SUCCESSFUL LABEL SHOW LAUNCH IN SOUTH CHINA


The first South China Label Show has just closed its doors in Guangzhou on one of the most promising label events that the region has seen, leaving the industry looking forward to the next edition. The three day show boasted 90 exhibitors, 16 working presses and a large number of other machinery units.  Xeikon displayed their new 3500 Digital press for the first time in China at the event.  

A strong and comprehensive 12 session conference program complemented the show. The keynote presentation delivered by Roger Pellow, Managing Director of the Labels Group and Ilkka Ylipoti, VP Asia Pacific of UPM Raflatac looked in detail at the global trends and opportunities in the industry and the current position of the Chinese printing market. Of the 4,021 visitors the majority came from China followed by India, Malaysia and the general Asia Pacific region. There was also a large Japanese delegation led by Label Shimbun. Following the success of the show, the Labelexpo Global Series group has announced that they will be returning to Guangzhou in 2012. 

Roger Pellow, Managing Director of the Labels Group said: “I am very happy with the first edition of the show. The Label industry in China is constantly evolving and is one of the most exciting segments of the printing industry. We were pleased to provide a platform for visitors and exhibitors to meet, network and do business and look forward to seeing the industry again at Labelexpo Asia, November 29th to December 2nd 2011.”
