The organizers of Labelexpo India 2018 are hosting a series of evening forums across South Asia during late August to late October in conjunction with several industry trade bodies representing the package printing industry. Held in India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh, the seven events are aimed exclusively at offset printers who are thinking about diversifying their businesses into label and package printing.
The forums, ranging in size from 60 to 200 attendees, will give printers an unmissable regional opportunity to find out what label printing and attending Labelexpo India has to offer their business. Each event will feature a tailored seminar given by expert speakers from Labelexpo India's industry partners and supporting organizations. Labelexpo India will present the latest global and regional trends, while speakers from exhibitor companies will share customer case studies and top tips on realizing and maximizing the commercial benefits of offering label printing. This will be followed by a networking dinner.

Jade Grace, Labelexpo India 2018 event director, said: "We are delighted to be able to offer almost double the number of similar regional events we hosted in the 2016 run-up to our last Labelexpo India, and across three countries. This is testament to the rapid development we have seen in the printing industry in South Asia over the last two years. As the appetite for labels and package printing continues undiminished and innovations in technology develop apace, it has become the biggest growth market. The forums are a unique opportunity to gain a taster of what Labelexpo India 2018 holds in store, and for printers across the region to learn from, and collaborate with the experts. We strongly recommend early booking for these events as places are strictly limited."
