Sustainability, self-adhesive label materials and digital embellishment are three educational themes shaping the forthcoming Labelexpo Southeast Asia, taking place February 9-11, 2023, at BITEC, Bangkok, Thailand, with learning opportunities at the three-day event in February to include a workshop, show floor themed café, and a trail highlighting innovations from one of the industry’s fastest-growing areas.
The technical half-day Label Academy led workshop takes place on the final day of the show, Saturday February 11, focusing on the topic of self-adhesive label materials. Over six in-depth sessions, the workshop will cover: PS labels and the circular economy, given by Darren Milligan, VP/GM, ASEAN, Avery Dennison; paper and synthetic paper face materials; release liner substrates from Elkem; exploring different adhesive types; filmic face materials; and testing methods and procedures.
The show floor will also feature a Sustainability in Print Café, which will showcase some of the ways in which technology and products are already starting to reduce waste and contribute to a better environment. Visitors will be able to engage with projects and case studies, as well as learn how these can make a difference to their label and package printing business.
Thirdly, a Digital Embellishment Trail, recently seen at Labelexpo Americas 2022 and Labelexpo India 2022, aims to highlight the area of decoration and coating techniques. Examples and samples of these technologies will be available to view across the show.
