The roadshow dates and locations are as follows:

Kevin Liu, Labelexpo Asia 2019 project director, said: “Following the success of our extremely popular 2017 roadshows, once again we are delighted to be able to offer this series in the run-up to Labelexpo Asia 2019. Flexible packaging in particular is set to be a major theme at this year’s show for the first time, with the introduction of our Flexpack feature area, so we would encourage printers looking to move into this rapidly growing sector to attend one of our roadshows. We strongly recommend early booking as places are strictly limited.”
Aimed at printers, designers, brand owners and industry suppliers, Labelexpo Asia is the largest label and package printing event in the region, and will run 3-6 December at Shanghai’s New International Expo Centre (SNIEC). Supported by PEIAC, the show provides a platform for 300 industry leading companies from the region and more widely to showcase their expertise, products and technology innovations. It brings together the entire supply chain with machinery, ancillaries, substrates and ink suppliers all under one roof.
Chinese exhibitors include: Brotech, HanGlobal, Jinda, KingLabel, Rhyguan, SilkStar, Spande, Taiyo, Wanjie, Weigang, Winbosc, Zhongshan Fuzhou, and Zhongte. Overseas exhibitors include: Avery Dennison, Dilli, Domino, Lintec, Konica Minolta, OMET, Ritrama, and UPM Raflatac.
The new Flexpack area will showcase the latest technology in flexible packaging. Visitors will get to see in-line presses in action, as well as learn about the latest innovations in inks, coatings and surface treatments such as corona for flexible packaging and laminating films. Ancillary machines will also be demonstrated, such as high speed slitting equipment for master flexible packaging rolls. An educational program of expert-led master classes is also planned to complement the main Labelexpo Asia 2019 exhibition.
Entry is free to Labelexpo Asia. Visitors should pre-register on the show website to receive their full exhibition pass.
