EskoWorld 2021 (CONT’D FROM PAGE 38)


From 17 to 21 May, almost one thousand online attend- ees joined daily sessions, demonstrations and workshops with Esko experts and packaging supply chain partners to learn, share and discover the latest innovations. Held vir- tually for the second year, there were more than 15,000 registrations for the 81 dedicated sessions across the five days of the annual technology showcase. “As the industry continues to navigate the new normal, we were thrilled to be able to give so many of our val- ued packaging supply customers the opportunity to ben- efit from such a wide-ranging program,” said Melissa Ple- men, Esko Sr. Director of Inside Sales and Marketing. “We welcomed online attendees to more than 80 dedicated sessions, tailored to each audience’s specific needs. Our supplier-focused sessions addressed everything from the latest cloud technology solutions and new flexo platemak- ing hardware developments, through to the latest artwork, design and prepress software innovations. “The sessions on Automation Engine and WebCen- ter were hands down the most popular with suppliers throughout the week,” said Plemen. “From roadmaps on integration through to workshops on how Software-as-a- Service (SaaS) models can deliver new freedoms to busi- nesses, they highlighted how Esko innovations had made improving digitization and automation of processes simple and underlined the importance of improved connectivity across a business through cloud-based solutions.” On May 19 and 20, EskoWorld’s brand delegates were treated to a keynote presentation by David Feber and Daniel Nordigarden of leading management consultant firm McKinsey & Company, detailing the megatrends af- fecting the global packaging industry and the ‘next nor- mal’ for the supply chain. On the second day of the brands showcase, attendees had access to retail insights from Dr. Gino Van Ossel, Professor of Retail Management at Vlerick Business School, Belgium. “A standout feature of the brands event was the high-level of interaction we experienced with delegates,” said Andy Warnement, Vice President and General Man- ager of Esko | Brand Solutions. “We had over 80 questions that led to debate on topics such as content management, color management and digital asset management through to the power of scalability. EskoWorld was a great platform for brand executives to benefit from first-hand access to the challenges and the technology leading brands use to help inform their own digital transformation journeys.” With its range of presentations and discussions with leading industry experts over the two specialist events, EskoWorld 2021 covered all aspects of packaging and brand management. Added Warnement, “While the virtual events for the past two years have been successful, we are looking forward to being able to meet our colleagues, partner customers and suppliers face-to-face again. That’s why I am delighted to announce that we will be staging EskoWorld 2022 live and in person again next year.”
