The International Corrugated Packaging Foundation (ICPF) has scheduled three new venues for its 2022 Holiday Weekend in New York  (Friday – Sunday, December 9 -11, 2022).  On December 9, 2022, the weekend will begin with a Friday evening reception in the theatre district at Bacall’s, sponsored by Pratt Industries, 

After free time on Saturday morning to experience the best of Manhattan during the holiday season, weekend participants will attend a Broadway matinee of this year’s top Tony Award nominee, MJ.  The new musical was nominated for a 2022 record of 10 Tony Awards and is considered by many to be the best musical to hit Broadway this year.  MJ features over 25 of Michael Jackson’s biggest hits and takes audiences behind the scenes as Michael prepares for his 1992 World Tour, providing an in-depth look at his creative process.”  The matinee is sponsored by BW Papersystems. 

Saturday night, participants will be treated to a reception and dinner at New York’ City’s renowned Empire Steak House. The reception is sponsored by Fosber America, and the dinner is sponsored by the WestRock Corporation.  Green Bay Packaging and Greif are additional weekend co-sponsors.

Bring your spouse or guest for holiday shopping, sightseeing, dining, Broadway plays, and enjoying New York’s holiday season. All while supporting ICPF’s educational programs and student outreach.  Many participating executives (manufacturing executives, box plant owners, and service & supplier executives) invite clients and reward key executives from their companies with this special holiday weekend event.  Your participation will support ICPF’s ongoing corrugated packaging educational programs and outreach to universities and students.

ICPF Chairman, Tim Bergwall (President Paper Packaging and Land Management at Greif Inc.), stated “The weekend is always a special opportunity to reunite with peers in an informal social environment making ICPF’s holiday weekend in New York one of the most unique events in the industry.”
