Agfa has announced Studio 4D48, a six-session virtual event that will coincide with the original June dates for the drupa 2020 international print technology exposition. From June 18 to June 26, Agfa will conduct sessions that can help printing companies worldwide navigate current business challenges and plan for the future.
The targeted educational webinars will discuss market and technology trends and how printing companies can benefit from Agfa’s latest made-to-measure printing innovations for the offset printing industry. These include printing plates, hardware, and a range of workflow, color management, print standardization and screening software. All of them underpin Agfa’s ECO³ approach, aimed at making print operations more economical, ecological and extra convenient.
“4D48 would have been our booth number at drupa,” says Guy Desmet, Head of Marketing for Agfa’s business division Offset Solutions. “Drupa and other trade shows may have been postponed or even cancelled due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but our commitment to the printing industry stands strong. We want to inspire and engage printing companies. In Studio 4D48, our experts will give them an update on our offering, and how it can move their businesses forward in a cost-effective way.”
Six webinars will be conducted twice a day, focusing on specific market segments, such as commercial heatset and sheet-fed printing, offset packaging, and newspaper print production. Common threads will include various kinds of automation, efficiency increases, and cost reductions.
All webinars will be streamed in English from Agfa’s headquarters in Belgium. Each webinar will last between 30 and 45 minutes each.

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the drupa printing equipment exhibition originally scheduled for June 16-26, 2020 in Dusseldorf, Germany was rescheduled for April 20-30, 2021.
