This year's AWA Global Release Liner Industry Conference and Exhibition, taking place in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, will focus on key release liner markets, application areas, opportunities, and growth.

This year’s conference program reflects that diversity.’
The opening conference keynote presentation will come from Robyn Buma, vice president, global purchasing, for Avery Dennison. She will address the importance of transparency in material sourcing in value chains. Later, the agenda will address recycled composite materials and include a keynote presentation from circular economy, business development specialist Mike Van Den Hof.

Panel discussions will bring together top industry executives across the supply chain, delivering more insights. The formal conference agenda is supported by an extensive tabletop exhibition, which also represents the location for valuable networking opportunities for delegates during program breaks.
