TLMI to hold Inaugural Southeastern Regional Event

TLMI announces that the association will hold its first southeastern regional event May 3, 2022 at the Bobst Competence Center in Alpharetta, GA. The day-long event is open to both TLMI members and non-members and will kick off the first in a series of regional events that the association plans to hold moving forward. Each regional event will focus on the most urgent issues suppliers and converters are facing in the current business landscape and how these forces influence each level of the supply chain. TLMI’s regional events are designed to be half-day forums for both association members and non-members that are within a day’s drive of where the events will take place.

TLMI’s Southeastern Sustainability Summit will focus on the basics of sustainability and the process of recyclability and ways that TLMI supplier members are contributing to circularity in the printed packaging industry. Event sponsors include Bobst, Henkel, Siegwerk, Sun Chemical and UPM Raflatac. Presentations will include an update on the APR (Association of Plastic Recyclers) Design for Recycling Protocols from TLMI’s VP of Sustainability, Rosalyn Bandy, and an overview of paper and liner recycling by Paul Pirkle, President of Mid America Paper Recycling. A brand representative will also be addressing attendees at the event.

TLMI President, Linnea Keen, comments, “We’re excited to be holding what will be the first in a series of regional meetings. Our members have been increasingly requesting that the association holds more regional meetings and these events will also give non-member companies an introduction to the association and to the resources and value we bring to membership. Label converting and circularity is a critical topic in today’s supply chain and I want to thank all of our sponsors for helping to make the event possible and to contributing their own unique expertise to the day’s offerings. Registration is now open, and since seating will be very limited, I urge members to sign up quickly.”
