The 7th Flexo-Print-Pack Congress & 2006 International Grand Prix Cyrel® Awards will be held at the Palacio de Congresos in Valencia, Spain from March 22nd to 25th, 2007. Introduced by DuPont in 1982, the Congress and Awards has become one of the premier events demonstrating the power of flexography in the global printing and packaging markets.
"New Horizons", the theme of the Congress and Awards, continues the tradition of highlighting some of the best in flexo printing while preparing for future technology advancements and market changes.
"Flexo is a dynamic technology and DuPont has a strong history of developing new science- based standards and products for flexographic printing, such as Cyrel® FAST . "New Horizons" fits both the industry and our company --- always looking to the future," said Lisa DiGate, global business director for DuPont Packaging Graphics. "We at DuPont believe the future looks bright for flexo because flexo produces the high-impact graphics that CPGs rely on to capture consumer attention in an ever more competitive consumer market."
The two-day Flexo-Print-Pack Congress will focus on that competitive consumer marketplace as well as emerging trends in flexo. Packaging topics include "Significance of Packaging to Increased Product Value", "Trends in Customer Perception of Packaging" and "Packaging Contribution to Environmental Sustainability". Flexo topics include "Standardization in Flexography", "Challenges for Flexo" and "New Horizons for Flexo".
The highlight of the event is the formal presentation of the 2006 International Grand Prix Cyrel® Awards. Showcasing the finest work that flexography can produce, competition for the 2006 Awards was fierce: an international panel of judges selected finalists from more than 1700 entries from around the world.
