Luttenberger will give his views on "What’s up next?" in terms of trends in food packaging – a key focus in the IML arena. His presentation follows a real-time IML/IMD industry survey conducted with delegates, and the presentation of the results, as well as an overview of the broad labeling market presented by AWA President and CEO Corey Reardon.
Innovations, from the TruVue plastic can to Xeikon digital printing technology, will make up a wide spectrum of supplier presentations. There will also be concurrent in-depth sessions on in-mold labeling and in-mold decorating, and a financier’s view of global consolidation in packaging and labels from Thomas Blaige of Blaige & Company.
