The speakers and program for Label Summit Africa 2014 have been announced as the two-day conference and table-top exhibition prepares to return to the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC) between 10-11 March.

Bringing together thought leaders and experts from across the label and package printing sector, the Summit will provide the perfect platform to share ideas, best practice tactics and lessons learned for optimizing your label converting business.

Providing a mix of 13 technical presentations, panel discussions and customer case studies, there will also be ample networking opportunities with a private dinner and reception at Grand Café & Beach in Granger Bay.

Label Summit Africa 2014 also features over 20 market leading exhibitors including Flint Group, HP, MPS, New Africa Inks, Nilpeter, Nuova GIDUE, Omet, Paragon Inks South Africa, Prati and Xeikon.

Day one of the conference program will focus on market trends and new technologies. Confirmed speakers include Tom McGinley former MD of Self Adhering Products. Looking back at the printing industry’s involvement with the historic 1994 general election, McGinley will talk about the company’s role in producing millions of IFP stickers which were affixed to the end of each ballot paper just in time for the final campaigning and voting stages.

Rian Moore of Collotype Labels RSA/Multi-Color Corporation will discuss the transformation process mergers and acquisitions make on your business and how to take advantage of being local and global as well as looking at the benefits of forming partnerships and joint ventures.

The afternoon consists of presentations on harnessing new technologies and innovating for the future. Codimag’s Pascal Duchene is joined by Jean-Michel Fouquet of CGP-ETIQROLL as they give a short run wine label printing case study and talk about digital workflow on a conventional press.

Day one also features an African converter panel discussion with panelists including Leon Witbooi of SA Litho, Uwe Bögl of RAKO labels Cape Town, Litho-Chrome’s George Pryde and Peter Frost from Associated Printers. They will explore emerging technology trends and consider applications for future investment as well as give an overview of regional variations by their respective countries.

The second day will highlight opportunities in brand development, product design and positioning. Bill Marshall, managing director of Syndicate Graphics and chairman of the IPSA Gold Pack Awards will co-examine the changing landscape of package printing with PACKAGiNG & Print Media’s Gill Loubser. They will analyze the different types of packaging: cartons and flexibles and anticipate the likely future demand from brand owners and consumers.

Mark Anley from Indigo Brands will discuss developing innovative and iconic packaging. Looking at the cosmetics market in general, Anley will consider short run printing, personalization and explore multiple packaging application requirements.
