Druck und Design Konferenz
Last Thursday, after a 2-year break, the Druck und Design Konferenz (Print and Design Conference) took place at the Literaturhaus in Munich. The conference is considered the “little sister” of the Creative Paper Conference, which takes place in alternation and about which we have already reported many times.
Right from the start: The conference and trade show, which is organized by Grafikmagazin together with the Verband Druck und Medien Bayern (Bavarian Print and Media Association), was the first industry meeting in physical form in a long time, and so all participants, exhibitors and organizers were overjoyed to be able to see each other and exchange ideas again. Nevertheless, due to the limited number of participants, the conference was also streamed digitally.
In addition to a total of four keynote speeches by Hansgeorg Derks (founder and owner of Derks Brand Management Consultants), Annika Kaltenthaler (Creative Director Zeichen & Wunder), Magnus Gebauer (MedienNetzwerk Bayern) and Florian Kohler (owner and managing director of Gmund Papier), there were various work panels with a practical focus on knowledge transfer. These were led by journalist and copywriter Bettina Schulz, producer and author Marko Hanecke, Vit Steinberger (Creative Partner klee.steinberger) and Benedikt Wild (Managing Director F&W Druck- und Mediencenter GmbH).
The day should have been much longer to be able to pay sufficient attention to all these exciting formats and, in addition, despite numerous breaks, to visit the exhibitors’ booths and browse the latest trends in the paper, finishing and printing industry.
Once again, a very successful event that I look forward to again in 2023.
