The first Label Summit in Indonesia will focus on the booming Indonesian and South East Asian label market. The inaugural two-day conference and table-top exhibition will take place on May 29-30, at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua in Bali.
The event is 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.
Alternating each year between Bali and Jakarta, it is the second new summit to be added to the portfolio following Label Summit Africa’s successful introduction earlier this year.
Roger Pellow, managing director, Labelexpo says “We’re excited to be launching into the region, particularly as Indonesia is fast becoming one of the world’s most significant emerging markets. 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 the South East Asian printers the unrivalled opportunity to network and share the best practice case studies with international converters and suppliers, whilst learning about global advances in label technologies that can aid the future growth of label printing across the Indonesian region.”
Indonesia’s label consumption currently stands at an estimated 100 million square metres a year. A continually growing industry, wet glue labels are still widespread with 65 per cent usage, with demand for self-adhesive labels rapidly growing in popularity as converters switch technologies.
