Hear what our sponsors had to say about their experience
at the Digital Packaging Summit...
"The Digital Packaging Summit was an excellent event for HP and
we got a lot of value from our sponsorship. The jam-packed event
offered opportunities to learn from, and educate, industry
executives. The keynote sessions, the one-on-one meetings and the
breakout groups all were worthwhile. There were numerous networking
opportunities, and the event was very well run. The HP team was
extremely excited about winning the case study award for the
folding carton segment and I am certainly looking forward to
attending again next year."
Brian Cleary, Category Manager, Indigo Label Solutions,
"In an industry that is continuously evolving with new
technologies and challenges, the Digital Packaging Summit fostered
focused conversations between business leaders in a relaxing
environment. The enthusiasm and passion for the industry was
encouraging as converters were looking for new and innovative ways
to optimize their operations, and suppliers responded with the
latest solutions. Mark Andy was honored to receive the award for
'Best Case Study - Labels Segment' for our production-level Digital
Series hybrid presentation, supporting our commitment to providing
the right solution to converters to maximize profits and
Steve Schulte, VP, Sales & Marketing, Mark Andy
"The Digital Packaging Summit organizers did a magnificent job
in bringing the most successful, strategic, and progressive
executives to the Summit. Landa is honored to have been chosen a
'Company to Watch' by this important group. Their confirmation of
the significance of Benny Landa's revolutionary technology,
Nanography, is the best recognition we could hope for."
Nachum Korman, VP and GM, North America, Landa Digital
"The Digital Packaging Summit truly is a unique and intimate
networking experience that you can't find anywhere else. As a
sponsor, I found extreme value in this event."
Emily Kroll, Business Director, Durst US
"As a first time digital packaging Summit attendee KBA
experienced tremendous value in this event. The involvement of all
participants gave us great insight to the current and future market
needs in this important new space. The one on one sessions allowed
us for intimate detailed conversations about specific needs and
this will be given back to our complete organization from R&D
to product development sales and marketing. The overall program was
extremely professionally managed with every detail taken care of to
ensure a complete ROI for our investment."
Eric Frank, SVP Marketing, KBA North
"Having access to industry leading decision makers for 2+ days
is the real deal of the event. There are plenty of opportunities to
interact not just during the ""official"" hours. You're getting
access to key industry data and insights in a format you don't get
anywhere else. The 1 on 1 meetings are the icing on a first class
event providing the opportunity to share thoughts, ideas and
possible solutions with decision makers."
Ulrich Kretzschmar, Business Development,
"The totale package was very interesting but for sure the
networking and the one to one meetings were very interesting. Off
course an advantage that the audience are interested in digital
Gert Geens, Business Development Folding Carton,
"This year was our first time sponsoring this event and I will
have to say it was better than expected. I have done many
traditional trade shows and this format gave us the ability to
interact directly with the decision makers in a much more relaxed
environment. We plan on returning next year."
Brett Stow, VP, Absolute Printing Equipment
"This method of Interaction with Customer is by far more
economical and productive than any other traditional Print Industry
James Martin, President, MBO America
"It's hard to say at this point to measure value. I do
want to say that this was the best interactive environment of any
conference I have attended. It was great how the vendors and
attendees were involved together in all of the activities, the
format really gave me an opportunity to meet everybody on both a
business and personal level."
Doug Sherwood, National Sales Manager, Rollem
"This format provided an opportunity for us to listen to what
customer decision makers are looking for in their next equipment
purchases. We could also bounce new equipment concepts off
decision makers and get immediate feedback."
Chuck Raymond, President, Prototype and Production
"The Digital Packaging Summit allows a level of interaction
between vendors and leading packaging companies that is unique -
it's not a sales pitch or a trade show demo, but really a true
partnership to advance the state of the industry."
Mike Rottenborn, President & CEO, Hybrid Software
"By answering questions on the pre-meeting survey, a
manufacturer can reasonably determine if this prospect has a need
for their product or service. Then when you meet with these
pre-qualified prospects you do not waste their time or your time.
This is a VERY productive conference for both customers and
Chuck Burke, Sales Director, Epic Products
"Created a specific forum for the networking that is a more
difficult process at other events."
Larry D'Amcio, Director of Sales NA, Durst

allows a proper level of attention and focusing, supported by an
efficient agenda management and communication."

format and collaborative environment. It allowed for business
development opportunities, hearing future industry directions, and
networking by executive attendees and sponsors in different and
Linnea Wolken, Global Manager, Software Strategy &
"Since its inception, MGI has found the Digital Packaging Summit
to be the premier business development conference in the industry.
The forum is elegant, the event management is superb and the
educational sessions are both valuable and insightful. Most
importantly, the organizers hit a home run with facilitating
direct, meaningful conversations between solution providers and top
executive decision-makers at some of the most important package
printers and label converters in the United States. Our sponsorship
experience has been both enjoyable and successful in generating new
business opportunities as a result of our participation."
Jack Noonan, Marketing Coordinator, MGI USA

events over the last 30 years and the format, content and
networking at the recent Digital Packaging Summit seriously raises
the bar vs. other venues."
Gary Bernier, Strategic Business & Brand Development
Manager, Labels & Packaging, HP Indigo and InkJet Press
"The Digital Packaging Summit was an outstanding and highly
beneficial event providing a refreshing, unbiased look at how
digital print technologies will impact us all. The exposure to high
level converting executives, case studies and one-on-one meetings
is a unique event format that truly over-delivered. A great outcome
for all who attended."
Jeff Feltz, Director of Business Development, Mark Andy
"Today's communication is all about multi-channel, the Digital
Packaging Summit is the role model in 'eventing', interacting with
customers on 3 different levels - through general sessions - case
studies and one2one meetings."
Patrick Van Baelen, Vice President WW Marketing, Xeikon
"The event is well worth the time as it is short and to the
point in an intimate setting and 1/1 meetings with decision
Gina Testa, Vice President of Marketing,
"This event is more structured to C and executive level
attendees who want to hear more about the business case for digital
rather than manufacturing, an exceptional opportunity to meet with
SR level decision managers."
Matt Bennett, Director - Packaging, HP

with business owners and decision makers who have a need and a want
to grow their business by getting into or expanding their digital

I have ever seen."

and say it was one of the best presentations he saw meant we did
Sean Cummins, L350 Product Manager, Screen
"This event provides an ultra-efficient forum to develop sales
prospects. One can achieve the same results from this event
as can be achieved in 12 or more direct selling calls and this
saves you from inefficiencies of travel to multiple sites."
Raymond W Dickinson, V.P. Marketing & Business
Development, Mark Andy
"I have chaired and spoken at many conferences on this topic and
while most were good events they were one dimensional with
information coming down from the podium or 'snip-its' from
tabletops during breaks. This is a totally different kind of event
that immerses the attendees and sponsors in a bi-directional dialog
that benefits both. The information sharing and 'roll your sleeves
up' interaction that occurs leaves everyone with extensive "to do"
lists. The 'deep dive' format and informational exchange is just
what the fast changing package printing industry needs right

of the 2015 Digital Packaging Summit
