November 18th & 19th 2013, De Vere Village Hotel, Swansea.
The Welsh Centre for Printing and Coating (WCPC) are hosting their Annual Technical Conference on the 18th – 19th November at the De Vere Village Hotel, Swansea.
WCPC is a world renowned research centre dedicated to advancing the understanding and productivity of all aspects of printing and coating. WCPC enhances the understanding of the printing and coating processes, exploits novel manufacturing using printing and applies its scientific findings to the benefit of its global industrial partners. With extensive experience in packaging and graphics printing the WCPC has built on this knowledge and become a centre for functional materials, plastic electronics and bio printing.
This conference is a unique opportunity to view the latest WCPC research in printing technology, to discuss the findings with researchers and to network with like-minded industrial delegates. Each presentation will be a technical paper based on latest results and analysis derived from controlled experiments and numerical models. All attendees will receive printed copies of the abstracts for each of the papers presented. Delegates will also have the opportunity to network at the conference dinner and visit the WCPC laboratories.
The fee for the event is £350 (+ VAT) for industrial delegates and £250 (+ VAT) per delegate for academic institutions. There will also be opportunities for table top exhibitor space which costs £350 (+ VAT) in addition to the delegate fee.
