Registration for Labelexo Europe 2019 has been opened. The show, which celebrates its 40th anniversary this year, will introduce three new feature areas as it returns to Brussels Expo in Belgium.

Under the tagline ‘Move your business forward’, the key focus of the 2019 edition will be on improving business strategy and moving the industry forward. The show is again supported and endorsed by the trade bodies FINAT, EUWID, Febelgra, SPPES, UNFEA and VskE.

Running alongside the exhibition are three new show features. The Flexible Packaging Arena is a demonstration and overview of two press lines – one conventional and one digital – producing indirect food contact flexible packaging to the latest GMP standards. Visitors will gain new insights from the industry-wide UVFoodSafe initiative into best practice for UV curing onto indirect food contact labels and flexible packaging.  

At the Brand Innovation Showcase, brand owner visitors will learn the secrets to achieving stand-out brand presence, explore award-winning label and packaging designs, and take part in an exclusive tour of key supplier stands where they will experience live demonstrations of the technology and innovations that could help turn their vision into reality.

At the Sustainability Insight Café area of the show, visitors will be able to see the latest sustainable products and services designed to support a more environmentally conscious label and package printing industry.

Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series, commented, ‘This is a milestone year for Labelexpo as it celebrates an incredible 40 years, so we wanted to mark that by creating our biggest, most ambitious show yet. This is a fast-moving industry that never stands still, but fundamental to that process is having the right tools and the right strategy, and we wanted to reflect that in this year’s show theme.’ She added, ‘We are especially proud to introduce the three new show features this year. We are very much looking forward to meeting with exhibitors and visitors over the course of the show.’

Spread across nine exhibitions halls, over 600 confirmed exhibitors will be taking part.
