Paperboard Packaging Council To Host Fall Meeting In Savannah The Paperboard Packaging Council’s (PPC) 2021 Fall Meeting and Leadership Conference will take place Oc- tober 27-29 at the Westin Savannah Harbor Golf Resort & Spa. The association’s first in-person meeting in more than a year will reconvene folding carton industry leaders to engage in critical topics related to sustainability, cyber- security, powering the future, the outlook for the global economy, and other crucial issues affecting the paper- board packaging industry today. Keynote speaker John Gift, CSO at WestRock, will dis- cuss the virtual skills needed in a post-pandemic world, along with how to improve online security and ways to work better in the digital space. Later, Michael Housley will address sustainable energy during a presentation on powering the future with electric- ity. Housley, the president of Legacy Energy, will discuss the state of the electric grid and review the differences in regional energy costs as well as the green initiatives that could help the paperboard packaging industry become more sustainable. “When curating content for our meetings, we chose topics that address some of our members’ top challeng- es,” said Ben Markens, PPC president. “Cybersecurity is crucial to keeping paperboard manufacturers cybersafe and thriving, as is sustainability and integrating green ini- tiatives to keep our industry innovative and relevant.” Attendees will also gain valuable insights about the economy from renowned Emory University professor and economist, Jeff Rosensweig. Prior to and during the pan- demic, Rosensweig offered PPC members with data and forecasts to set expectations and guide decision making. This year, Rosensweig will discuss the economic changes that have occurred within the past years and how attend- ees can take advantage of the new landscape. Other sessions will feature Bob Feeser, a board mem- ber of MillRock Capitol, Kathi Rowzie, president of Two Sides North America, along with breakout sessions, panel discussions, and special interest meetings. Conference-goers will also attend: a welcome recep- tion that includes an award ceremony and dinner to honor Steven C. Voorhees, former CEO of WestRock, as he re- ceives PPC’s lifetime achievement award; a banquet and awards ceremony announcing the winners of PPC’s 78th annual North American Paperboard Packaging Competi- tion; and a day dedicated to design, featuring presenta- tions and panel discussions from the winning designers. “We want attendees to have a great time and take away valuable information,” said Markens. “With a fantas- tic speaker lineup and a celebration of our 78th annual packaging competition, Fall Meeting in Savannah will be a wonderful opportunity to reconnect and learn together.” For more information about the rest of PPC’s 2021 Fall Meeting visit .
