“We are excited to be back in person for FORUM 2022 for a more immersive experience,” said FORUM 2022 Chair Bart Wright of Pacificolor LLC. “Flexographic technology has continued to advance, so now it’s time to harness these new and proven solutions to create exceptional results for our clients—and this year’s presentations will demonstrate how.”

FORUM 2022’s agenda includes an extensive look at PQX and how it is being adapted into today’s print score card, a discussion about the root causes of issues with ink and a debate between top anilox roller manufacturers on types of engravings. In addition, sessions will explore opportunities for expanding flexographic business offerings, practical solutions for real-world production issues, optimizing press operations for better print quality and an evaluation of how CxF files are used throughout the flexographic workflow.

“Every session is focused on resolving some type of issue, whether it’s in production, business development or meeting the needs of a brand owner,” added FORUM 2022 Co-Chair Laura Wright of CSW Inc. “Attendees will leave with an arsenal of techniques for making their print operations more efficient and effective at delivering on customer needs.”
