The conference will be held on October 13, at the Hilton Palacio del Rio in San Antonio, Texas. Registration is open to both FPA members and non-members.

This one-day conference will focus on industry-specific topics including updates on the global flexible packaging market; the European flexible packaging market; the polypropylene market; the FPA state advocacy program; FPA’s Emerging Leadership Council (ELC) activities; and an overview of the United Nations Treaty on Plastic Pollution.
