BOOK HOTELCALL

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the Annual Meeting has been rescheduled for September 15-17, 2021, at The Ritz-Carlton, Amelia Island, Florida. The meeting will be an in-person event.

We apologize in advance that this new date interferes with Yom Kippur, as it was very difficult to find an open time this fall to reschedule and avoid cancellation penalties. Please note that this will be FPA’s only in-person meeting this year, as we will not have a Fall Executive Conference. We look forward to seeing as many of you as possible in September and getting back to “normal” with our Annual Meeting and Fall Executive Conferences in 2022.

The meeting will offer great networking opportunities for industry leaders and senior management. The winners of the 2021 Flexible Packaging Achievement Awards Competition and all competition entries will be on display as well.

Registration for the Annual Meeting is now available!
The FPA 2021 Annual Meeting is for FPA Members Only
