Industry Indicators Labelexpo Americas 2012 Preview the technology of tomorrow, Exhibited today By steve Deering Labelexpo of the Americas has always been about the latest and greatest technologies and product innova- tions. This year, 2012, will be no different. With new materials, cutting edge processes, and high added value solutions, attendees will witness, first hand, demonstrations of technologies that will change the face of the business. The label industry has weathered the storm of the reces- sion. And, while it may still be raining, growth within the indus- try has resulted through the adaptation of new technologies, through mergers and acquisitions, and through being the home of some of the most innovative companies in the world. Thanks in large part to these factors; the label industry has seen steady, modest growth—within labels and beyond. From September11-13 Labelexpo of the Americas 2012 is taking place at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, IL. With more than 400 exhibitors, 12,000 attendees and a two-day conference schedule, the show is the defin- ing moment of the year for the label industry. At this year’s exhibition, attendees will meet label and narrow web machin- ery manufacturers, industry service suppliers, prepress and production technology suppliers, and substrate and adhesive suppliers. They will also discover new technology, learn to focus on the customer, improve the entire supply chain and learn how to enter fresh niche markets. And much more.
