The sample folding cartons created in the framework of the Real Life Sample project exceed all expectations. The visitors to the first Packaging Inspiration Forum and the participating companies are highly satisfied with the results of production in Weiden.

The aim of the project is to demonstrate the interplay of design, form and finishing on the basis of a realistic example, produced by means of highly flexible and economical inline production involving various printing and finishing technologies.

PrintCity: Successful Packaging Inspiration Forum of the PrintCity Alliance

The visitors to the two-day Packaging Inspiration Forum were highly satisfied with the way the event went. The exchange of experience and information on the industry's "hot topics" between brand owners, creative workers, folding-carton manufacturers and suppliers will be continued in further events.

At the Forum in Düsseldorf on 24 and 25 April, some 90 experts from the packaging industry discussed current topics and let themselves be inspired by keynote presentations. The focus was mainly on the subjects of finishing, brand protection, packaging management and digital printing for the packaging industry.

"For me, as a packaging designer, the event was so interesting because it gave me exhaustive information in a short time on technical innovations in printing processes and special finishing techniques," sums up Kirsten Herb-Gorissen from the Gorissen design agency. "There was a great variety of speakers, and the open-minded exchange between the experts gave me a good overview of the opportunities and difficulties of individual process phases. I particularly liked the presentation by Ms. von Buch, because it made it clear to me that producers, traders and we, as designers, have a responsibility towards the consumer - and that we have to do justice to this responsibility. That should be reflected in our work."
