In addition to association support, EcoPrint has also gained the support of FSC Deutschland.
In a unique approach to trade shows, EcoPrint 2012 promises to be part thought-leadership summit and part technology showcase, and in accordance with the EcoPrint visitor journey, delegates will be asked to THINK, TALK and TAKE ACTION when it comes to sustainability.
The Main ‘Think’ Stage features strategic insight into the future of sustainability and the value it has for a print business. While the ‘Talk’ Forum, known as The Round, focuses on specific issues surrounding sustainability with debates and discussions. And then there are the ‘Take Action’ Technical Seminars where the content features technical sessions from advisors, research organisations, experts and consultants in sustainable print production. Finally there will also be the Eco-Showcase Seminars in Hall 7, presented by exhibiting companies on their sustainable products and sustainable stories.
And in case that's not enough for you I shall be there on day 2 hosting a session in the Talk Forum (known as The Round) called 'What Print Media Innovations are Available for the Retail and POP Space? Inspiring a Sustainable Purchase.' So that should be fun. I hope to see you
