Print21 + PKN live
Andrew Macaulay, CEO of Printing Industries; and Kellie Northwood, CEO of the Real Media Collective,
for a panel moderated by Print21 publishing editor Patrick Howard,
on future directions for packaging print, and the strategic influences impacting on the packaging market and the ways that packaging print busiunesses can meet the challenges and give the market what it will want.
Guests give thumbs-up
Attendees found the event a valuable experience, with many giving
the debut conference their seal of approval. Among these guests was Pierre Pienaar, president of the World Packaging Organisation, who told Print21 and PKN he found LIVE rewarding and stimulating. “There was a great line-up of speakers who delivered their content well,” he said. “As with PKN’s previous LIVE events, the networking was fantastic.”
Ruth Cobb, general manager of PrintNZ, also made the trip to Sydney with several of her members to attend. “It was a great day and a good chance to catch up with many people,” she said. “It was good to see a few Kiwis had made the trip across the ditch. There was some useful information that came out of the sessions and it is always good to hear from the converters themselves, as well as the machinery suppliers.”
Long-time PKN LIVE sponsor Currie Group was the headline sponsor, along with HP, for the event. Mark Daws at Currie Group said, “The positive vibe was palpable, the speakers delivered engaging, interesting content that was well received by all those I have spoken to. I am looking forward to the next LIVE event." 21
