Exhibitor List Updated
Thank you to those already registered!
Join friends and colleagues, new and old, at the 2019 RIPA Annual Conference and Exposition October 2-4, 2019 at the beautiful Naples Grande Beach Resort in Naples, Florida.
The event is being held in tandem with IPANA’s Annual Conference October 1-3.
Don’t miss this opportunity to learn all that’s new in the industrial packaging industry. Nowhere else will you find this collection of experts and leaders from all parts of the business. And as always, we have created a great program with top quality presentations and social events.
The keynote speaker will be Mr. John McConnell, a speechwriter for former President George W. Bush. Also featured will be Mr. Ernie Davis, ExxonMobil, who will talk about future energy prospects through 2040. And an expert on the “circular economy” is also being added to the roster.
The Suppliers Exposition, starting Wednesday evening and continuing into Thursday, is promising to be a grand event in itself. A record number of informative displays are expected in Naples. Confirmed as Exhibitors thus far:
CDF Corp. Clean Earth Systems Con-Tech Intl.
Drum Parts, Inc Merco Machines NLB Corp.
Picco Coatings Quala Rod Stewart Consulting
Sheboygan Paint TriSure Vecoplan, LLC

And of course, you can’t overlook the beautiful environs and the copious amenities at the Naples Grande. The resort is a short walk down a nature trail to the crystal blue waters of the Gulf of Mexico. And the hotel features virtually everything you could want in either a working environment or time for leisure and recreation. Please note: Accompanying Persons (i.e., wives, children, non-employees) will receive a voucher to use at the Naples Grande Spa. There is no “spouses’ tour” this year.
