results of its newest study, "Packaging in Emerging Markets (Latin America & Asia Pacific)". During this session presenters Jennifer Dochstader and David Walsh, principals of LPC will provide a qualitative assessment of the current state of packaging, printing and converting in these regions plus a current trends analysis. Breakout data for packaging exports, as well as benchmark trending data on interregional and international trade from 2007-2012 and trade projection data through to 2016, will also be covered to provide attendees with an understanding of packaging shipments for tags and labels, flexible packaging, folding cartons and corrugated.
Additionally, the PRIMIR 2013 Winter Meeting will also present the findings from another timely PRIMIR research study, "UV/EB Curing Technologies in Printing," presented by Marco Boer, VP of IT Strategies.
Next up will be a featured presentation of the long-awaited research findings from the NPES study conducted by The Economist Intelligence Unit (EIU) titled the "World-wide Market for Print: Identifying Global Opportunities for the Print Industry." In this session, lead researcher Alex Chan, Senior Analyst, Custom Research for the EIU, will be on hand to share highlights of the data and findings.
