"There are very few occasions in any industry when leading players across all relevant disciplines can usefully get together"; says Jules Lejeune, Managing Director of the international labelling association FINAT. "Our FINAT European Label Forum is certainly one such opportunity – and it represents a present-and-future business briefing that encompasses both the global environment and industry-specific topics across the many aspects of this diverse packaging business sector."
The Best of the Best awards will be announced during Labelexpo Europe in Brussels in September.
