EskoWorld Returns in May, Focuses on New Innovations and Sustainability
EskoWorld, a technology-focused event for packaging professionals, returns this year with a packed program focused on addressing the challenges businesses face today and planning for those on the horizon.
More than 500 packaging and label converters and brand representatives are set to come together at the Gaylord Palms Resort in Orlando, Florida, for a three-day deep dive into how the latest integrated innovations make it easier for packaging companies to connect its people and processes, to access data, automate operations and drive operational efficiencies. With more than 130 sessions, demonstrations and workshops already confirmed, this year’s EskoWorld event – from May 23 to 25 – will bring packaging supplier and brand representatives together with Esko experts and packaging supply chain partners, enabling them to learn, share and discuss how the latest hardware and software technologies can help automate, connect and accelerate their businesses.
“From the energy crisis and the erosion of margins to material shortages and labor and skills deficits, we know there are many significant challenges faced by businesses today,” said Melissa Plemen, Esko Sr. Director of Inside Sales and Marketing. “It is now imperative that companies review their current business operations and identify areas where they can make meaningful improvements, meet sustainability objectives and drive operational efficiencies so they can meet the challenges of today and prepare for those of tomorrow.
“With today’s brands and packaging suppliers facing a catalog of potentially crippling challenges, EskoWorld gives us the opportunity to come together with our colleagues, partners and peers, to share our experiences and to discover the latest software innovations that have been developed specifically to make it easier for people and processes to connect, to automate operations and to drive operational improvements.
“As businesses continue their own digital transformation journey, we have assembled an agenda packed with workshops and demonstrations specifically designed to highlight how we are bringing to market new technological developments that will advance the industry, helping brands and packaging converters form a foundation to identify waste, mitigate risk and optimize opportunities while preparing for the latest megatrends,” said Melissa.
The full schedule features everything from software best practice workshops, trends analysis and expert panel discussions, through to new product familiarization sessions. “At EskoWorld 2023 we’ll take a detailed look at the latest integrated software and hardware solutions and spotlight how they serve to accelerate the go-to-market process for packaged consumer products,” said Melissa.
She explained that the format for this year’s event allowed more time between sessions to make it easier for visitors to plan their schedule and also allowed more time for all-important Q&As. “In addition, we’ve also made the planning easier to organize, so attendees can use filters to narrow down the product type and user level of sessions, ensuring they get the most out of their EskoWorld visit,” said Melissa.
Esko is planning a jam-packed agenda with sessions for packaging and label converters alike. The line-up includes successful brands like Tyson Foods and Simmons Pet Food, Inc., who will share their success stories, learnings, and best practices for workflow and artwork management.
“Following the huge success at last year’s event, we’ve also increased the scale and scope of our Interaction Room,” said Melissa. “Visitors can still see the latest technology in action and speak to the experts one-to-one, but this year we will also be hosting classes and demos in the Interaction Room, too.
“With a huge selection of sessions already confirmed, EskoWorld is a surefire way for attendees to get ahead of the curve, while presenting an invaluable opportunity to meet and share knowledge and experiences with their colleagues from across the globe,” she said.
