For more than 40 years, ICCA has sponsored a biennial Management Conference to allow worldwide corrugated industry executives to come together and share information, in a legal manner, on appropriate issues. Since 2007, ICCA and the World Containerboard Organisation (WCO) have joined together to co-sponsor the Global Summit.

The International Corrugated Case Association (ICCA) / World Containerboard Organisation (WCO) 2019 Global Summit was held May 20-23, 2019 at The Breakers in Palm Beach, Florida, USA. The Fibre Box Association (FBA) Annual Meeting was also a combined event with the Global Summit.
