Labelexpo Europe 2009, the world’s largest event for the label, product decoration, web printing and converting industry, took place on the 23 – 26 September at Brussels Expo in Belgium. Hosting more than 500 exhibitors from 40 countries, U.K.-based organisers Tarsus needed a service provider that could not only deliver ‘volume’ but also offer high levels of service.
Tarsus Group Limited appointed Melville Exhibition & Event Services Limited, a GES Worldwide Network company, as partners to supply the full span of exhibition services, including standfitting, furniture and floorcoverings, graphics, electrical and mechanical services, custom design and build as well as data and registration services.
Using its own high-quality U.K. personnel and equipment, Melville built in excess of 2,800 square metres of shell scheme, supplied and fitted over 32,000 square metres of floorcoverings and installed over 800 electrical mains and piped services. In addition, Melville delivered over 200 furniture orders and designed and built a number of bespoke stands and feature areas. The registration team seamlessly managed over 24,000 visitors, from 125 countries, who attended the hugely successful event.
“We have worked with Tarsus on Labelexpo Europe for 15 years but previously only in an electrical services capacity. More recently we provided data and registration services,” says Melville CEO Nick Marshall. “Providing a full range of services from mechanical to registration takes us to another level and highlights our ability to provide excellent customer service overseas.”
Roger Pellow, Labelexpo Managing Director adds, “Working abroad can sometimes prove challenging, but the Melville team provided our operations people with tremendous support throughout, not only during the show build up and open period but in the run up to the actual event itself. Melville’s track record of delivering electrical and mechanical mains gave us no doubt we were making the right decision in appointing them for additional services. Their professionalism and dedication is a fundamental part of what makes Labelexpo Europe such a success. I have had many comments from both exhibitors and visitors on how smooth the whole event ran, and I’d like to thank Nick and his team for all their hard work and effort.”
