RotoMetrics celebrates an ‘Exploration of Print’ at UK event
Over 300 converters attended the two-day function and learned about several aspects of a truly evolving industry. Platinum Paper were delighted to be a gold sponsor of this renowned event.
UK Sales Director, Neil Lilly, welcomed more than 300 converters to this year’s two-day event in Aldridge, UK, saying that to succeed and prosper in today’s constantly changing market for package print, converters needed to see and react quickly to new trends and offer something more than their competition. Introducing a line-up of speakers that covered various sectors of the market, the noticeable thread running throughout was responsibility, sustainability and the environment.
Many excellent speakers addressed the audiences throughout the event; including Nick Gilmore, CEO of IC3D Creative Edge Software, who illustrated how innovative technology was coming to the aid of the packaging industry. Joanna Stephenson, Managing Director of “Women in Packaging UK” and managing director of PHD Marketing then outlined the market trends and Kevin Vyse of Marks & Spencer showed how from community projects in the 1990s the graph of progress towards a truly sustainable business by 2030 was being achieved.
The event was wrapped up by Sir Ranulph Fiennes, who in describing the various phases of his education and colourful military career, gave a motivational speech that stressed the need for perseverance and a pathological dislike of all competition! Illustrating his presentation with examples of his many global explorations, mostly at the North and South Poles, he emphasised the importance of being first at everything, irrespective of the hardship involved.
Speaking of the event, Noel Carroll, MD of Platinum Paper said ‘Platinum Paper were delighted to be a gold sponsor of this event, The Exploration of Print. The speakers and subject material were top quality, interesting and informative. A great two days were enjoyed by all’.
