Maureen Byrne said her farewells in last month’s editor’s comment so, this month, I say hello. Some of you will remember me from when I was editor of Packaging News, which was for almost 10 years. I left there five years ago, since when I have been editing publications for the wine and spirits sector. Now I am back in the world of converting and packaging and very much looking forward to progressing the editorial coverage of Converting Today and its sister titles, Contract Packing and Packaging Today, and, of course, to hearing your news. August, although traditionally a relatively quiet time for the manufacturing sector, is, nevertheless, an important time for planning ahead in preparation for the busy period to follow. In late September, for example, Labelexpo is taking place in Brussels. The organiser says it is already larger than the previous edition and that all six halls have been filled, which makes it the largest ever label event. Plus this year, for the first time, there will be a zone dedicated to package printing where converters can learn from demonstrations and seminars how they can expand their business beyond labels, often using the same equipment, into short run package printing (including flexible packaging, folding cartons, pouches and sachets).In this and next month’s issue we preview some of the many exhibits to be seen at the exhibition and I hope I will have the chance to meet many of you there.Felicity Murray,Editor
