Rajesh Chadha, Update Prints

480 delegates from 334 companies spread all over the world, have registered so far and the registrations keep coming. 191 label printing companies and 143 suppliers have registered to be at the event. 30 speakers along with 3 guest speakers will deliver information driven by technology and innovation. As the euphoria builds up, demand for more bookings is pouring in. All the rooms arranged at the venue hotel have been sold out while registrations are still coming in. LMAI leadership has arranged a few rooms at another hotel Courtyard by Marriot but the way it is going they will have to soon express inability to accommodate any more delegates. In words of Rajesh Chadha, Managing Director, Update Prints, “All the conference committee members have worked incredibly hard, we are proud of them”!
