Representatives from Canflexographics, Xeikon's channel partner in the Canadian market, will also be present at the event.

Ring, president of Xeikon America, Inc. "We truly believe an educated customer is the best customer! The Xeikon Café events provide a great opportunity to learn and network with experts, and each other. In this particular case, everyone will also see and hear from a remarkable Olympic gold-medalist."
