Labelexpo Global Series has confirmed a series of free roadshows in Cincinnati, Orange County and Toronto that will give label, packaging and commercial printers a preview of the technology on show at Labelexpo Americas 2022 later this year.
The roadshows will take place in Cincinnati, Orange County and Toronto and are only open to printers, end-users and trade press. The roadshows are supported by Gold sponsors HP, Epson and ABG and Silver sponsor Xeikon.
Labelexpo Americas 2022 show director Tasha Ventimiglia commented: ‘We will be working with the TLMI, key local printing associations, and sponsors to bring an educational insight into the world of labels and package printing all the opportunities available within this dynamic industry.’
The roadshow kicks off in Orange County on July 20, 2022, hosted by Fullerton College, which offers hands-on training on modern high-speed equipment, with specialist streams in print. Working closely with the Printing Industries Association of Southern California (PIASC), this roadshow will provide unique insights into the workforce issues surrounding the labels and package print industries. Printers will also hear about trends and case studies throughout the one-day conference program.
The Cincinnati leg of the roadshow takes place on July 28, 2022. It will be hosted by Haney Packaging, a ‘packaging micro-factory’, providing a one-stop-shop from pack development to prototype, test marketing, and everything in between. Micro factory customers have access to what Haney describes as ‘the industry’s largest library of recyclable and compostable packaging solutions.’ The roadshow will include a tour of Haney’s impressive facility, while supplier partners will cover industry trends, end-user case studies, and specialist technical subjects in the one-day conference program.
The final leg of the roadshow takes place in Toronto on August 3, 2022, at the High Park Brewery, Toronto’s first ‘collaborative’ brewery, a Certified Benefit Corporation, which forms part of a global movement of people using business as a force for good. Roadshow delegates will hear about its partnership with a local designer and printer to develop a new identity for the brewery, including its community links and commitment to sustainability. This will complement a core program focusing on trends and critical technology advances in label printing today.
‘At Labelexpo Americas 2022, the labels and package print industry will finally reunite under the Labelexpo banner for the first time since the pandemic began. These roadshows will give printers a unique insight into the vast range of exciting new technology which will be launched at the show and will deliver critical market trends information to help guide converters’ future investment decisions.,’ concluded Lisa Milburn, managing director of Labelexpo Global Series.
