Contact Originators CEO to present at Esko Innovation Summit

Steve Mulcahy, CEO of Contact Originators Group, will be a guest speaker at an Innovation Summit hosted by Esko later this month.

Steve will take part in a live interview session to discuss the future of platemaking and the topic of sustainability in pre-press processes.

Esko, a global provider of integrated software and hardware solutions that accelerate the go-to-market process of packaged goods, is holding the Innovation Summit on November 18, 2021, at Holywell Park Conference Centre, Loughborough.

Packaging producers, suppliers, brand owners and technology developers will enjoy a packed programme of discussions at the event, which is focused on the future of the packaging industry. Delegates from across the industry will have a unique opportunity to interact and discuss how to overcome the challenges of today – and prepare for those of tomorrow.

“The pandemic has accelerated existing packaging megatrends and added a fresh impetus for innovation,” said James Mason, Esko Regional Business Director. “It’s clear there are no simple solutions to today’s packaging challenges. Instead, companies need to pursue a transformational approach, adapting and rethinking multiple aspects in the entire packaging lifecycle.

“Our summit has been designed to showcase new solutions, share success stories, discuss new market trends, and provide tangible tools to help professionals throughout the sector positively transform and advance their own business operations,” he said. “Together with some of our customers and colleagues, we’ll be looking at how businesses can stay ahead of the curve as we discuss the current landscape of our industry.”

Other speakers include Stephan Casey of Nestlé, who will share details of the company’s progression towards an inclusive, low-carbon future, and Geert De Proost, Esko Director of Software to Suppliers, who will be discussing the digitization of internal prepress processes and optimizing communication.
