Review 6th wipf day 2017
This year, some 70 decision-makers from various countries attended the 6th wipf day, representing highly respected companies. The motto was “New opportunities with digitalization and innovative packaging developments”; the event gave guests exciting glimpses into the world of digital printing. Further highlights included innovative product developments, sustainable packaging solutions, and modern technologies.
The many examples on display illustrated just how much digitalization has been influencing the packaging industry.
Providers who now choose the digital route have to be fast, innovative, and nimble. The live demos were thorougly convincing. The digital press team revealed the versatility of the printing facility during the presentation. Its flexibility, speed, and excellent print quality made a lasting impression.
Further discussions focused on the status of biomaterials and the striking functions of the new automatic valve assembly machine. Ulrich Burkart, Sales Director Food Solutions at OPTIMA consumer GmbH, deliv-ered a speech on the added value of the revolutionary “InlineCan” packaging concept.
Encounter with elephants and giraffes
After the official part of the event, we convened at the Asian-style Himmapan Lodge in Rapperswil. We experienced a memorable tour through the zoo with Franco Knie, the former director of the Swiss national circus, and Benjamin Sinniger, the director of the Knie Children’s Zoo. They acquainted the guests with the secrets of elephants. The feeding of the giraffes was an additional highlight.
Then, the guests were pampered with Thai cuisine in the lakeside restaurant. The fantastic views of the Himmapan elephant park, the camel paddock, and the surrounding mountain landscape created moments of relaxation and enjoyment.
