EskoWorld, the premier technology-focused event for packaging professionals, will return as a live event next year with an eagerly anticipated three-day program of panels, presentations and live demonstrations.

From 7-9 June 2022, packaging supplier and brand representatives will convene at the Gaylord Convention Center in the picturesque city of Grapevine, near Dallas, Texas, USA, to join daily sessions, demonstrations and workshops with Esko experts, brands and their packaging supply chain partners to learn, share and discover the latest innovations.

“Despite the challenging events of the last two years, and the growing fatigue for video calls and remote events, EskoWorld has continued to enjoy the support of colleagues, industry partners and our sponsors as a successful ‘virtual’ event,” said Melissa Plemen, Esko senior director of Inside Sales and Marketing. “Like the rest of the world, we are now really looking forward to being able to meet our colleagues, partner customers and suppliers face to face again. That’s why I am delighted that we will be welcoming around 500 attendees to Dallas, live and in person at EskoWorld 2022.”

Esko, the global supplier of integrated software and hardware solutions that digitize, automate and connect the go-to-market process of consumer goods, had originally scheduled its 2020 event to be held at The Gaylord Resort and Convention Center in Grapevine, before moving online in the wake of the global pandemic.

Last year’s virtual EskoWorld 2021 event attracted almost one thousand online attendees, with more than 15,000 individual registrations for the 81 dedicated sessions across five days.

“Although the online events have been hugely successful, we’re all incredibly excited we’ll finally be able to meet in this great venue for our annual user conference,” said Melissa. “We’re already gearing up to discuss all things cloud-related and to showcase a wide range of innovative and integrated new solutions to help customers continue their digital transformation journey,” she said.

EskoWorld 2022 will take place from 7-9 June 2022, at the Gaylord Resort & Convention Center in Grapevine, near Dallas, Texas, USA. The full event agenda will be announced in early 2022, but registration is open now – with significant savings available for early bookings.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.
