RELEASE LINER AND THE PRESSURE-SENSITIVE LABEL INDUSTRY: The annual update on release liner’s largest market

Thursday, July 14, 2011

The annual AWA Label Release Liner Industry Seminar 2010 takes place this year  in Europe, on 27th September 2011, at the Hotel NH du Grand Sablon, Brussels.


Continuing its established tradition of prefacing the label industry’s major exhibition, Labelexpo (this year also taking place in Brussels), the seminar is a key event for all associated with the release liner and pressure-sensitive label market as supplier, producer, or user.


Market status

As the label industry emerges from the global financial crisis, raw material shortages and cost inflation are impacting both suppliers and converters, and margin pressures are becoming more and more intense across the value chain. With growth rates continuing to slow in mature markets, the business has become more challenging than ever before.


In-depth market analysis from AWA Alexander Watson Associates sets the seminar agenda in context, and the event brings together experts from all levels of the release liner value chain, to highlight trends and opportunities as well as to assess the challenges.


Agenda topics

Threats from alternative labelling technologies continue – but there is still room for innovation, and this year’s seminar demonstrates that the release liner industry is actively pursuing a positive future. Agenda topics include an update on waste packaging legislation and commercial liner recycling initiatives; linerless labels; film and paper release liners in a variety of aspects; and current adhesive technologies.


Organized by AWA Conferences & Events, the seminar features a formal program which is complemented by networking opportunities and by end-of-day cocktails hosted by the event’s Platinum Sponsors, Evonik Industries and UPM-Kymmene. Details of the AWA Label Release Liner Industry Seminar, as well as the opportunity to register online, are available via the AWA website,
