The first Labelexpo Connections meetings are set to take place Wednesday, September 26 at participating exhibitor stands.
This is a new feature this year’s show – and a first for the Labelexpo Global Series. Labelexpo Connections is an attendee and exhibitor 1:1 appointment program, which aims to fast-track connections to new business in the label and package printing industry through opt-in meetings. There were 140 exhibitors who signed up for Labelexpo Connections, and 800 attendees.
Show attendees underwent a matching process with exhibiting companies when they registered for Labelexpo. The matching process will lead to a series of 1:1 business meetings at Labelexpo Americas 2018 on Wednesday. This has been added to enable attendees to maximize their time at the show by connecting with the people they want to meet to enhance their business.
Those who connected will meet on stands with the attendees and exhibitors they matched with. All attendees and exhibitors who opted into the program should log into their matching portal to view their appointments, or stop by the Labelexpo Connections information desk in the lobby for a schedule of their appointments.
Tasha Ventimiglia, Labelexpo Americas event director, commented: ‘Labelexpo Americas is all about the experience, and we wanted to build on that by launching several new features at this year’s show, to ensure that it remains fresh and relevant as the industry evolves. Firstly, we know that a driving factor for people choosing to visit the show is the opportunity to network and make new business connections, so we want to help them make the most of this opportunity and plan their time efficiently through the Labelexpo Connections personalized 1:1 appointment program.
