Sustainability and circular economy are the leading ways to a brighter future. But what is really sustainable? Which loops are really closed? What eco-friendly solutions are already available today – and what awaits us tomorrow?
Based on 175 years of experience and know-how in 100% recycling-based paper and packaging solutions we at LEIPA now share our knowledge when it comes to sustainable and innovative solutions.
Together with our guest speakers and coaches we will address important questions, shedding light on topics from different viewpoints: From the manufacturer and their suppliers, to the brand owner and packaging designer, to consumers, research and education.
Inspiration for Innovation & Transformation.
We are fully aware of the consumer drive to radically change the way we print and package our goods. However, whilst some drivers are based on facts, many are based on myths and this causes unrest in our industry. Some focus on satisfying consumer demand, others aim to educate and compromises are being found to keep brands competitive. Factors such as country recycling infrastructure, commercial viability, perception and more all determine the choices brand owners make today on their print and packaging requirements.
We explore how our panellists aim to dispel the myths, educate and inform, as well as digitalise our business ; all whilst supporting brand owners working in and around our industry.
As the market leader in AR, with over 2 million snoops to date, snoopstar connects the printed, analogue world with the augmented, digital world. Brands get a completely new dimension in their communication strategy. Print and packaging become moving image.
With our papinar (paper webinar) we offer brand owners, designers, printers and packaging experts first-hand insight. With many interesting real-life examples. Let us inspire you and learn how snoopstar can add tangible value to your print and packaging products.
