The show featured demonstrations of 29 pieces of machinery and 15 working presses.

The South China Label Show 2012 attracted 5,098 visitors as its second edition was held at the Pazhou Exhibition Center in Guangzhou December 4-6. The show exceeded previous statistics in attendee and exhibitor numbers and many senior executives visited, confirming the fast growing importance of the event and the market in the region.

Overall attendance was up by 26.8% over 2010’s figure of 4,021. Exhibitor numbers increased from 90 to 150, with 26 new companies exhibiting for the very first time. Before the show closed its doors, the organizers reported a space rebook for 2014 of 28%.

As well as a busy exhibition show floor which featured demonstrations of 29 pieces of machinery and 15 working presses, the South China Label Show also featured six well-attended conference sessions.

The keynote presentation was given by Jukka-Pekka Haapanen, vice president - Asia Pacific at UPM Raflatac, who compared global market trends and explored emerging trends and best practices in China. Other presentations included an overview of the new technology and market opportunities for beverage labeling by Manter’s Christian Galí and long-term anti-counterfeiting solutions by Du Zhenlin, president of the Shenzhen Association of Anti-Counterfeiting.

John Davy, sales director for the South China Label Show, says: “The Labelexpo team would like to thank everyone involved with the South China Label Show for their contribution in making 2012’s event so successful. Such a large increase in visitor and exhibitor numbers clearly underlines the show’s growing importance in the South China region. With numerous exhibitors reporting strong sales and the news of at least 25 units being sold at the show it confirms its position as an effective platform for sales and networking.”
