Flexibility is packaging's future. And to capitalize on what is the fastest-growing segment of U.S. consumer packaging, Packaging Strategies introduced Global Pouch Forum West in 2014. This event welcomes consumer packaged goods and packaging company leaders to sunny California for more about the trends, markets and innovations impacting this important industry.
For 18 years, the Global Pouch Forum has been the largest conference on flexible packaging in North America. For the past three years, we've sold out exhibitor and attendee space. This meeting on the west coast gives you a second chance to network and learn about a marketplace that comprises a fifth of all U.S. packaging. Estimates put flexible plastic sales at $18.8 billion in 2017.
