On February 25, 2016, the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) conducted the 17th annual live “Careers in Corrugated Packaging and Displays” teleconference. Students and faculty from 18 colleges and universities across the nation participated in the live video conference with over 400 packaging, design, marketing, sales, and supply chain management professionals.
A panel of industry professionals from Georgia Pacific (Billy Medof) and Smurfit Kappa Bates (Guy Sanders) and student co-moderators from two of the universities addressed the topic of “the Business of Corrugated Packaging”. Live questions were directed to the panelist from each participating campus following the discussion.
