CPA Annual Meeting was a HUGE Success

On Feb. 20-22, over 150 of the nation’s leading contract packagers and manufacturers gathered in Tampa, Florida for the CPA Annual Meeting. Attendees heard from two exceptional keynote speakers, Kirk Lippold, former commander of the USS Cole and Bill Bishop, chief architect, Brick Meets Click. In addition to over a dozen dynamic sessions on global consolidation, food retailing, the state of the industry and e-commerce, attendees had the opportunity to tour nine local member plants. The 2019 Annual Meeting provided deep insight into how relationships, regulatory compliance, technology, marketing and education can all come together to positively impact your bottom line. Save the date for next year’s Annual Meeting (Feb. 19-21, 2020; El Conquistador Tucson; Tucson, Arizona)!
