Texte AlternatifThis builds on the highly popular annual Label Summit Latin America, which rotates between three locations, and the extremely successful Labelexpo Americas, which takes place every two years at Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Chicago. Labelexpo Mexico 2021 will also include the co-located 2021 edition of Brand Print Mexico and will be supported by key trade bodies AMETIQ and ACOBAN.

Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series, explained: “Labelexpo Mexico joins our portfolio of hugely successful Labelexpo trade shows. At Labelexpo Americas 2018, we saw a 95 percent jump in visitor numbers from Latin America since 2016, while simultaneously, our Label Summit is expanding with each edition. Both events are proof that the label and package printing industry in the emerging market of Latin America is booming. So introducing a dedicated three-day Labelexpo to the region is the next logical step. It absolutely won’t replace either event, but fully complement them”.

In 2018, the label market in Mexico was worth $452m. This is forecast to grow by 2022 to $536.1m – an increase of 18.6%*. Within the above figure, most growth is forecast in shrink sleeves (34.5%); in-mold labels (21.3%) and self-adhesive labels (20%)*. As a whole, Latin America is a rapidly growing diverse region, investing heavily in the latest technology to compete in world markets and meet local demand. The market was estimated to be worth $1.79bn in 2018, and is forecast to reach $2.08bn in 2022, a 16% increase in four years*.
