AmericaPack Summit 2020

The 6th AmericaPack Summit is the premium forum bringing elite buyers and sellers together. As an invitation-only event taking place behind closed doors, the summit offers FMCG packaging executives and suppliers and solution providers an intimate environment for a focused discussion on how to win the battle for market and mind share through packaging.

The demand for change has become an omnipresent part of today’s fast-moving economy and modern society. The FMCG world is faced with complex and multifaceted challenges, in which packaging can either be the hero or the villain. Packaging experts are called upon to take leadership in the ticking pace of today’s demands, deliver innovative solutions while carefully balancing the compilation between all its components and the supply chain. The AmericaPack Summit brings together packaging leaders to usher in a new age of packaging.
