The International Label Conference (ETKON) was initiated as early as 1986 by Brigl & Bergmeister, the world’s leading manufacturer of label papers and flexible packaging papers for the Consumer Packaged Goods industry. The aim was to increase understanding of the supply chain, and to initiate better collaboration along it.

The ETKON is a kind of think tank, providing food for thought. Due to its anticipatory nature, it is a pioneering rather than a retrospective platform.

As it is a non-profit conference, Brigl & Bergmeister does not consider the ETKON an advertising platform. B&B is the organizer of the International Label Conference.
