Corinne Rougeau, Taghleef Industries : "Labelexpo Europe 2013 really exceeded our expectations and targets in terms of quantity and quality leads. An extremely high number of Label converters/printers especially from overseas came to our stand to meet with our international team and find out more about our global label portfolio. A European show with a true global dimension. Not to mention that it was also the opportunity to witness the trends and latest innovations in the printing and converting of labels and flexible packaging. Well done Labelexpo. Ti will be back in 2015!"
Jürgen Dostal, Tesa: "Tesa can look back to a very successful Labelexpo Europe 2013 in Brussels. Leads generated exceeded 25% plus in comparison to stable numbers in the years before. Besides a new foam hardness in tesa's Steelmaster mounting tape range, tesa 52018 Softprint x-Soft, visitors were especially interested in a brand new tool called tesa Foam Advisor. According to the plate type, thickness and motif to be printed the tool gives advice for the correct foam hardness to be used for optimum printing results."
Carmen Burgo, Torraspapel - Lecta Group: "This has been the best Labelexpo Europe for Torraspapel - Lecta ever. We have registered a record number of visits to our stand and our range of papers for labels, especially Adestor self-adhesive materials and Metalvac metallized papers have been such a success! We also want to highlight the optimism in the sector."
Phil Hall, Troika Systems Limited: "Labelexpo Europe 2013 exceeded all our expectations with over 50% growth in qualified leads over the previous exhibition. Knowing there is now an absolute volumetric standard for anilox measurements was without a big draw for many printers and also for the majority of anilox manufacturers. The launch of the new P2P HD QC tool for plate makers and printers was also very positively received with serious leads coming from over 24 countries. The buzz and overall feel of the exhibition was the most positive we can remember over the past three Labelexpos."
Cathy Gamble, Typerite: "Typerite Ltd's presence at Labelexpo Europe 2013 proved invaluable. We were able to showcase our range of metallic colored thermal transfer ribbons in wax/resin and resin. They proved to be extremely popular and sparked a lot of interest with visitors. Typerite has a range of over 50+ colors which makes it unique from other thermal transfer ribbon manufacturers. Typerite received over 500 inquiries from Labelexpo Europe ranging from as far away as South America, South Africa, New Zealand, Australia, United States and Europe. Typerite signed one major distributor deal with a leading label manufacturer. The company also secured a substantial contract with a world leading pharmaceutical supplier."

Labelexpo Europe has become a truly global meeting point, where the technical expertise meets the people working in this industry. It is the best possible place to let the customers feel our promise "Engineered with Raflatouch"."
Joaquin Vall-llosera Costa, VELA: "At Labelexpo Europe VELA presented the machine CTM400 to cut inmold labels, shrink sleeve, stretch sleeve, polypropylene labels. The fair visitors have appreciated a lot the great versatility of this machine with a high speed and excellent cut quality for all types of labels. As a result, many customers are interested in our machines. The interest has not been only in the machine CTM400, but also in our machines for shrink and stretch sleeve production. The volume of visits has been very high and we have closed orders for five machines in different countries. Labelexpo Europe has allowed us to spread out our presence in the world and that the visitors know the VELA solutions to produce with quality and productivity in these markets."
