Free trial guest membership

If you first want to get a real hands-on idea of the benefits of a FINAT membership, you can sign up for a free guest membership for three months. Please note that this guest membership is only for potential category A, B, or C members within the European label industry (see below). This trial guest membership entitles you to all the benefits, with an exception of access to the FINAT Technical Handbook. A buddy from one of the FINAT committees will be assigned to you to guide you through the membership’ benefits and to introduce you to the biggest network in the label industry by accompanying you as a member at one of the FINAT events. To apply for a guest membership click here. After a 30-day acceptance period by all FINAT member companies, your guest membership will be active for three months after which you may decide to become an official FINAT member.
