The International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) wishes to thank the 2018 registrants and sponsors for making ICPF's eleventh annual Holiday Weekend in New York another "sell out" and one of the most successful to date. Established in 2007, the eleven annual New York events have combined for a net return of over $1,240,000 to support ICPF initiatives.
Many firms send multiple couples to New York each year. Kruger was recognized during the Saturday reception and dinner at the “21” Club for sending three executive couples in 2018. Kruger’s Francois Asselin (pictured) also recruited U.S. Corrugated as a new participant for 2018. Kruger has supported ICPF’s annual New York holiday event for numerous years after initially being recruited to the event by Andy Pierson (Mid-Atlantic Packaging).
The 2018 event sponsors included Pratt Industries, BW Papersystems, Fosber America, Bobst North America, Gerber Technology, Greif and Smurfit Kappa.
Corporate registrants and financial supporters included Amtech, Atlas Container, Arden Software, Bobst North America, Buckeye Corrugated, Inc., BW Papersystems, Cascades Containerboard Packaging, CEL Chemical, Corrugated Replacements, Inc., Dicar, DiTech York, EFI, Fosber America, Gerber Technology, Goepfert Maschinen, Green Bay Packaging, Greif, Harris Packaging, Huston Patterson, Jamestown Container, JB Machinery, J.M.
