Digital Printer is to host an exclusive online event on 26 November, Digital Re-set, which will look at how the print industry has turned a turbulent year into one of opportunity.

Digital Printer, a sister publication to Digital Labels & Packaging, is the industry’s only magazine focused on commercial digital printing. Given the impact the coronavirus pandemic has had on the hospitality sector, events and large swathes of society, many commercial printers have seen their existing revenue streams dry up or vanish entirely, sometimes overnight.

Some have looked to labels and packaging as a means to open up new revenue streams, as detailed in the recent issues of both Digital Labels & Packaging and Digital Printer, whilst others have pivoted in entirely new directions, such as face masks and other forms of PPE.

During the event, which will take place 2.30-4.30pm on 26 November, Digital Printer editor Michael Walker will host a panel discussion featuring some of the UK’s most successful and influential printers, all of whom reset their businesses when their normal income streams dried up.

The discussion will look at how these printers opened up new lines of business and won new customers, providing unique insight into their strategies and exploring how companies can best prepare themselves for a future where what is ‘normal’ is constantly in flux.

Each panel member will give a brief presentations explaining how they have navigated 2020 and where they plan to head in the future.

Virtual networking opportunities will be available and attendees will have the chance to question the panel.

Speakers will be announced in the coming days and weeks, so make sure to mark the date in your diaries. The event is free to attend and via prior registration only. Register your place at Digital Re-set here.

Digital Re-set replaces the Digital Printer Awards, which cannot be held this year due to Covid-19 restrictions on public gatherings. All 2020 entries will automatically be put forward into the 2021 Digital Printer Awards.
