FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Save The Date for Annual JPMA Summit @ ICPHSO
Based on member demand, the JPMA Summit is back! Come together with other industry leaders as JPMA re-introduces its regulatory summit on Thursday, February 28, 2019, held this year in conjunction with The International Consumer Product Health and Safety Organization (ICPHSO) Annual Meeting and Training Symposium, which will run February 25-28, in Washington, DC.

The JPMA Summit has historically included programming that gets to the heart of the compliance, regulatory, legislative and public affairs issues that are directly impacting the juvenile products industry. As in the past, the Summit will curate the many external factors impacting your business decisions and deliver timely, targeted information and opportunities for dialogue with industry thought leaders and direct access to commissioners and staff from regulatory agencies (pending scheduling changes). By teaming up with ICPHSO, a conference many of our members regularly attend, we will leverage both your travel time and dollars and augment both organizations' programming to offer a comprehensive experience for the baby products industry professional.

The 2019 JPMA Summit will focus on the most relevant state, federal and global regulatory standards and trends. Attendees will have the opportunity to:
  • Stay on the inside track about state legislative and regulatory activity, the areas of heightened state action, and expanding state reporting requirements related to juvenile products.
  • Receive analysis about CPSC activity including the enactment of new regulations, revisions to existing CPSC rules, and other official actions by the Commission.
  • Hear directly from leaders of the Consumer Product Safety Commission and National Highway Traffic Safety Administration during two engaging program keynotes (pending schedule changes)
  • Learn about recent JPMA legislative and regulatory achievements that have benefited manufacturers, retailers and the industry and what our agenda contains for 2019.
  • Discuss new threats to the industry including tariffs, lack of alignment in global standards development and enforcement, bankruptcy risks, chemicals regulation, the changing retail environment, counterfeiting and compliance in the era of online sales.
  • Establish lasting connections with the JPMA team members who remain your ongoing compliance, regulatory and legislative resources, the JPMA board of directors who sets strategic guidance for the organization, and your industry peers who share common challenges and goals.
Don’t miss this opportunity to work together through JPMA to ensure your company and our industry have a voice.

The JPMA Summit will begin at 12:30pm on February 28, and a networking reception will immediately follow the summit programming from 5:00 to 6:30 p.m. All activities will be held at the Renaissance Washington DC, Downtown Hotel.
