Pack Jam is an annual student-led conference hosted at packaging universities nationwide. This year, its in-person return is happening at Clemson University with the theme of "Pack is Back."

Over three days, students can participate in social and educational events to connect themselves to their packaging peers. 

Additionally, industry professionals will talk with students about current trends in the packaging industry and provide advice via networking.
