Labelexpo Europe 2017 - Focus on learning and skill

The half-day sessions on 26 September 2019 is aimed at equipping the label converters who are planning to enter or expand their production into flexible packaging with the essential technical knowledge required.

Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series, said: “Flexible packaging has an annual global rate of around 5% - one of the highest across all printing sectors. The dedicated master class will give label converters a valuable insight into its potential, and they can build on this knowledge by watching live digital and flexo press line demonstrations in the Flexible Packaging Arena. Self-adhesive labels continue to be Europe’s dominant label technology, so it’s vital that those involved in label production keep their knowledge fresh and relevant by taking advantage of this specialist workshop.”

The Flexible Packaging master class will run simultaneously with three others – Self-Adhesive Label Materials workshop which will be hosted by Labelexpo’s strategic director Andy Thomas-Emans, alongside other experts in the field of self-adhesive label substrates; Digital Label and Package Printing, and Inks, Coatings & Varnishes.

Digital Label and Package Printing, and Inks, Coatings & Varnishes will run on 27 September 2017. The digital printing master class will be hosted by Mike Fairley and leading experts from the fields of materials, pre-press printing and finishing technology. The inks and coatings master class is led by Andy Thomas-Emans and offers participants the opportunity to learn how inks, top and barrier coatings, primers and varnishes are being adapted and applied to modern narrow-web converting operations.

Places on the master classes cost €695 (including the relevant Label Academy text book), while workshop places are €595. In either case, bookings include refreshments and lunch. Places are limited, so early booking is encouraged.
