The Print & Packaging Coalition is sponsoring the Summit June 19-20 in Washington, DC.

A coalition of printing and packaging industry associations, allied in their advocacy for an improved manufacturing climate for their members, has announced their joint cooperation in sponsoring the 2018 Print & Packaging Legislative Summit, June 19-20 in Washington, DC. This signature event will bring printers, packaging converters, suppliers and allied interests together for public policy and political education as well as direct interaction with members of Congress and the Administration.

In the 2018 Summit, AICC, the Independent Packaging Association, the Fibre Box Association (FBA) and the Printing Industries of America (PIA) will be joined by NPES, The Association for Suppliers of Printing, Publishing and Converting Technologies, and Idealliance, a global industry association representing the visual communications industry.

The Print & Packaging Legislative Summit debuted in 2017, a rebranding of the former AICC and FBA Corrugated Industry Washington Fly-in. Joined in 2016 by members of PIA, who also sponsored a similar event, the Summit now includes even more representatives from the allied printing and converting industries.

As in past years, the sponsors of the 2018 print and packaging event will be co-located with the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) Manufacturing Summit. “Our members have enjoyed the benefits of attending many of the NAM Manufacturing Summit events in the past,” said FBA President Dennis Colley. “NAM has the requisite horsepower to attract keynote speakers such as Vice President Mike Pence and House Speaker Paul Ryan, and we in turn benefit from those presentations.”
