You can help support the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation's (ICPF) operations and programs by attending its annual Holiday Weekend in New York. Socialize and enjoy the best New York City has to offer during the holiday season. Network and strengthen your ties within the industry...all while supporting the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF)!
The event is the only annual fundraising event conducted by ICPF. Participants (manufacturing executives, box plant owners & executives, and service & supplier executives) and their spouses, or significant others, begin with a Friday evening reception at a special New York location. On Saturday, guests attend a matinee of a Broadway hit. After free time on Saturday for more socializing, shopping and otherwise enjoying the holiday season in New York, there always is a Saturday evening ICPF reception and dinner at an iconic New York restaurant. In addition to participating, many corporate executives have invited clients, potential ICPF Corporate Partners, and rewarded key executives from their companies with this special holiday weekend function. There are corporate opportunities for sponsorship as well.
ICPF Chairman, Jeff Chalovich, President of Corrugated Packaging at WestRock, stated “It is a special opportunity to mix with peers in an informal social environment. ICPF's holiday weekend is one of the most unique events in the industry. Your participation supports ICPF, an important resource for our future.”
The upcoming 2017 ICPF Holiday Weekend in New York will be held Friday - Sunday, December 8 - 10, 2017.
