Speciality packaging solutions provider, Parkside, will be presenting at this month’s Flexible Packaging & Label Manufacturers Association (FPLMA) Technical Forum, held in Australia.

Taking place at the MCEC (Melbourne Convention & Exhibition Center), 19 – 20 October 2017, the event will tackle a tsunami of innovation and technology developments from across the sectors. With 25 speakers, attendees will hear how these powerful forces can be harnessed to propel the print industry into the future.

There will be around 150 delegates attending the two-day forum from across the Australasian packaging industry, from retailers and brand owners to design agencies and printers.

Paul Horton, Graphic Services Manager at Parkside, will be speaking at the event, with his presentation based on Practical Colour Workflows. This will take place at 10.30am on October 20, 2017.

Speaking ahead of the conference, Paul commented: “Presenting at the forum will enable Parkside to reach out to FPLMA members as we extend our footprint into the Australasian market. I will also be sharing insight from the often challenging progression from ‘me too’ printer to industry leader with guidance for brand owners, agencies and printers on navigating the complex world of Delta E’s; ‘sparkly reds’ and the ‘handbag sample’.”

The FPLMA is a non-profit technical association that aims to improve and enhance the flexographic printing process. The association supports the overall flexible and narrow web packaging market, offering technical information, training and a forum for the exchange of ideas and solutions for the advancement of the printing industry.

It is the second year the technical forum has taken place, having only been launched in 2016, following the amalgamation of the Label and Tag Manufacturers Association of Australia (LATMA) and the Australia New Zealand Flexographic Technical Association (ANZFTA) who together formed the organisation.
