Launched in 2004, Label Summit Latin America remains our largest conference-led event and alternates between the major markets of Mexico and Brazil.
The rapidly growing label industry in Latin America is fuelled by the increasing power of the middle class and represents exciting opportunities for label converters and suppliers.
Previous surveys by Labels & Labeling and Conversion magazines reveal two very clear needs among label converters. Firstly, converters are looking for knowledge on the latest technologies and secondly, they are interested in investing in the latest high quality machinery and materials. In fact, all respondents said that they will be purchasing equipment in the next two years, as many large brand owners are considering Latin America as a source for their labeling needs.
Label Summit Latin America is supported by all the key magazines and associations in the region.
The Latin American label industry is complex, dynamic and fast growing. As investmenet into Latin America by the leading global brand manufacturers and major retail groups moves further ahead, so the demand for labels of all kinds will continue to grow rapidly. The Latin American label industry is already capable of the highest quality of printing, not only for the domestic market, but also for export to other markets around the world.
Annual pressure sensitive material consumption in Latin America is growing at more than 3-4 times the rate of the United States and Europe. This presents a great opportunity for both label converters and suppliers.
These trends can only continue to grow in the future, with Latin American label converters becoming ever more global in their aspirations and markets.
Latin America is undoubtedly a region to watch - and to begin investing more time and effort in to build and support. It will become one fo the key label producing markets of the future.
