Labelexpo Americas 2016 Reaches New Heights
The 15th edition of Labelexpo Americas broke all previous show records, as over 17,400 label and package printing professionals attended the show to help it to an 8.5 percent attendance increase over the previous 2014 show. The event was held from September 13-15 at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois.
In addition to record attendance, the show floor was the largest in history at 201,000 square feet.
Featuring more than 455 exhibitors including over 100 first-time exhibitors, the show recorded its highest ever number of product launches. Complementing the vast range of new product announcements, the show floor was also packed with live demonstrations including two new feature areas.
“The label and package printing industry is really galvanized at the moment and we saw that very clearly at Labelexpo Americas with a record number of product launches being unveiled on the show floor,” says Tasha Ventimiglia, Labelexpo Americas event director. “Package printing is coming of age as is digital printing technology and this year’s show had a real buzz around shrink sleeve production and applications. Converters are upping their game all the time with significant investment in their product offering and a constant honing of their commercial capabilities, so Labelexpo really offers them the best place to catch up with all the latest techniques, solutions and trends. The show has yet again been a massive success and the continued rise in attendee numbers and positive feedback are testament to Labelexpo Americas’ quality and variety.”
