Labelexpo Europe 2015 Revisited

BELGIUM • Labelexpo Europe officially reported record breaking numbers in terms of visitors, exhibitors and exhibition space for its 35th anniversary. Held as usual at Brussels Expo from 29 September to 2 October, 2015, the show attracted altogether 35,739 visitors, which represents an increase of 12.4% compared with 2013’s total of 31,795.

However, this year’s event stood out due to the obvious diversification outside the pressure-sensitive straightjacket directed to printed flexible packaging and cartons and also by the concerted efforts of companies renowned for their flexo and offset printing presses to attempt to capture a highly prized piece of the digital print market. Another obvious character of the show was the further increase of visitors from outside Europe, particularly from India.

All these different aspects Labelexpo Europe 2015 are covered by special article in the upcoming issue 4 of NarrowWebTech, which will be published November 23rd. In addition we already have published series of pictures with impressions from the show and the Label Industry Global Award event. We hope that you, our readers, may benefit from our way of presenting and reviewing this most important show for the labels (and meanwhile also) and package printing industries.
