Year of the Box: FBA Welcomes Members to In-Person Annual Meeting

Happy New Year!

This week registration opens for Fibre Box Association’s (FBA) in-person Annual Meeting to be held April 10 – 12, 2022. With two years of disruptions behind us, the association is happy to get back to its time-honored tradition of annually bringing members together.

Not only does the event put us back on track for meeting in person, but it also gives us an opportunity to celebrate what we believe is “The Year of the Box”.

With strong shipments and a drive toward more sustainable packaging, the time is now for corrugated boxes and packaging. The pandemic lit a spark that has set off fireworks of opportunities for the corrugated industry. Boxes are the hero of the pandemic, the economy, and our new normal. Where will they take us in 2022? Find out with presentations on the top-of-mind topics impacting the corrugated industry this year and beyond.

Presentations at this year’s annual meeting will answer important member questions like:

  • Where will we find the next generation of plant employees?
  • What’s the next step in the corrugated industry’s sustainability journey? What are today’s customers and consumers looking for?
  • How are we telling the corrugated industry story? Where can members find industry information to share with customers?
  • What’s next for retailers, consumers and the supply chain? What can we expect in the coming years?

We look forward to welcoming members back to the Montage Laguna Beach. Perched on a coastal bluff above the Pacific, the hotel is one of FBA member’s favorite annual meeting destinations. The property welcomes guests into the heart of Southern California’s preeminent artist colony. Spanning 30 acres, the beachfront sanctuary features two outdoor pool decks, a 20,000-square-foot spa and three signature restaurants with spectacular views of the California coast.

The event takes place the week after AICC – the Independent Packaging Association’s Spring Meeting in Desert Springs and allows attendees of both events to travel once and enjoy a weekend in the sun between events.

Look for additional information about general session speakers coming soon.

See you on the California coast!
