July 21, 2014

As announced at the 2014 AWA International Sleeve Label Conference & Exhibition, AWA Alexander Watson Associates will launch the 2015 AWA Sleeve Label Awards to recognize this fast-developing industry’s outstanding achievements in stretch and shrink-sleeve labeling and product decoration, in terms of “best-in-class,” innovation and sustainability.  

“We want to highlight and promote the best-practice technology and material suppliers, printers, and end-use applications for this fast growing and important labeling and decoration format,” says Corey Reardon, president and CEO of AWA Alexander Watson Associates, a global business-to-business market research, publishing, events, and advisory services company with an industry focus on the specialty paper, film, packaging, coating, and converting sector.

The 2015 AWA Sleeve Label Awards competition will be open for entries later this year, and winners, chosen by an independent panel of industry experts, will be announced and prizes presented at the AWA International Sleeve Label Conference & Exhibition to be held in Miami, FL, USA, April 29-30, 2015.
