  • Final count down to Label Summit Indonesia

    The conference program for Labelexpo Global Series’ brand new event, Label Summit Indonesia 2013, has been revealed, with registration now open for the very first regional Labelexpo industry event to be held in Bali.

    The inaugural Label Summit Indonesia – of which Print21 is the official media partner – will be held at the Westin Resort Nusa Dua in Bali from 29 to 30 May. While the event will be held in the eastern Indonesian province for its first outing, it is intended to alternate each year between Bali and Jakarta.

    Focusing on the label and package printing industry, the Summit will comprise a mix of technical presentations, real life business case studies and the latest industry insight and business intelligence into market trends, conditions and challenges.

    The Summit kicks off with a roundup of market trends with presentations by Brenton Barrett, Multi-Color Corporation’s Asia Pacific president, who will look at global trends, along with Ariana Susanti of the Indonesian Packaging Federation, who will explore the latest developments in South East Asia.

    Additionally, a printer panel discussion comprising converters from Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Malaysia and the Philippines will look at printing as part of the economy and future growth opportunities.

    The event’s first afternoon sessions will address the latest available technologies, capabilities and applications, with the keynote being delivered by HP Indigo’s Christian Menegon. This will focus on making the move from a conventional to digital workflow and examine how the converter needs to adapt to cater for short run jobs.

    Other topics on the agenda include creating value with 3D technologies and a guide to flexo technology, materials and performance.

    The event’s second day content has been developed to help identify new opportunities for business growth. Sri Yulianti, research and development packaging manager of home personal care from Unilever will look at how to implement a sustainable strategy for environmentally friendly packaging practices.

    Meanwhile, Pete Holywell of Supa Stik Label will share secrets on how to transform a label business using online marketing and social media platforms, along with other subjects including effective anti-counterfeiting solutions for brand protection.

    Aimed at label and package printing converters, brand owners and designers, the Summit is complemented by a table-top exhibition with exhibitors including Esko, Flint Group, Gallus, Mark Andy, Nilpeter, Omet, RotoMetrics and Stork Prints. In addition, delegates will also enjoy an evening reception and afternoon networking function.

    Label production and consumption in the region set to escalate – Jade Grace, the event’s director.

    “Label Summit Indonesia is designed to provide an insight into the South East Asian market place and focus on learning and developing best practice from the latest available technologies and trends,” says Jade Grace, the event’s director. “Delegates will find out how to maximize business growth opportunities and also how emerging technologies such as digital offer them new possibilities today, not just in the future.

    “The consumption of labels and packaging in the region is set to escalate because lifestyle habits are changing. As already seen in other emerging markets such as China and India, this Westernized lifestyle quickly drives change across the supply chain and manufacturing process.

    “The label and package printing industry here is in its infancy, but advances in using more sophisticated technologies, materials and marketing techniques will be fast tracked to keep up with demand. For those fortunate enough to be involved in this cycle, the commercial opportunities and benefits are immense as the Indonesia market matures,” she says.
