Labelexpo Europe 2003 closed on a high note in Brussels, Belgium with over 20,000 visitors making it the best-attended Labelexpo yet.
The biennial event is part of the Labelexpo Global Series, and was complemented by a series of conferences with 15 highly topical sessions.
Besides being a showcase for self-adhesive labeling, Labelexpo Europe, held on Sept. 24 – 27, now embraces all the narrow-web labeling technologies, including product decoration, shrink sleeves, film wraps and in-mould labels with reel-fed carton printing also figuring largely. In addition, the show reflected a general move from commodity markets into higher-margin alternatives by established converters. At the same time, growing globalization is opening up markets for printers and converters from Eastern Europe and many parts of Asia. Such trends contributed to a dynamic buzz that kept most of the 400+ exhibitors busy throughout the four-day duration.
