PLMA Announces 2020 Annual Meeting & Leadership Conference.

    Successful private brand depends on a partnership between manufacturers and retailers. Trust is very important to both sides. How well is the partnership working? Are the two sides paying attention to each other? Are they solving their problems or burying them in the hope that they go away. What about technology? Robotics. Artificial intelligence. Traceability. And packaging? If e-commerce grows, it will require new forms of packaging and package design.

    PLMA’s 2020 Annual Meeting & Leadership Conference puts the spotlight on the private label partnership and which best practices can make working together easier and more productive. The 2020 event will be held at the Hyatt Regency in Scottsdale Arizona, March 26-29, 2020.
