EFIA Breakfast Meetings & Seminars

EFIA continues the Association’s drive to unite the wider flexo supply chain under the principles of ‘Educate, Innovate, Collaborate, and Legislate’, headlines identified by EFIA members as the key lynchpins of industry progress.

As the topic of sustainability continues to dominate the news agenda, EFIA has begun to host Breakfast Meetings that connect directly with the needs of the flexographic printing industry. Each meeting will involve a panel of speakers that represent the broad spectrum of the packaging, print and recycling supply chain to debate and determine a strategy for the sector.

Breakfast Meetings will be featured within the News section of our website when they are announced, or you can contact us for further details and to reserve your place.

EFIA Board Meetings

The Board of Directors meet several times a year to discuss topics relevant to the industry and all EFIA Members. View full details

In addition, a number of high profile events, trade/supplier exhibitions, presentations and open days are attended by EFIA in order to promote the flexographic process.
