FuturePrint Leaders Summit: Event With Purpose Will Lead Change and Inspire Community

The Event Will Be Held in Geneva 29-30 June 2022

On the 29-30th June 2022, global print leaders will gather in Geneva for the FuturePrint Leaders Summit 2022. An unconventional event by design, the Leaders Summit will inspire leaders to drive their own change, to listen to stories from inside and outside the print sector, and to lead transformation in their organisations.

The Summit Agenda
Day 1 - 29th June
The first day’s programme takes place at the Palexpo Congress Centre and features keynotes, panels, and presentations from inspiring leaders from print and packaging as well as other industries.

The morning session will cover a breadth of topics including creating success in a crisis and thinking differently about business, which will conclude with a networking lunch.

The afternoon comprises two streams of content focusing on innovation and technology, with discussions including Innovation and Women Leading in Print. The day will conclude with an exclusive evening reception at Villa Sarasin.

Day 2 - 30th June

The second day will give delegates the opportunity to discuss the key issues facing our industry in a roundtable format at Villa Sarasin that will encourage new connections, fresh ideas, and the tools to facilitate change.

The morning will be split into two discussion groups: leadership and sustainability. The sessions will cover topics including supply chain crises, localisation, net-zero targets and the evolving employee/employer relationship.

Marcus Timson, Co-Founder of FuturePrint, comments: “The print sector has been under stress caused by forces from outside the sector. This has compelled us all to adapt or risk becoming obsolete. It has also shaped the intention and objectives for the FuturePrint Leaders Summit – it’s the perfect time to convene and set the agenda for the future.

“With just over a month to go, we can’t wait to bring the community together to share perspectives, inspire innovation, and spark new ideas. The industry needs a beacon to help us move forward, particularly in turbulent times, and we believe the FuturePrint Leaders Summit will succeed in lighting the way.”
