Labelexpo Southeast Asia to be Launched in 2018

LONDON, UK | Tarsus Group, the organizer of the Labelexpo Global Series events, has announced the launch of Labelexpo Southeast Asia. Focused on the region’s strong and fast growing market, the latest edition to the worldwide event portfolio will take place May 10–12, 2018, at BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand. 

Organizers say the three-day trade show will attract label and package printing converters/printers, brand owners, designers, and industry suppliers. Large delegations are expected to attend from Thailand, Indonesia, Vietnam, Malaysia, the Philippines, Singapore, and across the wider region including Japan, South Korea, Australasia, and Taiwan.

Showcasing the latest label and packaging solutions, more than 200 exhibitors are expected to participate at the inaugural event. The event, which is endorsed by the Indonesian Packaging Federation, will also encompass an educational and topical conference program which will cover the latest trends, printing techniques, and technologies.

Lisa Milburn, managing director of the Labelexpo Global Series, says, “We carefully select the geographies our events serve, and after months of focused industry research, we are delighted to announce this new addition to the Labelexpo portfolio. Label consumption is pitched at around 6 to 7 percent growth, so the Southeast Asian market offers excellent opportunities for sustainable commercial growth. The region has a collective population of around 640 million and comprises ten very diverse and dynamic economies which are each in different stages of transition. Key growth drivers include high inward investment, a young demographic, and a burgeoning middle class which is massively driving consumer consumption….”

With the advent of Labelexpo Southeast Asia, Labelexpo Asia in Shanghai will now be renamed Labelexpo China to reflect the show’s visitor demographics.
