New label trade show

January 27, 2009

Whether it be whippet racing, old cars or madrigals, the first thing that British enthusiasts do when they meet other enthusiasts is to form a club or association, complete with statutes, chairman and annual dinner. Why, people ask, has the UK label business remained like a wallflower at a dance while Germans, French, Italians and Turks have all set up proactive label associations? The answer is that the British Roll Label Association or BRLA does – or rather did – exist, but kept a profile so low that powerful binoculars were needed to spot it.
Now all that is perhaps slated to change. Newly founded as a special interest group under the aegis of the British Printing Industry Federation, the BPIF Labels Group, we are told, “enjoys a high profile within the label industry,” and along with the British Short-Run Labelling Association and its 44 member companies, will be participating actively in “The Label Event,” a conference and mini-exhibition to be held in England in February 2010 and organized by Angel Business Communications. Details about the event are sketchy so far. Narrow Web Europe will keep you posted.
