Industry knowledge platform GlobalQuality.space is gold sponsor and keynote speaker for this year’s Label Summit Latin America, which returns to Chile. The annual two-day rotating conference and exposition, which takes place at Espacio Riesco Convention Center in Santiago between 10-11 March, is the leading educational event supporting the label and package printing industry in Latin America.
Aimed at senior decision makers working within the industry, the conference will equip delegates with in-depth label and package printing trade knowledge plus strategic insights into how they can help advance the sector in the region. The key focus for day one will be business development in Chile and the wider region, while day two will focus on packaging, design and branding. GlobalQuality.space’s business development manager Askold Zimmermann will give the opening keynote presentation on day one. Covering workflow automation and quality control, he will explore new technology, quality control for converters and brand owners, and improved inspections of text, graphics and print. The new era of printing tool management - software-based and content-based - will also be covered.
Jessika Bustamante Meisner, Label Summit Latin America 2020 event manager, said: “We are very pleased to welcome GlobalQuality.space as gold sponsor and keynote for this year’s event. Chile’s highly developed export market makes for a hypercompetitive labels and packaging hub in the Southern Cone, where automation has become a necessity to stay on the forefront. It also means that technological advancements in quality control, inspection equipment and workflow for profitability are fitting topics for the region’s converting community to learn from.”
Zimmermann added: “We are delighted to lend our support to this year’s Label Summit Latin America and explore together the opportunities to connect the existing digitalization and new automation processes to the promising Industry 4.0 approach. Latin America is a key focus for us because of the economic growth in the region and great opportunities to become automation-ready.”
