Labelexpo Europe Review

Labelexpo reports largest, most international edition to date

The landmark 40th anniversary edition of Labelexpo Europe 2019 has closed on a high note, with its largest, most international show held to date. A total of 693 exhibitors took part in the show, which took place between 24-27 September, at Brussels Expo in Belgium.

Spread over nine halls and covering almost 40,000 sqm of floorspace, up from 2017, the show presented the largest offering of label and package printing technologies and live demonstrations seen to date. This included the fast-growing areas of hybrid printing, flexible packaging and automation. Poor weather didn’t deter 37,903 visitors from 140 countries flocking to the four-day show – a substantial increase on 125 in 2017. India, China and Japan were especially well represented with large visitor delegations. Eastern Europe also showed a stronger representation compared to 2017, in particular, Croatia, with a 51 percent increase, Lithuania (36 percent), Romania (25 percent), and Russia (14 percent). Brazil also saw a 14 percent increase in visitors compared to 2017.
