May 29th 2017

The edition number 19 of Congress of the National Association of Continuous Label Manufacturers, ANFEC, it was a success. 248 people attended the annual meeting, held from May 11 to 14 at the Hotel Princesa Yaiza in Lanzarote.

The professional program began with the 2017 General Assembly, in which the economic data of ANFEC for the past year were presented. "Labels are the sector that is working the best within the graphic communication industry," said José Ramón Benito, president of the Association, who added that despite the good data, one should not become complacent.
