Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series, said:
“The health and safety of exhibitors, visitors and staff remains our top priority and we have been monitoring the ongoing impact of coronavirus/COVID-19 in India over the last few months. Postponing Labelexpo India by a year means that we will be able to run the safest and highest quality event the industry expects from us.
“In taking this decision we considered our wider show portfolio and acted on the advice of our local partners, the venue, the health authorities, and exhibitors. We are grateful to them all for their continued support and look forward to working with them on the 2021 edition of the show. Crucially, this event – as is the case with our other Labelexpo shows around the world – will play a vital role in driving the economic recovery of the region’s label and package printing industry, plus its supply chain, post coronavirus/COVID-19.”
Kuldip Goel, president of the Label Manufacturers Association of India (LMAI), echoed this: “From a converter perspective, I, as well as the industry, are very much looking forward to Labelexpo India 2021, which will be an extremely important catalyst in the industry’s recovery post coronavirus/COVID-19. We are delighted to lend our support to this much-needed event and urge the industry at all levels to get involved – suppliers, manufacturers and converters.”
The 2018 edition of Labelexpo India reported 9,851 attendees from 55 countries, its biggest increase and largest to date. 250 exhibitors took part.
