About the 15th Edition

The 15th edition of the annual AWA Label Release Liner Seminar, collocated with Label Expo Europe 2023, is a key event for anyone associated with and involved in the pressure-sensitive label and release liner market as a supplier, producer, converter, or user.

The prime location and timing of the event aims to draw industry professionals from around the globe. The pressure-sensitive label market represents around 50% of all release liners produced and used, supplied both through in-house siliconizing and commercial silicone coating.

This year’s label release liner seminar will feature presentations and discussions, by key industry experts, on important topics facing the label and release liner industry.

  • Liner Recycling/Sustainability

  • Liner Supply (Glassine/PET)

Up-to-date information on the market and it’s evolving issues and opportunities will be highlighted. This includes a focus on two of the most impactful issues and opportunities facing the release liner and labeling industry today – sustainability and recycling and liner supply.
