New Labelexpo Show to Debut in Mexico in 2021
The Labelexpo Global Series of trade shows for the label and package printing industry is launching a new major show serving the Latin American market: Labelexpo Mexico, set for June 23-25, 2021, at World Trade Center Mexico City.
Labelexpo Mexico joins a portfolio of other successful Labelexpo trade shows, including Label Summit Latin America, which rotates among three locations; and Labelexpo Americas, which takes place biennially at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center outside Chicago. Launching a show in Mexico was a logical next step, according to company officials.
“At Labelexpo Americas 2018, we saw a 95 percent jump in visitor numbers from Latin America since 2016, while simultaneously, our Label Summit is expanding with each edition,” said Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series. “Both events are proof that the label and package printing industry in the emerging market of Latin America is booming.”
She added, “Introducing a dedicated three-day Labelexpo to the region is the next logical step. It absolutely won’t replace either event, but fully complement them.”
The primary audience for Labelexpo Mexico will be label and package printers in the greater Mexico region. The show will also offer printers and brand owners access to a platform for sourcing solutions for varied printing needs, including point of purchase, collation packs, outdoor advertising, fleet graphics and direct mail.
Labelexpo Mexico 2021 will be co-located with Brand Print Mexico and supported by key trade bodies AMETIQ and ACOBAN.
“The co-location of Brand Print Mexico will be a fantastic asset to Labelexpo Mexico, as it allows us to strategically connect the entire print supply chain from a single place,” said Milburn. “Mexico has the region’s largest label and package printing market, set to grow by 18 percent over the next few years [according to Smithers Pira], so it is the perfect location for our new show.”
She continued, “Labelexpo Mexico has huge potential to become the largest event of its kind in Latin America, and we are tremendously excited to be bringing Labelexpo to this part of the world.”
Labelexpo Global Series’ portfolio also includes Labelexpo Europe, Labelexpo Southeast Asia, Labelexpo Asia and Labelexpo India.
