You can help support the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation's (ICPF) operations and programs by attending its annual Holiday Weekend in New York. Socialize and enjoy the best New York City has to offer during the holiday season. Network and strengthen your ties within the industry...all while supporting the International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF)!
The event is the only annual fundraising event conducted by ICPF. Participants (manufacturing executives, box plant owners & executives, and service & supplier executives) and their spouses, or significant others, begin with a Friday evening reception at a special New York location. On Saturday, guests attend a matinee of a Broadway hit or other special holiday production. After free time on Saturday for more socializing, shopping and otherwise enjoying the holiday season in New York, there always is a Saturday evening ICPF reception and dinner at an iconic New York restaurant. In addition to participating, many corporate executives have invited clients, potential ICPF Corporate Partners, and rewarded key executives from their companies with this special holiday weekend function. There are corporate opportunities for sponsorship as well.
ICPF Chairman, Jeff Chalovich, President of Corrugated Packaging at WestRock, stated “It is a special opportunity to mix with peers in an informal social environment. ICPF's holiday weekend is one of the most unique events in the industry. Your participation supports ICPF, an important resource for our future.”
The upcoming 2018 ICPF Holiday Weekend in New York will be held Friday - Sunday, December 7 - 9, 2018.
Hotel rooms go quickly during the holiday season, so executives are encouraged to register and make their hotel reservations through ICPF early to guarantee room availability at the special group rate. This year should be another early "sell out" with 55 couples participating. So we advise that couples register as soon as possible before the end of the summer. And, half of the registration fee is fully tax deductible and supports ICPF's operations and programs. We hope you can join us this year for another special, holiday weekend.

2017 Holiday Weekend in New York
In its tenth year, ICPF's Holiday Weekend in New York (Dec. 8 - 10, 2017) serves as ICPF's annual fundraiser where manufacturing and supplier executives, with their spouses or guests, can support ICPF while socializing and enjoying the best of New York City during the holiday season.
This past year's participants began with a Friday evening reception at the renowned Sardi's, sponsored by Pratt Industries. After free time on Saturday morning for brunches, holiday shopping, sightseeing and museums, participants attended the Saturday matinee performance of the Broadway musical hit, The Band's Visit, most recent winner of nine Tony Awards, including "Best New Broadway Musical" (Sponsored by BW Papersystems). Executives and their spouses or guests later participated in a Saturday evening reception and dinner at the renowned Le Cirque restaurant. The reception was sponsored by Fosber America. The dinner was sponsored by Bobst North America. The traditional ICPF surprise holiday gift provided to participants was sponsored by Gerber Innovations and Equipment Finance Corporation. Serenity Packaging was an additional sponsor for the weekend.
The Muse New York, a Kimpton boutique hotel in the Theatre District, served as ICPF's host hotel.
