The conclave will be held over three sessions that will primarily focus on print optimization and color management for flexible packaging.
Among the eminent experts who will address the conclave is Amitava Ray of Uflex, who will deliver the keynote address, Hiro Fukui San (Itochu) of Unicharm India Ltd. which owns the renowned babycare brand, Mamy Poko Pants. In fact, all the panelists who will address the respective sessions are experts from different segments of the printing and packaging industry. They will share their experience along with case studies, know-how as well as know-why.
The International Packaging Conclave 2016 will be conducted across three sessions:
Session 1 – Prepress, Color Management, Work Flow
