250 exhibitors have confirmed their presence for this year’s Labelexpo, a 25% rise from the 2016 edition. Labelexpo India is a biennial event focussed at printers, designers, brand owners, machine manufactures, and supply chain from the labelling and packaging segment.
Jade Grace, Labelexpo India event director, said, “By seeing the latest technology innovations and solutions first-hand, visitors will gain an insight into how the future will look, which will help them transform their businesses and remain competitive. There really is no substitute for having the whole sector under one roof and buyers and sellers connecting face to face.”
Part of the Labelexpo Global Series since 2007, Labelexpo India is supported and endorsed by the trade bodies including the Label Manufacturers Association of India (LMAI), Delhi Printers Association and the All India Federation of Master Printers. Labelxpo will also host LMAI Avery Dennison Label Awards on 22 November.
Kuldip Goel, president of LMAI, said, “Over the last few years we have seen a major trend with the move from offset printing to label printing and converting. This transformation has been the result of a growing label market in South Asia, and Labelexpo India has played a big role by showcasing the latest technologies from the leading manufacturers around the world.
A series of Labelexpo one-day forums will once again be taking place over the summer in seven key regions of India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, as a means of allowing companies to get a preview of what’s in store at Labelexpo India 2018.
In 2016, Labelexpo India welcomed 8,029 visitors, and with a show floor size of 5,899 sqm, was its largest to date. 200 exhibitors took part.
