Labelexpo Europe 2015 Set to Emphasize on Package Printing

This autumn, when Labelexpo Europe 2015 returns to Brussels, the core subject it will focus upon is package printing.

Labelexpo Europe

In its 35 year history, this upcoming show is set to be the biggest ever edition. It is scheduled to be held from September 29 to October 2 at Belgium’s Brussels Expo.

The show is aimed to attract trade professionals including brand owners, label and package printers, as well as designers. The show’s spotlight will be firmly on the profitable commercial opportunities package print production offers. Visitors coming to the show will be able to source and see the latest label and package printing solutions from more than 600 exhibitors.

In this show, the new technology brought by the successful REVO team is worth looking forward to. The team consists of Flint Group, Nuova Gidue, UPM Raflatac, AVT, Apex International, Esko, DuPont and Adare Group. It is set to display how flexible packaging can be converted by using UV flexo inks with low migration rate.

At present, a majority of food-grade flexible packaging is printed with solvent gravure or either water-based or solvent flexo inks. Since the photo-initiators in UV can migrate, if not fully cured, use of UV is considered to be challenging.

The REVO team proclaims to have developed a technology that guarantees every meter of film within a roll to be fully cured, and consistent matching of brand colours by a seven-colour process ink set.

What’s More in Store for those interested in Flexible Packaging at Labelexpo Europe 2015?
Spread over an unprecedented 8 halls, Labelexpo Europe 2015 is scheduled to play host to several educational feature areas. If you head to The Packprint Workshop, you will get practical insight into how printers can branch out and expand their business.

This will be facilitated by Nilpeter demonstrating its FA flexo press, ideal for flexible packaging capabilities. Xeikon will also play its part, with press demonstrations using its 3500 for digital folding cartons.

The package printing systems presented by HP Indigo and partners will be another interesting element. This is due to the return of the feature area – Print Your Future. Visitors can see a variety of applications, including shrink sleeves, flexible packaging and labels, along with new advanced inks and colour management tools. Both the WS6800 Digital Presses and HP Indigo 20000 will be on display.

According to Labelexpo Global Series’ M.D – Lisa Milburn, 53% of Labelexpo’s exhibitors will be showing products for flexible packaging while 32% will display products for folding cartons.

This will make Labelexpo Europe 2015 offer all printers the most wide-ranging array of heat seal printing solutions available today.

Labelexpo Europe 2022 is Cancelled
Labelexpo is the world’s largest trade fair for the label and package printing industry. Every year, the expo brings in hundreds of exhibitors from around the globe to display the most recent developments in printing technology, materials, and design.

In addition to live demonstrations and product displays, visitors can also attend seminars on global label trends, meet with industry experts, and learn about the latest developments in flexible packaging, digital printing, and more. The Label Academy offers a series of master classes on various topics related to label and package printing.

At the same time, the Label Industry Global Awards recognise the most innovative brands and products in the industry. Whether you’re a seasoned professional or just getting started in the label printing business, Labelexpo is sure to have something for you.

Sad news for the participants, Labelexpo Europe 2022 has been postponed to September 11–14, 2023, due to the problems in the supply chain and the situation in Ukraine. The event was originally scheduled for 6-9 September 2022, but due to the ongoing impacts of Covid-19, it was decided that postponing to 2023 would give exhibitors and visitors more certainty. While it’s disappointing that the event has been postponed, it’s understandable given the current circumstances. Hopefully, next year’s event will be a success!

What to Expect
Packaging is big business. According to some estimates, the global packaging industry is worth over $1 trillion USD. It’s getting bigger. With the rise of e-commerce, the demand for packaging has exploded in recent years. As the world economy continues to develop and grow, so too will the packaging industry.

So what can participants expect at Labelexpo 2023? For starters, they can expect to see more of the same. There will be more exhibitors, more products, and more innovative technology and systems on display.

Live demos will focus on sustainability. Companies are under pressure to lessen the environmental impact of their packaging as consumers’ concerns about the environment grow. As a result, we can expect to see a wide range of sustainable packaging solutions on display at Labelexpo 2023.

So whatever your interest in packaging, make sure you check out Labelexpo 2023. It’s sure to be an event PACKED with innovation, opportunity, and excitement.
