The 17th edition of Label Summit Latin America was held March 10-11 in Santiago, Chile. Taking place in the Chilean capital for only the second time, the two-day conference brought together 499 senior stakeholders from 21 countries who were eager to share ideas and shape the future direction of the region’s label and package printing industry.

The conference included 11 conference discussions and in-depth presentations. The focus was on printing, branding, design, and wine. In addition, sustainability was a recurrent theme.

“Once again, we’re delighted to bring the industry together during the latest Label Summit Latin America,” said Tasha Ventimiglia, Label Summit Latin America 2020 event director. “Despite an ambiguous period, we were able to host a lively and extremely well-received conference, with truly inspiring speakers and fantastic educational sessions covering the most topical converter, design and sustainability issues facing the region’s label and package printing industry.”

Delegates also took advantage of the accompanying exposition. Nearly 60 exhibiting companies showcased the latest technology driving the region’s industry.

“The Summit was a key show for ABG, allowing us to engage with visitors on the scale of new developments in our finishing equipment and the opportunities available, particularly in increased automation and faster workflows,” said Sebastián Rosero, ABG its sales representative in Latin America. “We had some constructive discussions with the packaging group, All4Labels Argentina, and barcode and RFID technology specialists, SATO, also based in Argentina, both of which should result in new business.”

“I would like to extend my sincere thanks to everyone for taking part in Label Summit Latin America 2020,” said Ventimiglia. “The insight shared at this event will be invaluable as our thoughts turn towards putting together our very first three-day Labelexpo in Latin America, in Mexico for next year, which replaces Label Summit Latin America 2021. We look forward to working with Label Summit speakers and exhibitors, and the wider industry, on the show.”
