The FPA Fall Conference, held from October 2-3 in Chicago, Illinois, hosted a record-breaking 148 attendees and welcomed speakers that focused on topics and issues important to the flexible packaging industry, such as an update on the International Trade Commission and Section 232 investigations of aluminum imports, the state of sustainable packaging, an overview on the flexible packaging global market, an update on FPA’s State Advocacy Program and a polyolefin market update.

In addition to industry content, the conference included three guest speakers. Social entrepreneur and author, Matt Tenney, discussed “Serve to Be Great: Leadership Lessons from a Prison, a Monastery, and a Boardroom.” Peter Ricchiuti, a Wall Street investment visionary and author, shared valuable tips with conference attendees on what to look for while stock hunting. Ben Saunders, world record-breaking polar explorer and repeat TED Speaker, discussed “Achieving the Impossible” and shared the keys to beating the odds and staying motivated through challenges, risks, and setbacks.
