Benelux Online Print Event 2022

08 jun. 2022

The Benelux Online Print Event will be organized again this year on June 8 as a physical event. The day before the event on June 7, a Masterclass e-Business Print will be given by #BOPE22 keynote speaker and industry expert Bernd Zipper.

We are very much looking forward to welcoming you back ‘in person’!

Back to (e-)business clearly reflects what we have all been looking forward to in recent months. Back to real contacts and physical networking to share knowledge and do business. Therefore, and following on the event, an exclusive VIP dinner.

The digital tsunami that engulfed society and the strong e-commerce growth that accompanied it, has also accelerated within the graphic arts sector. At #BOPE22, VIGC wants to inspire and motivate to give e-business a central place within the strategy of the graphic company.

The program already looks spectacular with speakers from Germany, the Netherlands, Panama, Denmark and Belgium who highlight the international character of this event.

We look at the challenges that lie against the current economic reality. Which trends and developments should definitely be monitored? And we also let a number of entrepreneurs speak who will share their e-business cases. Like every year, we also look over the wall. This year with a presentation on Artificial Intelligence (AI) by the world-renowned research center IMEC.

International speakers, quality networking and an exclusive VIP dinner, that’s what #BOPE22 stands for. We are ready for a successful edition in June 2022!
