Pallet Industry Professionals Prepare to Sharpen Your Skills
Happy New Year! We are looking forward to another busy and productive year which, for pallet industry events, kicks off in just nine days at the Western Pallet Association Annual Meeting.
The Western Pallet Association is a non-profit trade association started in 1974 with a purpose to bring together professionals in material handling, including manufacturers and wholesalers, to share knowledge, create innovative ideas, discuss industry issues, and promote the wooden pallet industry. The association accomplishes this through industry meetings, seminars, and various networking opportunities.
The biggest of which is their annual meeting commencing on Friday, January 12, and running through Tuesday, January 16, at the Rancho Las Palmas Resort in Rancho Mirage, California. On the agenda is socializing and outdoor activity along with interactive learning on topical issues from bioeconomy, sustainability, and fire codes to state-of-the-industry reporting. All-in-all, the meeting boasts an outstanding line-up of speakers, networking receptions, dinners, golf tournament, and an auction to benefit Nature’s Packaging – an international initiative dedicated to increasing the use of wooden packaging through education.
And, speaking of education, the lecture we’re most interested to hear covers “5 Key Trends that Will Change Everything in the Pallet Industry,” presented by Chaille Brindley. For a full listing of events and presentations, click here.
In the meantime, if you’re out West and plan on attending this meeting, please let us know your thoughts on the event and what you liked best. And, as always, for all of your pallet management needs, call on Rose Pallet; we are ready and prepared to help you for the long haul!
