An online event showcases Italy’s graphic machinery industry

The Streaming Roadshow, organised by ACIMGA, the association of Italian manufacturers of machinery for the graphic, paper and converting industry, was held in online format for UK attendees on 11 November. The webinar, attended by over 100 guests, was a great success. Welcome addresses were given by Ferdinando Pastore, the director of the Italian Trade Agency in London; Massimo Carnelos, the head of the Economic and Trade Office at the Embassy of Italy in London; and Andrea Briganti, the director of ACIMGA. The speakers then discussed the printing, packaging and converting chain in the UK.

Speakers representing the Simec Group, OMET, Ferrarini & Benelli, Donau Carbon Technologies (DCT) and APR Solutions discussed their visions and solutions for the sector in terms of sustainability and Industry 4.0. On the British side, a representative of Two Sides UK discussed the company’s project to raise awareness of the sustainability of paper; a speaker from Bluetree Print talked about how automation and digitalisation had enabled the company to grow, and a representative of Whitmar Publications gave an overview of trends on the British market.

Roadshows are an important opportunity for dialogue and internationalisation and an occasion to showcase Italian manufacturing, a sector that enjoys an excellent global reputation and nurtures sustainability, digitalisation and innovation.
