It’s hard to believe that Global Pouch Forum, the largest and only event in North America dedicated solely to the pouch packaging format, is 20 years old! From its humble start
in 1997, the 2017 Global Pouch Forum (June 14-16; Miami, Florida) was highlighted by
a sold-out exhibition floor and over 600 attendees taking part in the day-and-a-half conference
that blends networking and high-quality education.
In this special eBook, we invite you to review some of the top presentations from this past year’s Global Pouch Forum, as well as check out other insightful pouch-related editorial to broaden your understanding and knowledge of this fast-growing packaging format. And if you’re passionate about the pouch, we’d be remiss if we didn’t invite you to join us this December 5-7 in Anaheim, California, for Global Pouch Forum’s sister event, Global Pouch West. Find out more information by visiting globalpouchwest.com. See you next June for the 21st Global Pouch Forum back in Miami!
