an online virtual conference
EFI will still highlight its technology at its Engage conference in January

EFI will run an online virtual conference in January 2021.

The EFI Engage Conference takes place over two weeks from January 25, 2021. It offers customers insights on how they can increase efficiency, improve performance, and capture new market opportunities.

Sessions, at the online virtual conference in January, will cover a range of technologies. EFI says it will offer instruction on EFI Productivity Suite MIS/ERP, EFI Fiery digital front end and EFI Display Graphics and Corrugated inkjet printing solutions. The conference will also provide the company’s most intensive packaging training yet. This will include instruction on integrated workflow automation for corrugated and flexible packaging, labels and folding cartons.

The event will leverage the content offering EFI has provided over  the past 20 odd years of its Connect conference. EFI says attendees will receive the same access to executives, networking opportunities, in-depth best practices, and training sessions. It will make small and interactive sessions available for demonstrations of the latest software. The company will offer sessions in multiple languages for customers around the globe.

An online virtual conference “the best option”

Ken Hanulec, vice president, Worldwide Corporate Marketing, EFI. Says, “EFI puts an extraordinary amount of time and energy into offering one of the world’s best print and packaging education programmes for our annual Connect users conference. Given the uncertainly involved with safely executing in-person events and the careful planning it takes to assemble top-tier content for customers, having an online virtual conference in January, 2021 is the best option to deliver the valuable information that has become the hallmark of the Connect experience.”

“Engage will be an online offering unlike any other that EFI has presented. While we look forward to returning to Las Vegas for Connect 2022, next January’s event will deliver valuable information our customers can use to survive and thrive in a rapidly changing market.”

Beginning on January 25, 2021, the event will run on six days over the course of two weeks. Compared with the Connect event, Engage will feature shorter individual sessions. It will spread these out over a longer number of days and with consideration of customers in varying time zones. It will time the sessions to minimise the disruption to customers’ work schedules.

Detailed information available

EFI adds that, in the sessions, participants will gain clear, detailed information on choosing the right technologies. These will help them navigate an uncharted market and maintain business continuity. The company says this forms part of a commitment to help customers future proof their print and packaging operations. They can implement efficient, effective workflows and production strategies that can create stronger businesses.

Classroom-style educational tracks will highlight the latest advancements and newest features in integrated print and packaging workflows. Attendees can learn from their peers as well as through virtual think tanks and roundtable discussions.

Organisers say that attendees can gather the precise, market or application-specific details they need for their business success. Engage will offer virtual labs; one on one meetings with EFI executives; and voice of the customer sessions. Engage will also feature annual user group meetings for EFI Pace, Monarch and Radius MIS/ERP software users. The packaging offering at EFI Engage will highlight the accelerated changes and improvements coming to market with EFI Corrugated Packaging Suite and Packaging Suite end to end workflows.

Organisers will make more details about the EFI Engage Conference in September.

EFI has scheduled the next EFI Connect Conference for January 18-21, 2022, in Las Vegas.
