About the 2018 Summit

The Print & Packaging Legislative Summit is the signature government affairs conference hosted annually in our nation’s capital. This collaborative event brings together printers, suppliers and allied interests for a powerful program of issue advocacy, political education, public affairs discussions, interaction with Members of Congress and networking events on Capitol Hill. Join your peers as we address our legislators as ONE industry with ONE voice. The Print & Packaging Legislative Summit is co-hosted by AICC, The Independent Packaging Association, Association for Print Technologies (formerly NPES), Fibre Box Association (FBA), Idealliance, Printing Industries of America (PIA) and Specialty Graphic Imaging Association (SGIA). The Summit will be held in conjunction with National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) annual Manufacturing Summit. Additional supporting organizations are continuing to join us.

Who Should Attend

Recommended attendees are Presidents/CEOs and other C-Suite executives of printing and graphic communications companies. Executives with responsibility for environmental/health and safety, human resources, legal, postal, tax, technology, and/or sales are especially encouraged to attend.

What to Expect

The Summit will host legislators, printing and graphic communications professionals, and policy experts for an industry-wide meeting and networking event. In-person grassroots lobbying meetings on Capitol Hill will enable you to take your company and industry story directly to decision-makers in the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives.

What You Will Learn

  • How hot-button policy issues may impact your company’s bottom line
  • Best practices on how to advocate for your company and the industry before Congress, the Trump Administration, and other decision-makers
  • How to promote the positive image of print, packaging, and paper before key Capitol Hill audiences
  • The impact of hotly contested mid-term congressional elections on legislation and public policy of importance to the graphic communications industry
