Additional Value of Attending
In 2023, Wetec started a new chapter with The Wrap Institute (TWI) making its debut appearance on the fair’s stage, bringing a wealth of knowledge and hands-on experiences to the event. With a commitment to fostering learning, TWI presents The Wrap Paradise, an immersive experience dedicated to the art and science of wrapping. The motto "Never Stop Learning!" encapsulates the essence of TWI Wrap Paradise.
The exhibit promises a blend of live demonstrations, interactive hands-on areas and exclusive interviews with industry leaders. Among the highlights is The Wrap Warrior Cutting Contest, an exciting competition that offers participants the chance to win attractive prizes while showcasing their wrapping prowess.
Every morning, visitors can delve into practical workshops hosted by world-renowned wrap experts. These sessions encompass a spectrum of wrapping themes, from advertising and colour change to paint protection films (PPF) and design techniques. This presents a unique opportunity for attendees to grow their knowledge and sharpen their technical skills. Doing is the best form of learning.
At the TWI booth, visitors can engage in insightful conversations with big names like Justin Pate, Rainer Lorz, Patrick Weiser and Maike Maurer. The booth promises an interactive space where visitors can explore renowned brands like APA, Arlon, Avery Dennison, and more. It’s truly one of the highlights of the edition, which will surely become a beloved feature in time.
Of course, that’s not the end of the programming. The Technical Forum runs a packed programme with a stellar line-up of lecturers present. Topics are always timely as is the case of the Sensape agency addressing the potential, challenges and threats of AI and automation with a lecture titled "With AI, AR and WebAR to interactive brand experiences". That’s only a small sampling of the expert knowledge you’ll get.
