The evening before the annual live Careers in Corrugated Packaging & Display Industry Teleconference, the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) hosts an annual student dialogue dinner where select students join the Teleconference speakers and local industry executives for dinner to learn more about corrugated packaging & display industry careers. This annual student dialogue dinner, and other ICPF student dialogue dinners that are periodically conducted at major industry events, also provide a great networking opportunity for students to acquire student internships or co-ops, and to identify potential employers who can offer a corrugated packaging & display career upon graduation.
