Label Summit launches into booming Indonesian market
The Labelexpo Global Series has announced a new event, Label Summit Indonesia 2013. Focusing on the growing Indonesian and South East Asian label market, the inaugural two-day conference and table top exhibition will take place 29-30 May 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 award-winning 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 has the full 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.
Label and package printing is consistently the fastest growing sector in the global printing marketplace and Indonesia’s label consumption currently stands at 100million square metres. 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.
“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,” explains Labelexpo managing director Roger Pellow. “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 South East Asian printers the unrivalled 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.”
