BROOKFIELD, WI | The Labelexpo Global Series announces Label Summit Indonesia, a new event focusing on the growing Indonesian and Southeast Asian label market. The inaugural two-day conference and table-top exhibition will take place May 29–30, 2013, at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua in Bali.
Alternating each year between Bali and Jakarta, it is the second new summit to be added to the portfolio following Label Summit Africa’s successful introduction earlier this year. Aimed at label and package printing converters/printers, brand owners and designers, the Summit reportedly has the support of the region’s trade bodies including the Indonesian Packaging Federation, as well as the industry’s major international manufacturers who have already committed to exhibit at the show.
According to Tarsus Group, the event’s organizer, label/package printing is consistently the fastest growing sector in the global printing marketplace, and Indonesia’s label consumption currently stands at 100 million sq m. A vibrant and continually growing industry, wet glue labels are still widespread with 65% usage, with demand for self-adhesive labels rapidly growing in popularity as converters switch technologies.
Roger Pellow, managing director at Tarsus Labels Group, says, “We’re extremely excited to be launching into the region, particularly as Indonesia is fast becoming one of the world’s most significant emerging markets. Many international companies are now doing business here because of the area’s increasing personal wealth, financial and political stability, and increasing demand for luxury and consumer brands. Label Summit Indonesia will give Southeast Asian printers the…opportunity to network and share best practice case studies with international converters and suppliers, while learning about global advances in label technologies that can aid the future growth of label printing across the Indonesian region.”
