Digital Print for Corrugated Packaging Summit

5th October 2016 - The Summit

“The global packaging market is worth some $214 Billion in production billing. Only a small proportion of that is currently printed digitally. A gradual shift to more digital is a very big deal.”

“Your print is not just about cost it is also about value.” Quotes Silas Amos the internationally renowned designer and speaker at the summit.

FESPA UK Association’s Digital Print for Corrugated Packaging Summit was held at the Williams Conference Centre – home of the Williams Grand Prix Team in Oxfordshire – a unique and highly appropriate setting for such an important event.

4th October 2016 - The Williams Experience

We held a unique event on the evening before the Summit, which started with a drinks reception in the largest private collection of Grand Prix cars in the world, assembled by Sir Frank Williams.

There was an opportunity to test your driving skills in the F1 simulator - the car driven by Jenson Button and Ralf Schumacher in 2000. A rare scale model of the 2014 Williams car contained in a bespoke display package created specifically for the car and this event, was awarded to the fastest time.

Along with a tour of the amazing array of F1 cars, driver helmets and trophies, the evening was capped off with a relaxed and enjoyable 3 course dinner.

It was the perfect opportunity to meet the people in the know, share ideas, make friends, renew acquaintances, do business and have fun!
