FINAT opens membership to the labelling industry


FINAT, the European association for the self-adhesive label industry, is offering a 3-months trial membership to all label printers and their suppliers within the European labelling industry, who have not yet joined, to get a taste of what it means to be a member of the international association.

Being a FINAT member entitles all employees of a member company to become connected with an industry-wide network of peers, to meet them at different events such as the annual European Label Forum, to acquire and exchange relevant knowledge and information such as the exclusive 6-monthly FINAT RADAR market report, the FINAT webinar series, as well as papers and articles on relevant topics in the FINAT’s online member library. The association also promotes industry solutions in the field of release liner recycling, offers tools and guidance on Life Cycle Assessment and the handling of self-adhesive labels for food packaging. Membership also creates more visibility for companies via the online membership directory, participation in the FINAT labelling competition, news reports in FINAT’s bi-weekly e-newsletter LNO and other B2B communication channels.

To get a hands-on idea of the benefits of a FINAT membership, one can sign up for a free guest membership for three months. This entitles one 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 each member to guide them through the benefits and to introduce them to the biggest network in the label industry by accompanying them as a member at one of the FINAT events. One can apply for a guest membership through FINAT’s website, After a 30-day acceptance period by all FINAT member companies, guest membership will be active for three months after which one may decide to become an official FINAT member.
