One of the highlights of the European label industry’s year is the announcement of the winners in the FINAT Label Competition – an annual event which has identified and lauded outstanding achievement for 37 years now.
Having just returned from the 2017 edition of FINAT’s European Label Forum in Berlin, I share with you some thoughts which I already wrote down in my editorial of the association's Yearbook that has just been released. The thoughts and ideas that were shared, the conversations that took place and the (new) friendships that were built only confirm the role of our association as platform linking the label community on its way to future business success! Thanks to all of you who were there who made this an event to remember.
