On February 22, ICPF will conduct its annual Teleconference on The Business of Corrugated Packaging & Displays and its Career Opportunities. As in past years, 400–500 packaging, graphic design, marketing and sales, supply chain management, business, and other students and faculty on 20 college and university campuses are expected to participate. This national broadcast event is not a webcast, but a live videoconference utilizing professional WKAR TV personnel and TV broadcast equipment at central Michigan’s public television studios for two-way interactivity. Campuses that are planning to participate include Appalachian State University, Bowling Green State University, California Polytechnic State University, Clemson University, Dunwoody College of Technology, Indiana State University, Illinois State University, Lewis-Clark State College, Michigan State University, Millersville University, North Carolina A&T University, North Carolina State University, Pittsburg State University, Rochester Institute of Technology, Rutgers University, University of Florida, University of Texas at Arlington, University of Wisconsin–Stout, Virginia Tech, and Western Michigan University.

The Teleconference’s grand finale will include ICPF’s annual Best of the Best, Student Design Presentation Competition. Four student teams from Cal Poly, Clemson University, Millersville University, and University of Texas at Arlington will be tasked to show, tell, and sell their winning entries by explaining the objective, the research conducted, design, and other background. These four student teams, which earlier placed in AICC’s 2017 design competition, will be competing for cash prizes.
