Although it’s nearly three months away, early bird registration is strongly recommended for the National Wooden Pallet & Container Association Fall Plant Tours in Houston, TX, on November 8-9. Why? Because past tours have been popular and sold out fast!

With plant tours, two receptions, group meals, and an exhibition, this event is a great opportunity to reconnect with or meet new industry colleagues from around the country, all while exploring and learning about pallet manufacturing and operational excellence.

On Thursday, November 9, the tour bus departs and will make stops at three pallet manufacturers—Pasadena Skid & Pallet, Unipal International, and Wooden Pallets as well as one international logistics service provider and port operator–Katoen Natie. Attendees will get a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the pallet manufacturing process as well as witness the logistics operations of a global supplier of tailor-made solutions for the chemical & automotive industries, consumer goods, electronics, and retail.

Fall Plant Tours

Register on or before August 31st to receive the Early Bird rate and secure your hotel room at The Hilton Houston NASA Clear Lake until October 6th (or until the block is filled).  We hope to see you there!
