Entries are open for the 2020 AWA International Sleeve Label Awards – a competition that for the last five years, has annually documented the groundbreaking achievements that sleeve labeling has brought to today’s packaging industry.
Recognizing quality at all production levels
Entries will be accepted from printers/converters and brand owners/end users which demonstrate quality and originality in the design, production, and end-use of all types of label sleeves. Judged by an international panel of industry experts, the AWA International Sleeve Label Awards feature four main categories; heat shrink TD sleeve labels; roll-fed MD shrink sleeves; stretch sleeves; and a special category recognizing a notable environmental/sustainability contribution. At their discretion, the judges may also award a ‘best in show’ trophy.
Sleeve label industry specialists
Competition sponsors AWA Alexander Watson Associates, specialist market researchers and consultants to the broad packaging and converting industries, have focussed strongly on sleeve label market developments, and host the leading annual sleeve labeling conference, which alternates between Europe and the USA. In its fourteenth year, the AWA International Sleeve Label Conference and Exhibition 2020 will be held in Cincinnati, USA, 29 April – 1 May 2020, during which winners in the AWA International Sleeve Label Awards will be presented with their trophies at a special ceremony on the evening of 30 April 2020.
The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.
A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has
demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.
As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.
The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.
Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.
