The event will take place in Geneva on June 29 and 30, 2022
On June 29-30, 2022, the world’s print leaders will gather in Geneva for the FuturePrint Leaders Summit 2022. An unconventional event by design, the Leaders Summit will inspire leaders to drive their own change, hear stories of inside and outside the printing sector and driving the transformation of their organizations.
The Summit Agenda
Day 1 – June 29
The day one program takes place at the Palexpo convention center and includes keynotes, panels and presentations from inspiring leaders in print and packaging and other industries.
The morning session will cover a wide range of topics including creating success in times of crisis and how to think about business differently, culminating in a networking lunch.
The afternoon features two content streams focused on innovation and technology, with discussions on innovation and women leaders in print. The day will end with an exclusive evening at Villa Sarasin.
Day 2 – June 30
The second day will give delegates the opportunity to discuss the key issues facing our industry in a roundtable at Villa Sarasin that will encourage new connections, new ideas and the tools to facilitate change.
The morning will be divided into two discussion groups: leadership and sustainability. Sessions will cover topics such as supply chain crises, localization, net zero goals and the changing employee/employer relationship.
Marcus Timson, co-founder of FuturePrint, comments: “The printing industry has been under stress from forces outside the industry. It has forced us all to adapt or risk becoming obsolete. It also shaped the intent and goals of the FuturePrint Leaders Summit – it’s the perfect time to come together and set the agenda for the future.
“With just over a month to go, we look forward to bringing the community together to share insights, inspire innovation and spark new ideas. The industry needs a beacon to help us move forward, especially in turbulent times, and we believe the FuturePrint Leaders Summit will successfully light the way.
