Label Summit Closes Chilean Edition

LONDON, UK | The 14th edition of Label Summit Latin America, held May 16–17, attracted 815 attendees as it closed at the Espacio Riesco in Santiago, Chile. According to the Tarsus Group, organizer of the show, the two-day event’s combination of informative panel discussions and technical and practical presentations proved popular, with a higher than expected number of delegates from the region’s south attending. 

Held in Chile for the first time, the Summit’s agenda addressed a number of topics including market trends and challenges, the application of new technologies, and aspects of the wine labeling industry. It opened with a keynote presentation from Avery Dennison, which provided detailed analysis of the region’s wine labeling sector with a study of the marcoeconomic trends impacting it and where growth opportunities lie for the market looking ahead.

Other topics included trends in labels, shrink sleeves, flexibles, and folding cartons, and developments in trading in Chile and the Southern Cone; mergers and acquisitions; new technologies; developing a blueprint for success; and positioning businesses to overcome national and international competition.

The second day offered a look at attracting skilled labor and retaining employees; the ever-rising importance of the environment and strategies for becoming more sustainable; smart products such as augmented reality and RFID applications; and wine label design.

Running alongside the conference, show visitors were also able to source new suppliers and network with more than 70 exhibiting companies at a table-top exhibition.

Tasha Ventimiglia, Americas event director says, “As our first event in Chile, this year’s Summit was very highly anticipated. We are very pleased to report that it has been our second biggest-ever Summit to date with attendees coming from 28 countries, including high numbers of Argentinian, Brazilian, and Peruvian converters. The Summit has been very constructive and given us an excellent chance to better understand the Chilean market with our speakers sharing their first-class insight and expertise. We hope our attendees have taken away new ideas and tips to implement in their own plants and help move the industry even further forward here. We look forward to returning to Guadalajara next April.”
