Mondi, a global leader in the manufacturing of paper and packaging, will host the Digital Specialist Forum (DSF) on April 15, 2010, offering customer-representatives an opportunity to enhance their knowledge of the rapidly burgeoning digital print market. Industry experts will convene in Vienna for this day-long event to discuss current and upcoming printing and paper trends, machine technology, and print quality features.
The DSF agenda includes key training sessions designed to impart knowledge and create discourse about digital market trends, digitally suitable papers, various printing technologies, and print quality know-how. According to Johannes Klumpp, Marketing and Sales Director of Mondi Uncoated Fine Paper, “The key to growth in the digital print market will be the understanding and utilization of variable data printing, and education is needed across the board for paper sales, print sales, print buying and print execution.” CEOs, top Marketing Directors and Marketing agency representatives will be among the participants taking part in discussions about key topics such as Transpromo, the future of printed communication media in the face of new online media, and the effects of digital printing on the paper market.
Among the speakers presenting at the DSF, Andreas Weber, founder of the “DigitaldruckForum” and CEO of Value Communication will deliver the keynote address. The list of guest speakers invited to take part in the DSF podium lectures and roundtable discussions includes internationally recognized entrepreneurs and innovators active across Europe and the globe.
In response to the current industry trends, Wolfgang Kropiunik, Head of Marketing Uncoated Fine Paper contends, “Digital printing is a rapidly growing market. Mondi recognizes this and we are developing our technology and product portfolios in tandem with the evolving digital print industry. Our paper and printing expertise can be seen in our new Digital SRA3 Product Sample Folder, which showcases the high quality print results from Mondi’s Digital Printing Paper Portfolio.”
The digital printing papers by Mondi can be used on all modern printing machines and come in the most important digital formats. They are tested and enhanced for toner and ink-jet, for sheet-and continuous feed and will – together with the printers’ skills – yield the benefits of digital printing: small print runs, print-on-demand and variable data applications to create highly customized print materials. Part of the Green Range product family, these papers are Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) certified, totally chlorine free, or 100% recycled.
