Despite the coronavirus and challenging conditions, the latest issue of BEYONDPRINT unplugged will be released on November 4, 2020 with many exciting topics. The number eight is a symbol for infinity. Although it is a coincidence that the eighth issue of our magazine falls into the seemingly infinite period of the corona pandemic, it is intended to address topics that seem infinite.
Is a crisis also an opportunity? That is a seemingly infinite topic. Bernd Zipper, publisher of BEYONDPRINT unplugged, head of zipcon consulting and chairman of the Initiative Online Print, is very close to the topic “Print and Covid-19”. He is one of the few people who dare to make a prognosis of how the Corona crisis will affect the print industry in Germany in the long term.
The discussion about whether drupa will take place or not is just as endless. Claus Bolza-Schünemann, CEO of Koenig & Bauer and President of drupa, describes how he intends to overcome the corona crisis and what role drupa continues to play as the world’s leading trade fair for the print media industry.
We are infinitely saddened that our dear Schorsch Wenke has passed away. We would have liked to have discussed the current situation with him, a man who had the gift of foreseeing the effects of innovations and new business models, one way or another. The voice of Hans-Georg Wenke has been muted forever since July 4.
The possibilities for the future seem endless. The German Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology determined that the technology for a German quantum computer is expected to be available by 2025. Some people are scared, some see salvation. The promotional film for print presents the future in a nutshell. There will be a transformation. Success will come to those who can master the adaptation, optimization and automation of all processes.
The Online Print Symposium 2021 will take place on June 8 and 9, 2021 in Munich at its new location. We will once again hear and see an infinite number of ideas and implementations there. Early-bird tickets for this event are available now. The Online Print Symposium 2021 will be held under the slogan “Start Up and Print Online!” and will introduce a new and exciting category called “Insight Pitches”.
