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.
