The 2016 TAPPI/AICC SuperCorrExpo® is the most powerful global hub of corrugated networking and educational opportunities in the Western Hemisphere. Happening every four years, SuperCorrExpo® is the place to view machinery and innovations from every leading name in the industry under one roof. 2016 SuperCorrExpo will take place October 17-20, for the first time, at the Orlando Convention Center in Orlando, Fla., USA—a leading international destination for both business and leisure travelers.

With more than 6,000 attendees expected, including suppliers, converters, and box plant executives, this year promises to be a remarkable industry experience filled with top notch keynote speakers, workshops, and product demonstrations from exhibitors throughout 130,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space.
 
Ron Sasine, principal of Hudson Windsor LLC and former senior director of packaging procurement at Walmart, will be delivering one of the keynote speeches this year on Tuesday, October 18, from 9:35-10:15 a.m. From 2009 to 2015, Ron served as Walmart’s Senior Director of Packaging, where he was responsible for packaging design, execution, and sourcing for the company’s largest global brands. He is experienced in creating a new visual look for more than 7,000 items, bringing a national brand design standard to the Great Value, Spring Valley, Equate Beauty, and Parents’ Choice brands. He also created first-of-its-kind supply chain visibility for the global packaging market and Walmart’s more than 5,000 packaging providers. And, he led Walmart’s sustainable packaging initiatives, reducing greenhouse gas impact by nearly 10%.
 
Ron’s background includes the role of a marketing and manufacturing executive with MeadWestvaco (now WestRock), where he led export sales of linerboard to Central America, directed international sales integration and business development, and served seven years as an expatriate heading up M&A for MeadWestvaco’s corrugated packaging and paperboard operations in Brazil and Latin America.

Ron’s vast experience and impressive background will make him an intriguing speaker for all attendees. He is a frequent commentator on the packaging industry and has been published in The New York Times, CNBC, and USAToday.
 
SuperCorrExpo® is the largest exposition featuring working machinery for corrugated solution seekers in the Western Hemisphere. More than 300 industry suppliers gather with thousands of industry leaders from 70 countries at SuperCorrExpo. The four-day exposition is hosted at the Orlando County Convention Center by two of the corrugated industry’s leading associations, TAPPI and AICC.
