Attendee registration is now live for Labelexpo Americas, which returns to the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, Rosemont, Chicago on September 9-11.
This show, marking its 25 anniversary, will have a greater focus on package printing and the brand owner.
The largest label and package printing tradeshow serving the North and South American markets, Labelexpo Americas 2014 will cover over 194,000 sq ft. With a growing exhibitor list, made up of more than 400 exhibiting companies, visitors will be able to meet with a range of label and package printing industry organizations including: AB Graphic International, Avery Dennison, Delta, Epson, Flint Group, Fujifilm, HP, Karlville Development, Mactac, Mark Andy, Nilpeter, Nuova Gidue, Omet, RotoMetrics, Screen USA, Sun Chemical, UPM Raflatac and Xeikon.
In addition to the conference program, Labelexpo Americas will include several feature areas to highlight new opportunities to converters and brand owners. The Package Printing Workshop will show label printers how to diversify into folding cartons and flexible packaging, while the Inkjet Trail will put some of the available inkjet technologies under the spotlight and compare their results when producing identical label designs on the same label stocks. Other new initiatives include Smart Mart where the latest smart and interactive label technology will be displayed, the Craft Beverage Day for artisan beer, wine and spirit producers, and the brand owners’ master class featuring industry experts Mike Fairley and Mike Ferrari.
Tasha Ventimiglia, event director for Labelexpo Americas, said: ‘We have made some exciting changes since 2012 and this will help to increase both our exhibitor and visitor numbers. Our main goal will be to engage with existing and new visitors and offer them more easy and effective ways to improve and add value to their businesses. We have teamed up with a number of industry partners and are confident that the new feature areas will help take our label and package printing industry partners’ businesses to the next level.’
