IFPED Conference

Want to be an Industry Leader?

This year’s program at the International Flexible Packaging and Extrusion Division Conference (formerly PLACE Conference) is attracting leaders, managers, technical specialists and more from supplier companies to brand owners. Held in Charlotte, North Carolina from April 22 – 25, attendees will learn from information-packed presentations and technical sessions that will share what the future holds for the flexible packaging industry.

There is much to hear and learn over three days, and attendance at the interactive segments of the program are a must. A sampling of the need-to-know insights include:

• An eCommerce panel featuring John Moritz, VP of Product Management at Amazon, Neil Ackerman, Senior Director of Global Supply Chain Advanced Planning and Innovation at Johnson & Johnson and Jonathan Quinn, Market Development Manager at NOVA Chemicals Polyethylene Business discussing current consumer preference trends propelling the meal delivery industry’s explosive growth. 

• A panel discussion on the “Future of Flexible Packaging” features a former Walmart procurement executive and a corporate R&D executive from The Procter & Gamble Company who have extensive experience in the development and commercialization of flexible packaging technologies. 

• Release and review of a special Nielsen consumer survey focused on consumer preferences in flexible packaging.

There is also a “New Technology Showcase” featuring some of today’s most innovative products and solutions. The Tabletop Reception, following the Showcase, is where you will discover what new products, manufacturing techniques and services are available that can help expand your business and increase productivity and profitability. Tabletops will be on display on Monday and throughout the Reception, and again during the break on Tuesday morning outside the session rooms.
