Operations Track:

  • Glue, gluing, windowing, and finishing automation

“The paperboard packaging industry faces regular challenges in addition to those brought on by COVID-19,” said Ben Markens, PPC president. “I&G is designed to help inform those working in paperboard packaging how they can succeed in our new landscape. After all, when one of us improves, it pushes all of us to improve. The pandemic has changed how we look at business, and that means we have the opportunity to shape our industry.”

PPC member companies can register for $299 per company, including limited-time access to recordings after the event. Non-member companies can register for $599. Any number of individuals from each registered company may attend the conference. For more information or to save a spot, visit
