Following the success of the inaugural FuturePrint Virtual Summit in June, the second edition of the forward-thinking event will take place over five days from the 12-16 October. The first day of the event will be dedicated to ‘Young Guns in Print’, celebrating print’s young leaders, highlighting entrepreneurs and innovation, and exploring how to attract, retain, and empower young talent in print.
During the June summit, more than 55% of attendees were from the 18-35 category, leading event organizers FM Future to build a day of targeted content into the speaker programme that appeals to and inspires younger people in the industry. The entire first day will feature presentations and interviews featuring under 35s in a broad range of roles, sectors and locations, as well as in-depth panels exploring the opportunities and challenges facing young people in today’s industry.
Marcus Timson of FM Future adds “We were very happy to see that young people made up a significant proportion of attendees during the first summit, and wanted to ensure that our mission to provide free, engaging and valuable content extended to the future leaders of the print industry. The line-up of young talent is fantastic, and as well as being useful to young people, the Young Guns in Print content programme is sure to be incredibly beneficial to seasoned print professionals too – it’s an amazing way to kick off five days of insight and innovation.”
