The evening before the annual live Careers in Corrugated Packaging & Display Industry Teleconference, the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) hosts an annual student dialogue dinner where select students join the Teleconference speakers and local industry executives for dinner to learn more about corrugated packaging & display industry careers. This annual student dialogue dinner, and other ICPF student dialogue dinners that are periodically conducted at major industry events, also provide a great networking opportunity for students to acquire student internships or co-ops, and to identify potential employers who can offer a corrugated packaging & display career upon graduation.

Each year the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) conducts an interactive Teleconference on the Business of Corrugated Packaging & Displays and the Career Opportunities for packaging, graphic design, marketing & sales, business, engineering, supply chain and related students from colleges and universities across North America. Corrugated packaging & displays industry executives present topics of interest to students and faculty, and answer questions from the 450 - 500 students participating from 18 to 20 remote campuses. The Teleconferences are moderated by recent graduates or student interns from ICPF partner universities who were prepared and recruited to the corrugated packaging & displays industry through ICPF's resources. The Teleconference is not a webinar, but an actual, interactive video broadcast utilizing PBS producers and studios in East Lansing, Michigan. The two hour conference also includes the live "Best of the Best" student design presentation competition with cash awards to competing student teams.
The evening before the Teleconference, ICPF hosts its annual student / executive dialogue dinner where top students join the Teleconference speakers and local industry executives for dinner to learn more about corrugated packaging & display industry careers.
