ICPF to introduce corrugated packaging to additional 500 students
This February 21st, ICPF will conduct its annual Teleconference on The Business of Corrugated Packaging & Displays and the Career Opportunities. As in past years, 400 - 500 packaging, graphic design, marketing & sales, chemical & mechanical engineering, supply chain management, business and other students and faculty on 15 - 20 college campuses are expected to participate. This annual event is not a webcast, but a live video conference utilizing professional WKAR TV personnel and TV broadcast equipment at central Michigan’s PBS studios for two-way interactivity.

After their presentation, industry panel speakers, led by Greg Hall (CEO, Smurfit Kappa North America), and student moderator Taylor Jensen (Michigan State Packaging ’19 & Landaal Packaging Student Intern), will address live questions from students on each of the 15 - 20 participating campuses.

Campuses that are planning to participate include Appalachian State University, Bowling Green State University, California Polytechnic State University, Clemson University, Dunwoody College of Technology, Indiana State University, Illinois State University, Lewis-Clark State College, Michigan State University, Millersville University, North Carolina A & T University, North Carolina State University, Pittsburg State University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rutgers University, University of Florida, University of Texas-Arlington, University of Wisconsin-Stout, Virginia Tech and Western Michigan.

The Teleconference's grand finale will include ICPF's annual Best of the Best, Student Design Presentation Competition. Student teams, that earlier placed in AICC's 2018 design competition, will be competing for cash prizes. Student teams from Appalachian State, Cal Poly, and University of Texas - Arlington will be tasked to show, tell and sell their winning entries by explaining the objective, the research conducted, design and other background.
