Registration Opens for Xeikon Café North America 20234
ELGIN, Illinois, March 9, 2023 – Xeikon America today announced that registration is now available for the company’s annual Xeikon Café North America 2023. It will run from May 9th through May 11th at the Elgin Holiday Inn and Conference Center and the newly-opened Xeikon headquarters facility.
This will be the first full-scale Café event held in North America since the Covid-19 pandemic although small, usually virtual, Xeikon Café activities have been held. The Café is complimentary for print providers and converters. Registration and the full agenda can be found on the Café web site.
Two tracks will be offered: one for label/packaging converters and another for commercial/in-plant print service providers. Through demonstrations, presentations, workshops and discussions, visitors will receive first-hand actionable information and advice on industry innovations and trends, and learn how to apply that knowledge to bolster their bottom line.
“We have assembled a great roster of sessions, demonstrations and partners this year,“ said Donna Covannon, Director of Marketing, Xeikon America, “and there will be numerous opportunities to network with presenters, partners and other printers/converters.”
A wide range of Xeikon Café partner companies will be on hand this year in the event’s Partner Fair. By working together with leading vendors in workflow automation, substrates, converting and finishing, visitors will see what can be achieved by fully integrating end-to-end solutions for digital production.
Experience levels of Café attendees vary greatly. Some analog printers and converters are relative newcomers while others have many years of experience. Sessions and demonstrations will deliver value to participants of all levels.
