YMC participants improved their business skills

THE NETHERLANDS • FINAT’s Young Managers Club (YMC), which is a part of the European self-adhesive labelling association, was held last month in Slovakia. The Congress lived up to its “Climb to the Top” theme by bringing together label industry participants which are under forty years to help them sharpen their business skills in order to meet the challenges of a changing world. The 2015 YMC Global Congress once again took a very hands-on approach, combining a company site visit, workshops and panel discussion sessions.

A high point of the conference was the facility visit to the Bratislava-based self-adhesive label converter Purgina, home Dana Kilarska. She and her brother, Radovan, are the second generation of young managers of a business founded by their parents in 1991. The company’s 80 employees offer a full-service design-to-print label capability to its customers, with a focus on labels for high-end wines and beers and spirits.

The formal Congress agenda opened with a workshop on core management principles. The Congress also featured an innovation workshop. Event sponsors of the YMC Global Congress 2015 included gold sponsors Avery Dennison, Tarsus Exhibitions & Publishing, Gallus Ferd. Rüesch, and silver sponsor Delfortgroup.
