It is a significant investment for us but well worth it as it provides a valuable and effective opportunity to introduce new products, network and build relationships with existing and new customers. Visitors are always from a wide geographic spread and of a high quality and we expect Labelexpo Europe 2013 to be another fantastic show.”

Labelexpo Europe is firmly established as a must-attend event for exhibitors and visitors alike. As the label industry’s largest dedicated trade show, there is nowhere better to see the latest product launches, compare technologies, network and do business. Even though we’re a mature show, we continue to experience strong growth year on year which is a firm indicator of how buoyant the label and package printing industry is and how much innovation is going on in the marketplace.”
