Convergence 2021, Loftware’s annual user conference, is set to take place on October 19 – 21.
The 3-day virtual event is the only event specifically tailored for labeling and packaging artwork professionals. Loftware brings together business leaders and technology experts from across the industry to educate and inspire, while offering you a unique opportunity to network with other like-minded professionals.
Following the recent combination of Loftware and NiceLabel, this year’s landmark event is open to the public and users of both solutions.
Read on for four reasons to attend Convergence 2021.
#1. The opportunity to network and hear first-hand from other labeling professionals. Participate in one-on-one meetings and interactive sessions to take your labeling to the next level. Hear about the latest labeling technology trends, chart your own roadmap with seasoned experts, and see the latest Loftware technologies in action.
#2. You’ll get a sneak peak of our annual Top Trends survey. What are the emerging trends impacting labeling and packaging over the next year and how will they affect your business? Labeling and product packaging are both areas that offer significant opportunity to gain control, create new efficiencies, increase agility, and stay competitive during these tumultuous times. We will share the early results from our annual Top 5 Trends Survey - highlighting what’s top of mind for your peers and offering insights into trends that will transform the market and impact your business in 2022.
#3. Professor Willy Shih from the Harvard Business School will deliver a keynote. Professor Shih will join Loftware President and CEO, Robert O’Connor, to explore the impact of COVID-19 on global supply chains. Professor Shih will share his perspective on how the pandemic transformed companies and their global supply chains (now and in the future). He will discuss how companies have been affected by a supply shock, closely followed by a demand shock, and how this is forcing them to rethink their supply chains.
Highlights for this year’s event include customer case studies from Timken, B. Braun, Kao, Cumberland Packaging, AngioDynamics and Epredia, as well as product tours of Loftware NiceLabel Cloud 10, Loftware Spectrum and Loftware Smartflow.
#4. It’s free to attend and open to the public for the very first time. We’re looking forward to some new faces joining us to hear about labelling and packaging artwork best practices. With an impressive 1,000 attendees expected to join us, this is an event you won’t want to miss out on!
