Labelexpo Asia 2013 reached new visitor heights as it celebrated its tenth anniversary edition. Held at the Shanghai New International Expo Centre (SNIEC) during 3 – 6 December, the four day exhibition was attended by a huge number of high quality visitors to see the largest ever floor plan of exhibitors.

Welcoming 21,416 visitors, Labelexpo Asia 2013 achieved an increase of 18.8% over 2011’s show which attracted 18,019 attendees. Visitors came from 87 countries, up 11% from 74 countries in 2011. Covering 8,500sq/m of net space, with just under 300 exhibitors, the show was larger by 10% versus the last edition and also experienced its highest ever onsite level of space rebooking for 2015.

Many leading international and Asian companies exhibited including: Avery Dennison, Epson, Gallus, Lintec (Suzhou) Tech Corporation, Omet, Nuova GIDUE, UPM Raflatac, Xeikon, Zhe Jiang Wei Gang Machinery Co and Zhongtian Machinery Works Co. There were more than 70 running machines being demonstrated.

New products unveiled for the Asia Pacific region included Screen’s Truepress Jet L350UV digital label press, Avery Dennison’s TurnLock Laminating System and Brotech's new turret rewinder with automatic core take-off. Nuova GIDUE’s innovative M3 digital flexo press was a major attraction with packed demonstrations.

A two-day conference program ran alongside the exhibition and featured six well attended sessions. Topics included digital printing, beverage labeling and the importance of innovation. The opening keynote was delivered by Jukka-Pekka Haapanen, vice president Asia Pacific at UPM Raflatac, who gave an overview of the latest global trends and market forecast.

John Davy, show director of Labelexpo Asia commented: “This has been the perfect way to mark the show’s tenth anniversary with Labelexpo Asia 2013 being the biggest, busiest and best edition to date.

"We’ve had fantastic footfall with exhibitors reporting plentiful and strong sales leads while the exhibition floor and conference sessions have been packed for the duration of the event. We’ve also managed our highest ever rebook with 50% of space already confirmed for 2015 which is highly unusual for Asian exhibitions.

"This year’s success is a key indication that China’s economy is showing clear signs of recovery and is picking up pace. With so many market leading suppliers and manufacturers on board, there can be no doubt in the minds of the Chinese converting industry that this is the must-attend show for the label and package printing industry.”
