THE NEW WORLD OF LABELS: FINAT event tackles the technical challenges

“The world is changing: growing geographically smaller through globalisation, and universally bigger via the clouds. In this complex value chain, the challenges that face participants at all levels today are massive.

How can we win in this multi-faceted arena?” asks Jules Lejeune, Managing Director of FINAT, the international label industry association.
