Labelexpo Mexico 2023 hailed ‘astounding success’

Labelexpo Mexico 2023 hailed ‘astounding success’

First dedicated Mexico label and package printing show attracts almost 6,000 visitors from across the region
The inaugural Labelexpo Mexico 2023 exhibition, held at the World Trade Center in Mexico City, has been hailed an ‘astounding’ success, attracting 5,878 visitors from 46 countries and 145 exhibitors.
While the great majority of visitors (80 percent) were from Mexico, there were significant numbers from the United States, China, Columbia, Brazil, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Peru, Ecuador and Argentina.
The show featured a wide range of working machinery, with Nilpeter demonstrating its FA-17 printing shrink sleeves, and digital presses on display from Mark Andy, Epson, Konica Minolta, Durst and Pulisi.
Tasha Ventimiglia, Labelexpo Americas group director, commented: “We saw at the show the trends driving the growth of the Mexican label industry. For example, the tequila market is booming not just in Mexico but in the US as well, with lots of highly embellished labels from challenger brands appearing on store shelves. And a lot of foreign investment is happening in Mexico, mostly due to its strategic position to serve the US market, with international companies like Tesla and others building plants in Mexico, creating further opportunities for local label converters.”
Labelexpo Mexico 2023 event manager Mirco Mazzarella added, “This was a fantastic debut event and I would like to thank our exhibitors, visitors and staff onsite for helping to make this first Labelexpo Mexico an astounding success. Our suppliers were very impressed by the quality and number of converters, particularly from outside Mexico, and we had a few suppliers commenting on the number of flexible packaging printers in attendance. Over 70 percent of exhibitors rebooked for Labelexpo Mexico 2025, with the majority of those upgrading their space.’
The next edition of Labelexpo Mexico will be held in Guadalajara in 2025. Label Summit Latin America has now been confirmed for Bogota, Colombia from March 12-13, 2024.

Customised void labels: The right effect for every application

The global market for counterfeit medicines is around 200 billion US dollars. Every year it grows by about 20 percent - twice as fast as the legal pharmaceutical market. Counterfeits and manipulations pose potential health risks to patients. For the pharmaceutical industry, this results in major economic losses and damage to its image.
