Letter from BMPA President

Print Summit 2010, February 24, Mumbai
Dear Packaging Printer/Buyer/Enthusiast,

I am extremely delighted to inform you on an interesting proposal that should get you up-to-date on matters relating to food packaging and the related chain of items.

This food for thought is being brought to you by The Bombay Master Printers' Association (BMPA) over a comprehensive menu of interesting speakers via its upcoming event of - Print Summit 2010 on Feb 24 at The Leela Kempenski, Mumbai, as part of the Printers' Day initiative.

What's on offer?
Especially for those who crave to know more on Food Packaging and its nitty-gritty we have:

Stefan Stills from Janoschka Graphics, Germany, is acclaimed for his contribution in having Janoschka Graphics, the firm he works for, become a Print Management Agency (PMA) for the Unilever's European Knorr portfolio.

He will discuss Trends in the Packaging print market in Europe.
  • Insights into FMCG packaging requirements.
  • The challenges for the print packaging provider in the supply chain.
Avik Chatterjee from Arets Graphics N.V, a Belgian specialized manufacturer of UV inks and coatings. He will be discussing: Packaging Inks for food which is certainly the major market and concern in the global scenario and the related new developments, trends, ideas and restrictions in this domain. Mr. Chatterjee will cover Electron Beam curing technology and will expound on European restrictions and regulations thus covering the export requirements in terms of quality. His presentation will also touch upon the Indian scenario highlighting whether UV can help in commercial printing or other market areas as well?

Shinichi Sasaki - Manager, International Sales and Marketing, Graphic System Division Ryobi Limited, Japan, will help us understand the new paradigm of LED Curing which is expected and positioned to offset the UV Curing process.

There is much more to Print Summit 2010 by way of Management from guest speakers and an exclusive session that discuses the Style and Substance with which the NexGen of printing industry is heralding change.

Given below is a link to the Print Summit 2010 brochure. It contains the agenda and the registration form for the seminar. There is an early bird promotion and we are sure you find Print Summit a great learning experience of immense value not only to printers but all those related in the supply chain of print and packaging procurement.
