Don't know if you'll be covering it but there was quite a bit of vendor promotion of and demonstrations of fixed palette printing. Interesting also that Kodak didn't have any brochures on their stand - and didn't promote Spotless nor their screening tech for flexo.
I've posted a few snaps of the show here: https://printplanet.com/forum/label-packaging-forum/packaging-discussion/269154-labelexpo-brussels
Unfortunately I was working in one of the booths so I didn't have any time to actually view the show :-(
