2018 Spring Technical Conference

By February 15, 2018Uncategorized

It is time to plan for warmer weather and IPANA’s Spring Technical Conference. This event will be held at the Hilton Old Town Hotel in Alexandria, Virginia on April 16-18. We are adding a new outing for the first time! For both golfers and non-golfers in the group, don’t miss the first day outing at nearby Top Golf. Even if you don’t play golf, it is a blast and a great way to network with your colleagues!

Click here for preliminary conference information as well as registration materials, including instructions for making your preferred hotel accommodations. You should make your reservation at the Hilton Old Town now to assure you have a room, even if you are uncertain about attending. We also encourage you to stay at this property rather than off-site! Late April is optimal tourist time in the Washington, D.C. area and if you wait until late March to make your reservation, you may not be able to obtain a room. It is better to have a room and not need it than to need it and not have one!

We want you to be aware of certain deadlines in making your arrangements for IPANA’s Spring Technical Conference:

  • Registration fees for the conference will increase after March 10, so make sure you register online following the instructions below;
  • The reservation deadline for the Hilton Old Town also is March 10. However, you should reserve your room sooner rather than later.

Being in the Washington, D.C. area affords the opportunity for conference participation by those in government that affect your business. In April, our featured speaker is Jim Speginer, Vice President, Dekra Insights – Great Safety Leadership: The Only Way to a Zero Injury Culture. Other speakers will discuss a wide range of topics including steel and resin commodity trends, a manufacturing economic forecast and the future of freight.

In addition to these presentations, IPANA’s independent affiliates will meet to address the regulatory reform and technical challenges facing the various segments of the industrial packaging industry.
