FPD 2014 Conference Banner

Hosted by SPI's Food, Drug and Cosmetic Packaging Materials Committee


This is the place to learn what U.S. FDA and major food, drug, medical device, cosmetic and toy companies expect of plastic packaging and component suppliers.  Hear about quality and sustainability initiatives envisioned by your customers and competitors.  Raise questions with officials from U.S. FDA, and network with veteran regulatory affairs experts.  Explore the role packaging has to play in advancing global sustainability goals.  Participate in dialogue and information exchange with companies along the full supply chain.  Do it all while making new friends and enjoying summertime in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor!

There is still time to register! For more information, contact Kyra Mumbauer. For information on sponsorship and exhibiting opportunities, contact Alan Carter.
