FINAT's European Label Forum 2017 in Berlin: addressing challenges of change in an era of transformation

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.
