Christina Neth, CALOR Gesellschaft für: "In 2013, we at CALOR continued the good tradition of meeting our long-standing customers at Labelexpo Europe and presenting our latest developments in thermal transfer ribbons. Visitors showed specific interest in our wide color range, which now includes resin qualities for outdoor applications. They also had a close look at our samples for high-resolution white print on black surfaces. We were glad to welcome many new potential customers. In case they could not find their ideal ribbon among our 35 black and 85 colored qualities, we discussed their particular requirements with them and can now work on the development of "their" thermal transfer ribbon. Once again, Labelexpo Europe was the perfect platform for keeping or getting in touch with customers."
Sonia Arcos, Cheshire Anilox Technology: "Labelexpo Europe 2013 was the first public showing of our new engraving the maxfloUV which has attracted huge interest because of its print versatility and innovative way of resolving the long standing problem of UV spitting. Visitor numbers to our stand far surpassed Labelexpo Europe 2011 and the number of new contacts made and sales orders placed have increased beyond expectations. Many label printers from all across the world visited Cheshire Anilox stand to learn more about its highly innovative engravings and how Cheshire is working with printers to manage the trends that are changing the way 'print' will be purchased and used in the future. Some of the products that proved popular with visitors were the MaxfloUV Anilox, shown in Europe for the first time, the easyflo hd for mimicking screen printed opaque whites and the proflo Anilox for full HD printing."
Conor O'Kelly, Crest Solutions: "This year we were looking for the optimum platform to launch our new product for thermal transfer label inspection, PrintInspector. We were impressed with the high level of attendance at the last Labelexpo Europe show, not to mention the calibre of visitors and exhibitors. So we decided to exhibit for the first time there and officially launch the product. We couldn't be happier with the results. PrintInspector was excellently received and we left the show with new contacts and qualified leads that would have required much more time to gather using other avenues. From a practical point of view, the organization of the show was professional and painless, with Tarsus and Labelexpo media contacts doing all they could to help and promote exhibitors at the show. Overall, this was a great experience for us and one we would be keen to repeat."
Mike Huss, Delta Industrial: "Delta Industrial found Labelexpo Europe to be one of our best label industry events of 2013; it was great to meet so many people from a variety of industries who were interested in the latest converting and finishing equipment. Our booth was busy and our demonstration seemed to be well received as people were looking for ways to increase their productivity and minimize their material waste. Overall Delta was pleased with the number and quality of new leads we generated."
Sara Ascari, Diavy Holography: "Diavy Holography Technologies would like to thank the huge number of visitors at Labelexpo Europe 2013 for their interest in our company! For us, Labelexpo Europe 2013 has been a great success, so we look forward to seeing you again at Labelexpo Europe 2015!"
Philip Easton, Domino: "We were delighted by Labelexpo Europe 2013; our visitors were up 60% on the 2011 show, helped by the Inkjet Trail. It is also good to see the Labelexpo team continuing to innovate and refresh the visitor experience."
Paul Cripps, EFI EMEA: "This year's Labelexpo Europe was the most exciting and the most rewarding since EFI has been exhibiting at the show. Visitor numbers were up significantly, not just from our own region but also with growing attendance from Asia and Latin America. And the people didn't come just to kick the tires, they came ready to invest. The new Jetrion with full LED curing and our company's unique approach to integrated lean manufacturing gave us record sales leads that will keep our teams busy in the months to come."
