Labels & Labeling, in association with Avery Dennison, is to host an online wine label conference designed to bridge the communication gap between label converters, designers and wineries.
The webinar will host a panel of wine label experts from material suppliers to brand owners.
Participants will learn what trends are happening in the greater wine market, how wineries can use labels as a brand communication piece, what new label materials are available and popular, and how advanced technology and finishing techniques can enhance a label's presence on-shelf.
