FINAT answers all questions at Labelexpo Europe 2015

Hall 11 Stand A31

FINAT LabelexpoAs one of Europe’s leading trade associations for the self-adhesive labelling and adjacent narrow web converting industry, FINAT will again welcome the label community to its stand at Labelexpo Europe 2015.

Visitors with marketing, managerial or technical questions about the fast-paced change in the label industry or keen to learn more about release liner recycling, are invited to pass by the FINAT stand where board and committee members are present to answer these questions and much more. In addition, Mark Macaré, FINAT’s public affairs and issues manager, will be answering any questions on release liner recycling at the Recycling Desk on FINAT’s stand. Prior to the show, FINAT will host the global label associations united in the L9.

“We are excited to celebrate the 35th anniversary of Labelexpo this year, as presenting partner of our valued partner Tarsus,” said Jules Lejeune, managing director of FINAT. “Initially, Labelexpo Europe provided the newly emerging self-adhesive printing and converting technology its own platform outside ‘mainstream’ printing exhibitions, and especially during the past 25 years, the show has gone from strength to strength.”

Update on joint TLMI /FINAT LCA project and new conformity info documents

FINAT also announces that a press conference will be staged at Labelexpo on Thursday October 1 at 12.30pm in the press office (Hall 7) together with TLMI, the trade organisation for converters and suppliers in the North American tags and pressure sensitive labels industry. During the press conference, FINAT and TLMI will give an update on the joint Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) project, share the key findings so far and provide details on the publication of the FINAT LCA guidelines.

At the press conference, FINAT will also address the issue of conformity of self-adhesive labels for food packaging following the recent publication of an overview of existing legislation on materials and articles coming into contact with food.

Other publications on show will include the FINAT Technical Handbook 9th edition in French and the FINAT leaflet “Connect your business with the label community” with information on what it means to be part of the FINAT community. FINAT’s booth will display winning entries in the 2015 FINAT Label Competition while visitors can also take part, and even win a prize, in an online survey to help FINAT gain a better understating of how its performance is viewed.

Finally, FINAT is offering members the chance to use its meeting facilities room free of charge for up to an hour. Contact the FINAT secretariat to make a reservation.
