2nd Edition of the FTA EUROPE DIAMOND AWARDS ANNOUNCED! Save the date for Milan, Wednesday 30th May 2018

FTA Europe is glad to officially announce the 2nd edition of the FTA Europe Diamond Awards! The 2018 edition of the Awards will take place in Milan at the Hotel Barcelo’ on the evening of Wednesday 30th May during the period of the Print4All Fair.  After the successful 1st edition in Dusseldorf in June 2016 with over 230 participants and 30 flexo companies awarded for their works, FTA Europe will continue to celebrate the best of flexo printing.

Following national-level awards, those winning 1st place will participate automatically in the European FTA Europe Diamond Awards. In 2016, 10 categories were awarded, plus the Best in Flexo (the best sample among all the categories). Considering the structure of the national awards and the fact that the FTA Europe Diamond Awards is a bi-annual ceremony, we can foresee that about 120 samples will compete for the FTA Europe Diamond Awards edition in 2018.

The venue in Milan will be decided in September during the next FTA Europe Board Meeting and communicated shortly after. For the time-being, please save the date of 30th May to attend the Diamond Awards which are designed to shape and foster the quality of printing flexography across Europe. Delegates from companies, national associations, media partners and stakeholder involved in the flexo community are invited to participate. Sponsorship opportunities are provided for flexo companies that want to contribute to the organization of the ceremony.

Should you need any further information about the FTA Europe Diamond Awards 2018, or your company would be interested in sponsoring, please contact Luca Conti lconti@fta-europe.eu.
