For the first time ever, the pre-press company for each Diamond Award winning printer will also be recognised for their part in creating exceptional print.

In appreciation of the important production chain which leads to the final printed product, FTA Europe welcomes pre-press companies to be a part of this special awards ceremony.

The 14 categories for flexo printers include best print on paper and labels, on film, and print on aluminium. For each of the 14 categories, the pre-press company of the Diamond Award winner will be recognised as the winning pre-press company.

The 2021* Diamond Awards, to be held on 22 April 2021, will therefore be even more representative of the flexo community and of each step which goes into fantastic flexo printed products.

Taking place at the Intercontinental Hotel Düsseldorf, this really will be the key party during drupa for the flexo community.

A cocktail reception will be followed by the awards ceremony and dinner. The evening, of course, will be rounded off with an after-party to remember.

The awards are drawing closer, but if your company wants to be even more involved in the event, don’t delay in contacting us about sponsorship opportunities. The sponsorship package brochure can be downloaded here. Information on tickets and tables can also be found on the same page.
