Camille Corr ChismOwner, Indigo Packaging and Consulting, LLC
It's amazing just to have all of the Automotive Packaging experts here. I mean this is the place that the automotive packaging people convene every year, and just to be in this space, and to have thought leaders and people working together, this is the place you should be
Mike CostelloProgram Manager, Pakfab Engineered Solutions
We do so many other shows every year and this is the only one we sponsor and there's a reason for it. I think this is our most productive one, we get the most out of it. There's a lot of one-on-one face time. The networking is really key with the smaller group. You get to spend a lot of time getting into details, and knowing and what they're dealing with.
Sarena KruegerrVice President, Marketing, TriEnda
This is my favorite event of the year. The quality of the speakers, the venue, the OEM participation–is phenomenal...If you were on the fence about going to AutoPack Summit, it is such a great experience for networking and learning about new solutions, that honestly you would be doing yourself a disservice by not going.
David LesterPackaging Engineer, Magna Decostar
It's value for networking, you get to see a lot of you customers in person, that you deal with a lot, that you don't normally see, and also you deal with some suppliers that are there that you may have an interest in some of their products.

Tom SalemiRegional Account Manager, Orbis
We're all experiencing these challenges right now and you've just got to put your nose to the grindstone and work through it and get creative. Be a problem solver. Find solutions, that's the big thing.
Brandon VolsonPackaging Engineer, Lucid Motors
You'll see a diverse group of individuals in the automotive packaging world. It won't just be OEMs boring you to death with what they do. You'll have rack vendors, other packaging suppliers there that can properly solve some of your issues or constraints that you see everyday.
Tim SlickerFounder & GM, Crate Pros
I would say probably as a whole, the thing that I was surprised the most about was just the access to packaging engineers and decision makers within our industry....and I am coming away with a lot more knowledge and a lot more connections in this industry than I came in with.
Ryan MacekLogistics Planning Lead, Body Shop, BWM
I think there's a lot of common problems that we've got within the industry and it's good to talk about those problems and what some of the solutions could be, or even a call to the industry to help with some of those problems.
