North America's Leading Conference on Sustainable Packaging Operations
Consumer packaging goods (CPG) makers are demanding more from today's packaging professionals to keep up with changing business models, government regulations, and innovations that affect their top and bottom-lines.
The fifth annual Sustainable Packaging Forum will bring together nearly 400 packaging professionals and sustainability executives from a variety of organizations including leading consumer packaged goods companies. In two and half days you will:
- Hear about the current and future economic realities of sustainable packaging and its impact on your innovation efforts, production and procurement initiatives, and supply chain
- Meet brand owners, CPG companies, packaging converters and suppliers who face the same challenges and could help boost your sustainability targets
- Understand current trends, issues, and technologies in package sustainability that will affect your future initiatives
- Network with attendees before, during, and after the Forum at the event AND on the Sustainable Packaging Forum's event page on Justmeans.
The Sustainable Packaging Forum is produced by Packaging Strategies. Since 1983, Packaging Strategies has delivered unbiased, industry news and analysis to the world's packaging leaders via our semi-monthly newsletter, conferences, and industry studies and reports.
