After a welcome at the brand new executive Briefing Centre, attendees will enjoy a rich mix of varied content. They include high level presentations, master classes, a panel discussion and Q&As. For example, print consultant Sean Smyth will detail the changing role of analogue and digital printing and Tim Taylor, Head of Continuous Feed Market, Ricoh Europe, will discuss the best use of inkjet.

The power of Ricoh’s partnerships will be highlighted by technology experts from Hunkeler, Tecnau and Kern. The benefits of the right collaboration will be expanded on in an offline vs inline finishing panel discussion. Test-Tech paper and print consultant Richard Saunders will also detail the importance of choosing the right substrates.

There will be an opportunity to get an overview of the latest software updates when browsing the Smart Factory and Solutions Studio.
