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.”
