Texas event marks return to live setting with more than 120 sessions, demos, and more
With just a month to go until EskoWorld, the premier technology-focused event for packaging professionals, the eyes of the packaging industry are fixed on Texas, where Esko will host over 120 sessions, demonstrations, workshops, and more.
The event, held at the Gaylord Convention Center & Resort in Grapevine, Texas, from June 7th-9th, marks EskoWorld’s return to a live setting, having not been able to welcome attendees in person since 2019. Hundreds of packaging and label converters and industry experts are expected to attend the event, with the return to a live venue making it the most anticipated EskoWorld to date.
Looking ahead to the event, Melissa Plemen, Esko Sr. Director of Inside Sales and Marketing, commented: “This year’s EskoWorld marks our return to in-person events, and we’re thrilled to have some of the leading lights of the industry attending, along with customer presentations from global brands like Danone, Alcon, and Padagis. With a packed schedule covering everything from software workshops, trend analysis, and panel discussions, this year’s event offers new opportunities for shared learning, networking, and discovery.
“This learning will be vital for manufacturers and converters looking to optimize operations in the post-pandemic market. The industry is still trending strongly towards eCommerce, with an increased focus on sustainability issues and food-safe packaging. The 2022 agenda is full of useful events that will help industry professionals use Esko solutions more effectively to digitize, automate, and connect processes to boost efficiency, reduce waste, and increase print quality.”
The 2022 keynote speech will be delivered by Maimouna Diakhaby, Associate Partner at intelligence experts McKinsey, kicking off the three-day event which features more than 150 presentations, demos and discussion sessions.
“Maimouna is an expert in the global paper and packaging industry,” added Melissa. “They will examine five key industry trends McKinsey identified in 2019 that have further evolved during the pandemic. This keynote sets the tone for the rest of the event, which is focused on helping attendees stay ahead of rapidly evolving trends in our industry. It is set to be a hugely important event at a crucial time for the global packaging industry, and with just a month to go there’s still time to secure a place.”
