Agfa to host virtual event for offset printing industry

Agfa has announced Studio 4D48, a six-day virtual event featuring sessions to support printing companies worldwide through the current business challenges and help them plan for the future. The event will run from 18 June to 26 June, coinciding with the original drupa time frame.

The series of targeted educational webinars focus on market and technology trends as well as on the way printing companies can benefit from Agfa’s latest made-to-measure printing innovations for the offset printing industry. These include printing plates, hardware, and a range of workflow, color management, print standardization, and screening software. All of them underpin Agfa’s ECO³ approach, aimed at making print operations more economical, ecological, and extra convenient.

“4D48 would have been our booth number at drupa,” says Guy Desmet, head of Marketing for Agfa’s business division Offset Solutions. “Drupa and other tradeshows may have been postponed or even canceled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but our commitment to the printing industry stands strong. We want to inspire and engage in printing companies. In Studio 4D48, our experts will give them an update on our offering, and how it can move their businesses forward in a cost-effective way.”

In total, the event will play host to two webinars per day across the six days, consisting of a mix of expert talks, user cases, and Q&A sessions. Each webinar focuses on a specific market segment, including commercial heatset and sheetfed printing, offset packaging, and newspaper print production. Various kinds of automation and efficiency increases, as well as cost reduction, will be a common thread. All webinars will be streamed from Agfa’s headquarters in Belgium, in English. They will last between 30 and 45 minutes each.
