Tarsus Group, the organizer of Labelexpo/Brand Print Americas 2020, recently confirmed new dates for its co-located shows as a result of the ongoing COVID-19 situation. Originally scheduled to take place September 15-17, 2020, Labelexpo Americas and Brand Print Americas will now take place March 23-25, 2021, in Rosemont, Ill. A virtual conference will take place during the original mid-September dates, enabling the region’s industry to stay connected during this unprecedented period.
“Health and safety will always remain our top priority, therefore we have taken the decision to postpone Labelexpo and Brand Print Americas 2020,” said Lisa Milburn, managing director of the Labelexpo/Brand Print global series. “We have been continuously monitoring developments in North America over the last few months and have acted on the advice of our local partners, Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), and taken on board exhibitor feedback. As a result, we feel the best course of action is to move the shows to early next year.
“We know how vitally important these shows are for triggering business between converters and manufacturers, and moving the domestic market forward. Strategically postponing the shows to March 2021 allows us to not only meet our commitment to the North American region’s industry by continuing to deliver a much-needed show next year, but also ensures we offer the highest quality, safe experience it expects from Labelexpo and Brand Print Americas. Most importantly, as trade platforms, the shows will play a vital role in reigniting and driving the economic recovery of the region’s label and package printing and branded print industries, plus their supply chains, as we move through the post coronavirus/COVID-19 recovery phase. We encourage everyone to help our industry bounce back by joining us at the shows in March 2021.”
