The Private Label Manufacturers Association announced that Chris Wallace, the Fox television network’s popular host and anchor of Fox News Sunday, will headline the slate of speakers for PLMA’s 2016 Private Label Trade Show, which takes place November 13-15 in Chicago.
Following so closely on the heels of the presidential elections, the business community wants to know what to expect on many big-picture topics: not least the economy, consumer spending, jobs and earnings, trade and government involvement in the private sector, such as regulations on labeling, GMO’s and more. PLMA invited Wallace to share his view of what a new administration taking up residence in the White House could mean for the country moving forward.
Past keynote speakers for PLMA have included media personalities like Lou Dobbs and John Stossel, high-profile business leaders such as Martha Stewart, PayPal President Dan Schulman and Google CIO Douglas Merrill, as well as top retail executives like Whole Foods CEO John Mackey and Trader Joe’s President Doug Rauch.
The keynote breakfast, which takes place prior to the PLMA show floor opening on Monday, Nov. 14, is part of a full program of speakers, seminars and workshops that will focus attention on the most significant market trends affecting the private label industry, the latest consumer research and new store brands opportunities.
