Why Your Visit Is Worth It

Labelexpo Europe opens doors to the rest of the world and has been a reliable source for the newest products and technologies for over 40 years. What this means is built-in visibility, a strong interest from top-shelf buyers and a focus on technological innovation. Product launches do incredibly well and exhibitors have a low bar to meeting qualified buyers from all across the world. The costs to exhibit are well worth the benefits. Take a look at the numbers. 

  • 693 international exhibitors showcased at the event;
  • 37,000+ international trade visitors from 140 countries made the trip;
  • 200 new product launches;
  • 37,000+ square metres of exhibition space used.

Industry Relevance

Labelexpo Europe has a significant place in the label and packaging sector and a reason for that is its longevity. The first edition of this expo goes back to 1980 and since then the brand has been steadily growing in popularity. Editions are spaced every two years. Even today organisers report a steady growth in the number of exhibitors and visitors that attend the event in Brussels. 

Today, it’s considered the largest label event in the world and is the focal point for the industry. The reason for this is the fact that Europeans consume a quarter of all labels produced worldwide. Now that the Eastern European market catches up quickly to the rest of Europe, it accounts for 23% of total European demand with prime labels. The Labelexpo series of events has spread to the rest of the world in Bangkok, Mexico City, Greater Noida, Chicago, Shanghai and Shenzhen.

The product portfolio is comprehensive and trade visitors have the opportunity to see the entire production line in action. Categories include drying machinery, adhesives, label design, inkjet printers, barcode printers, cutting tools, digital printers, engraving, lacquers, laser printers, plates, presses and stamping machines. Live demonstrations are built into the fabric of the expo to give you a sense of the next generation of solutions. When it comes to making smart purchases, there’s no comparison to experiencing equipment and materials first hand. Touch, see and feel! That’s the only way to make an educated purchase. No brochure comes close to what you experience live in person. It’s not an exaggeration to say Labelexpo Europe is the single most important event in a printer’s calendar. 

Who Are You Going to Meet?

We have touched upon how Labelexpo Europe has been growing. It’s time to put that in numbers. Organisers report that visitors have grown 5.6% compared to the previous edition, and there’s an upswing in numbers from Brazil, China, India and Japan, which only add diversity to the already global family of Labelexpo Europe. Nevertheless, the trade fair services the European market first and foremost. The top countries with the most visible presence are Germany, Italy, France, the UK, the Netherlands and Belgium.

The audience represents a variety of professional backgrounds. Exhibitors present their products to printers and converters of labels, flexible packaging and folding cartons; brand owners, label and packaging designers and industry suppliers and manufacturers. It’s also important to note that well above 90% of all visitors have a managerial position in their companies and roughly 86% are in charge of purchasing decisions. What this means for you as an exhibitor is that you’re in a unique position to realise spectacular sales numbers all over the world. That’s why over 80% of all exhibitors rebook exhibition space for the next Labelexpo Europe directly on the spot.

All the giants are there – BOBST, hp, Dupont, ESKO, AVT, x-rite PANTONE, apex industrial, UVFoodSafe Group, GEW, XEIKON and FlintGroup. That’s a guarantee you’re in the right place to network and expand your client list. The quality of exhibitors and strength of programming contribute to the longevity and growth of Labelexpo Europe. 

Additional Value of Attending 

Labelexpo Europe quickly responds to major trends sweeping the labelling and packaging industry and updates its show format to best reflect them.
