This is an important year for Xeikon. It’s thirty years since the company was founded, 25 years since the Xeikon DCP-1 was introduced and four years since the first Xeikon Café. Four years isn’t so very long, but since that first event in 2014, plus additional events in the USA and Scandinavia, the event has grown considerably.
The Xeikon Café is an extended networking session. It involves nearly forty partner companies, a bevy of speakers and customers, altogether totaling well over one thousand participants. As with most such user and prospective customer orientated events, the Xeikon Café is all about interaction, ideas and new business opportunities.
Live production, exhibition and seminars
Xeikon turned much of their production plant into a conference and exhibition centre for the four days of the event. The programme was arranged in four parts, showcasing live digital packaging production on a range of Xeikon presses, with an additional technology exhibition. There were also presentations in the mornings from a selection of speakers and short workshops and seminars in the afternoons. This was an effective blend of activities which maximised interactions and opportunities for peer networking.
