Labelexpo Europe 2011, which closed on 1 October in Brussels, is claimed to have broken all previous records for visitors, exhibitors and equipment sales, “making it the largest and most successful label event to date”, according to show organizer Tarsus.
A total of 28,636 visitors from 118 countries attended this year’s show – an increase of 18.6% over 2009’s event. It also attracted 550 exhibitors (up from 544 in 2009) while occupying six halls at the Brussels Expo. By the end of the show, 81.3% of the exhibiting space had already been rebooked for Labelexpo Europe 2013, as exhibitors reported buoyant trade with a high level of machinery and material sales.
Labelexpo managing director Roger Pellow enthused: “This year’s show has clearly demonstrated that our industry is continuing to innovate and that the people within it have a ‘can do’ attitude. Likewise, printers/converters and manufacturers are still investing in their equipment and services.”
