JPMA hosts hybrid summit event in May

MOUNT LAUREL, N.J. – The Juvenile Products Manufacturers Association (JPMA) has opened registration for its annual hybrid online and in-person Summit, which will focus on how the baby and children’s products industry can work together to improve baby and child safety.

The Summit will include virtual sessions from May 3-5 and in-person sessions in Washington, D.C. from May 10-12. In both forums, JPMA members and others interested in child safety will have a chance to discuss ways to continue creating and promoting safe products for babies and children.

“The JPMA Summit is the most important industry event of the year,” said Kelly Mariotti, JPMA executive director. “In both the virtual and in-person sessions, we’re bringing together industry experts, government officials and other key decision makers to share curated content that is essential to our industry.
