Labelexpo Americas 2008, the largest event for the label, web printing, product decoration and converting industry in the Americas, took place in Chicago between 9 and 11 September.

Despite the current unstable economic situation, Labelexpo Americas proved the label industry is still a resilient and innovative sector. The show demonstrated an excellent quality of attendees, with numbers exceeding 12,000. By the end of the show over 80% of the exhibition space had already been rebooked for Labelexpo Americas 2010.

The show saw 420 national and international suppliers bringing their latest developments in technology and materials to demonstrate to the North American market. There were many presses launched by the market leaders: Nilpeter introduced its new FG-line of UV flexo presses; Mark Andy unveiled the Comco C1 ProGlide and demonstrated its updated XP5000 shaftless press.

EFI Jetrion showcased its 4000 UV-inkjet printer; HP Indigo debuted to the North American market its ws6000 digital-offset press; Xeikon for the first time in the Americas demonstrated its new digital label press, the 3300; Epson's new digital label press was on display showing its integration with the EskoArtwork and Kodak pre-press software/hardware and the Grafisk Maskinfabrik DC330 converter.

For suppliers the show was not only a great launch pad, but also the most effective medium to make sales and set up new partnerships. Sales orders kept coming in, and the suppliers witnessed a lot of purchasing power coming from Latin America and Eastern Europe. Nilpeter sold 29 presses at the show, five of which were sold in the first three hours of the show!

Among the most popular areas of the show were the newly introduced feature areas - the Digital Printing Experience and Gather on the Green.

The Digital Printing Experience pavilion, located in Hall F, gathered the leading suppliers in digital printing technology - HP, Xeikon, EFI Jetrion, Epson, Impika, Degrava, Sun Chemical, Xaar, Konika Minolta to name a few.

The pavilion had more digital printing technology than ever showcased at any Labelexpo event or any other converting event before. Attendees were offered the best pick of digital presses, as well as digital pre-press software, platemaking and and post-press finishing, with live demonstrations running continuously.

In addition, the pavilion had a series of seminars and panel discussions, which focused on the present and future of digital printing and its role in the development of the label industry worldwide. The pavilion enjoyed good visitor traffic during all hours of the show giving suppliers plenty opportunities to demonstrate their groundbreaking technologies and discuss in detail their products' offering.

Sustainability was an important theme of many conference sessions and also during various presentations at suppliers' booths. The conference program was organized in partnership with the TLMI.
