Holiday Weekend in New York

You can help support the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation's (ICPF) operations and programs by attending their 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. Reward key executives, invite clients, and get in some holiday shopping and sightseeing...all while supporting the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF)!

The event is the only annual fundraising event conducted by ICPF. Participants (integrated 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.  

Seven-time participant and Co-Chair of the 2015 event, Andy Pierson, President and CEO of Mid-Atlantic Packaging stated “There’s no better way to enter the spirit of the holiday season than to celebrate it with so many industry friends while supporting a wonderful organization like the ICPF.”
