For more than 40 years, ICCA has sponsored a biennial Management Conference to allow worldwide corrugated industry executives to come together and share information, in a legal manner, on appropriate issues.

Since 2007, ICCA and the World Containerboard Organisation (WCO) have joined together to co-sponsor the Global Summit.


ICCA and WCO have made the difficult decision to cancel the upcoming ICCA/WCO 2017 Global Summit to be held October 17 – 19, 2017 at the Sofitel Guarujá Jequitimar near Sao Paulo, Brazil. The decision to cancel was not made lightly and the associations have informed all registrants of the cancellation individually.   

Webinars to Address Key Topics

To address Global Summit topics of great interest to our members, such as ICCA’s Global Forecast and Worldwide Fiber Availability, ICCA plans to schedule webinar sessions that will take place in the coming weeks. Members should watch their e-mail for information on registering for these webinar events.

The Global Summit Returns in 2019 

The associations remain committed to high-quality conferences that offer information, excellent speakers and the idea exchange that can only be found when bringing together global leaders for the Global Summit. Plans are already underway for the 2019 Global Summit to be held in Florida, USA in the spring of 2019. We hope you will plan to return to the 2019 Global Summit!
