On 4 March 2021, the Tarsus Group, organizer of the Labelexpo Global Series of exhibitions and summits, announced that Labelexpo Europe is again postponed and will now occur at the Brussels Expo Centre on 26-29 April 2022.

Meanwhile, the next edition of Labelexpo Americas will take place on 13-15 September 2022 at the Donald E Stevens Conventional Center in Rosemont, Chicago. At the same time, Tarsus announced a new event, Label Congress 2021, to take place from 29 September to 1 October 2021, also at the Donald E. Stevens Convention Center.

The Label Congress 2021 includes conference sessions covering all areas of the label and package print technology and markets, an educational stream, Label Academy Live, and an exhibition of new technology, with leading suppliers displaying their latest equipment, software and services. The congress and educational sessions will also be broadcast to a global audience.

Label Congress 2021 – a physical gathering for the US label industry

Lisa Milburn, managing director of the Tarsus Labels, Packaging and Brand Print group, commented, “Due to continuing uncertainty about the speed of the vaccine rollout in Europe and the ability of our global visitors to travel to Brussels, we have made the decision, in consultation with our exhibitors, to postpone Labelexpo Europe until April 2022. Label Congress 2021 will be our first physical gathering for the US label industry since the pandemic began, and we look forward to welcoming attendees to this keynote event.”

Chris Ellison, managing director of OPM Labels & Packaging group and president of European label federation FINAT, commented, “It is definitely the right decision to move Labelexpo Europe to April 2022, when we should have returned to some sort of normality as regards international travel and social mixing. I, for one, cannot wait. I am really missing the buzz from walking the aisles of the world’s leading label show, seeing first-hand new technology from the world’s leading suppliers, meeting with old friends, and making new contacts.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
