Labelexpo Europe 2013 dates announced

Labelexpo Europe 2013 is set to return to Brussels Expo in Belgium between 24-27 September. Now in its 32nd year, the biennial fair is widely regarded as the label industry's flagship event and is again supported by FINAT.

2013's show moves from its traditional Wednesday-to-Saturday slot following careful visitor analysis and extensive consultation with exhibitors. As Roger Pellow, Labelexpo managing director explains: "Having surveyed 2011's exhibitors, 84 percent of them said they would prefer the show to be held during the working week. Historic visitor figures support the move too; showing a small decline then static visitor numbers on the Saturday, while the weekdays have steadily experienced significantly increased footfall."

He continues: "As the must-attend event for anyone in the label sector and product decorating industry, Labelexpo Europe remains the major platform for seeing new equipment and materials, doing business and networking. Labelexpo Europe 2013 will return excellent value for money and allow exhibitors and visitors alike to maximize their time at the show more easily than ever."

In total, 28,636 visitors from 118 countries attended 2011's show while it attracted 550 exhibitors. The showcase opportunity for new press launches as well as inks and substrates, The Labelexpo Global Series team anticipates the 2013 show growing beyond the six halls of floor space for the first time.
