Delegates will also have the opportunity to network at the conference dinner and arrange future visits to the WCPC facilities at Swansea University's Bay Campus.

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.
