AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, has opened registration for its comprehensive conference on digital printing for the packaging industry, Digital Xperience, to be held February 26- March 1, 2019, at the Sheraton Charlotte Airport Hotel in Charlotte, NC.  

“AICC’s Digital Xperience is the first conference of its kind, home grown in our corrugated, folding carton and rigid box industries. While other digital print conferences exist, we have built ours exclusively for independent converters and their sales and marketing teams,” said Steve Young, President, AICC, The Independent Packaging Association. 

Digital Xperience will feature 32 world-class speakers, 22 topics, and three plant tours. During the conference, attendees will take a deep dive into the digital packaging world. AICC is working with digital users, digital experts and brand managers to deliver a series of interactive workshops and general sessions to help those using digital printers maximize their investment and to help companies considering entering into digital printing find if, why, and how they can add it into their infrastructure and build operations in plant for digital success.

Participants will learn all they need to create and succeed in their own digital experience and strategy. Sessions will discuss digital from the perspective of every department. Some topics include:

  • What Makes Digital Intriguing to Brands
  •  Business Case for Digital: ROI Analysis/Building a P&L for Digital
  • Understanding the Costs of Digital
  • Achieving the Transition to DigitalGetting Beyond the Purchasing Agents and Marketing to the Brands

Attendees will see the HP PageWide C500, HP 17000, and HP 15500 at Company Box in Charlotte, NC and the EFI Nozomi C18000 at Complete Design and Packaging in Concord, NC. Attendees can also see the Barberan Jetmaster at Sonoco in Winston-Salem.

Taryn Pyle, Director of Education & Leadership Development, said “this conference includes the nuts and bolts information needed to build a business that includes digital printing. We are going deep and wide to answer all of the questions members have asked. The sessions coupled with the plant tours, the digital suppliers, and the brand experts give attendees the opportunity to learn the best from the best.”

Conference attendance is limited to the first 100 registrants. Registrations received on or before Monday, December 17, will receive the early bird rate of $995.
