Flexibility is packaging's future. It is the fastest-growing segment of U.S. consumer packaging. Global Pouch West welcomes consumer packaged goods and packaging company leaders to sunny California for more about the trends, markets and innovations impacting this important industry. For 18 years, the Global Pouch Forum in Florida has been the largest conference on flexible packaging in North America. For the past three years, we've sold out exhibitor and attendee space. This meeting gives those on the west coast a chance to network and learn about a marketplace that comprises a fifth of all U.S. packaging. Estimates put flexible plastic sales at $18.8 billion in 2017.
