Labelexpo Europe Celebrates 35 Years with Record Attendance, Exhibit Space
Rob Verbruggen, Avery Dennison: “We at Avery Dennison are pleased with the volume and quality of visitors to our booth at Labelexpo Europe 2015. We exceeded our objectives and beat the performance of 2013. Our high-profile presence at the show enabled us to reinforce our position as an innovation leader, strengthen key customer relationships, and gain new business. We successfully launched a number of strong innovations like TrueCut, Aqua Opaque, AeroDress, Glass Recycling and Bio-based PE, that generated strong interest from both customers, press and editors and other stake holders. Many customers also found their way to the Smart Packaging Lab, where we provided demonstrations of various technologies, including: RFID tagging solutions, DirectLink near-field communication (NFC) technology that can send messages directly from the label to consumers’ smartphones, our Fibertracker anti-counterfeiting labeling solution, and TT Sensor Plus, a concept for a new time, temperature and tracking label.”
Michael Halfar, business development manager, Carl Ostermann Erben: “Carl Ostermann Erben GmbH had a record Labelexpo Europe this year! Beside the frequent visitors for the PASS-WERK automatic plate mounter (25 percent more demonstrations compared to Labelexpo 2013), visitors were interested in COE`s portfolio of plate, sleeve and repro solutions. This was added by a huge interest for the co-operation between COE and BST Eltromat for a faster workflow for inline spectral color measurement. Thanks to all that came to us and see you at Labelexpo Europe 2017!”
Sonia Arcos, technical sales director, Cheshire Anilox Technology: “Cheshire had its busiest ever Labelexpo Europe at its eleventh consecutive show. The award winning and innovative MaxFlo+ engraving which radically improves ink transfer and print quality generated huge interest with over 200 visitors to the stand. Many label printers from all across the world visited our stand to learn more about our innovative engravings which are specially designed to improve print quality in a number of challenging flexo applications. Labelexpo Europe was the first public showing of our new engraving the MaxFlo+ which has attracted a huge interest. A high point of the show was that MaxFlo+ was featured on ten presses including Mark Andy, Edale, Focus, Gonderflex, Gallus and Multitec. We were overwhelmed by the number of visitors and subsequent inquiries received. We met with key potential customers and remain encouraged that we will achieve an increase on sales from our attendance in the show”.
Sylvia Kooijman, marketing executive, Crown Van Gelder: “We have participated at Labelexpo Europe for the fourth time now. It gave us the chance to meet with a European and global audience. With a printing world migrating from analog to digital printing and inkjet in the spotlight, we see good opportunities for waterbased inkjet in the label and packaging market. Labelexpo has enabled us to have a good dialogue with many value chain partners and get valuable feedback on our waterbased inkjet printed and laminated sample material. We found good leads for continued development.”
Sarah Newell, marketing manager, Dantex: "We have always found Labelexpo Europe to be very focused on the requirements of both exhibitors and visitors. It’s a very good format for Dantex to showcase its product range, especially new product launches and innovations; visitors to the Dantex stand are invariably a good mix of both technical and commercial personnel from across the labels sector. In fact, we specifically chose Labelexpo Europe this year to launch our PicoColour Digital Press, which, along with our flexographic and letterpress processing equipment, was well received. We have been at Labelexpo Europe on every occasion since the show first started and we very much look forward to showing our latest products in Brussels in 2017, when it will be Dantex’s 50th anniversary. There is no more fitting place to celebrate this important milestone than with our friends and colleagues in the label industry.”
Frank Termeulen, marketing, DG press ServiceS BV: “DG press reports a very successful week at Labelexpo where we explained and promoted the benefits of printing short run flexible packaging, IML and shrink sleeve labels with the Thallo. We greeted many of our existing contacts and friends from the community and met a lot of new prospects during the show. An important trend noticed is the overlapping of narrow-web, mid-web and wide-web at Labelexpo and increasing interest in web offset for flexible packaging.”
Michael Panzeri, vice president, D.P.R. srl: “D.P.R. announced a successful Labelexpo Europe. The European organization joined forces to present the benefits of D.P.R.’s digital label cutters and laminators, welcomed hundreds of show visitors to the stand, booked several label finisher orders, and signed multiple reseller agreements with companies from Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific. D.P.R. promoted the flagship Taurus and Aries laser cutting systems as well as the Scorpio Series digital label finishers which are now available in EMEA / Asia Pacific and in the Americas by the end of the year. We were satisfied to welcome such a high volume of visitors to the stand. With the positive reception of D.P.R.’s label finishing equipment, the company achieved the goal of increasing awareness of its product offerings in the label printing industry."
Helmuth Munter, segment manager, Durst Label & Package Printing: “Labelexpo Europe 2015 provided a great opportunity for Durst to gain new customers, such as Adesa from France, while UK-based company, The Label Makers, ordered its second Tau 330 at the show. Customers and visitors saw our latest developments in the label and package printing segment, where we had a slogan, ‘Tau 330 – Configure Your Digital Future Today. They were able to see for themselves how our successful Tau 330 inkjet printer has managed to bring inkjet technology on par with other production methods. In contrast to this industrial scale end-to-end set up, showgoers were also extremely interested in Durst's introduction of the Tau 330E at Labelexpo, which paves the way for small- and medium-sized companies to enter into digital production. Digital production in the label and package printing segment is a reality and we are making it happen.”
