AICC Announces National Convention Locations
AICC, the Independent Packaging Association announces the dates and locations for the Association’s upcoming spring and fall conventions through 2017. AICC’s national meetings take place annually in the spring and fall. The conventions provide premier educational and training opportunities for members as well as providing social and networking events.
The locations of Naples, Florida, Fort Worth, Texas, Palm Desert, California, Orlando, Florida, Austin, Texas and Las Vegas, Nevada have been selected to host the 2015, 2016 and 2017 Spring & Fall Conventions.
The AICC national conventions are one of the top benefits to member companies. "Each selected city has its own attributes and will surely be a huge success with AICC members", said Steve Young, President, AICC. AICC has changed its site selection process to include cities and locations that are more accessible and affordable for the members to attend and to encourage them to send multiple members within their company.
AICC frequently partners with other affiliate associations to co-locate meetings and trade shows in order to allow for less time out of the office, lower the overall cost of attending a meeting and to offer more diverse programming such as the recently held 2014 Corrugated Week that took place in Long Beach, CA in which AICC partnered with TAPPI. The Flexographic Pre-Press Platemakers Association (FPPA) will co-locate their annual meeting with the AICC 2015 Spring Meeting in Naples, Florida. AICC will partner once again with TAPPI for SuperCorrExpo 2016 in Orlando, Florida.
