“I have been encouraged by the number of Australians and New Zealanders who say they are attending Labelexpo Americas,” says Scott. “The venue – the Donald E Stephens Convention Centre (formerly Rosemont) is very close to O’Hare International airport, so very convenient to access. Downtown Chicago is just 16 miles south.
There are five halls covering approximately 70,000 square metres with over 400 exhibitors – anyone who is anyone in the label industry. Screen is in Hall F.”
The Labelexpo series of exhibitions have been hugely successful since the first one in London, 1980 and now cover Europe, Americas, Asia, India, SE Asia and Latin America, under the ownership of Tarsus Group Inc, a FTSE-listed $200 million UK company.
“General printing trade fairs have suffered and shrunk, or even disappeared as with the case of Ipex, but Labelling is still a healthy growth sector. Labelling relates directly to population growth and consumption of branded goods, foodstuffs and beverages, so it is unlikely to suffer the contraction in general commercial printing,” observes Scott.
“At Labelexpo Americas, Screen with feature working demonstrations of two Truepress Jet L350UV Plus Presses - one with standard Ink and one with Low Migration ink targeted at food packaging. Both will be with CMYK + White + Orange + Chiller Roller and can run at up to sixty linear metres per minute. Finishing will be on a SMAG converter. We will also show our PlateRite FX870 CtP for filmless production of flexographic and letterpress plates – this CtP device has already enjoyed several local installations through our dealer Jet Technologies.”
Screen is also partnering with other companies on its booth: OneVision, SMAG, Eizo Monitors, UPM Raflatac, Avery Dennison, Wasau Coatings and Spinnaker.
Scott invites all ANZ visitors to drop by the Screen stand: “David and I will be there the whole three days and we warmly welcome all visitors from our region.”
