ERA Annual Conference 2020

Gravure in times of Corona

ERA’s  Annual Conference & Management Meeting took place in Hamburg on 5-6 October 2020 in the Hotel “Grand Elysée”. A visit to Prinovis’ publication gravure plant in Ahrensburg in the afternoon of 5 October rounded off the programme of the event. Despite meeting and travel restrictions due to the ongoing corona pandemic ERA’s Annual Conference was attended by some 50 delegates from the European gravure industry. During the conference they discussed presentations by experts from the industry and by external experts on publishing, technical and socio-economic subjects concerning the gravure industry. The lively discussions among the delegates have shown that the personal meeting and exchange of information and experiences cannot be replaced by virtual meetings. ERA’s next years’ Annual Conference will be held in Thessaloniki, Greece in early November 2021.
