It contin- ues to be an exciting time for the tube industry as packagers realize how impor- tant tubes are to the growth of their prod- ucts—particularly those in the cosmetic, personal care, pharmaceutical, house- hold and industrial, and food industries. A tube not only holds and protects the product, but in many respects it can be the final "selling point" for attracting consumers—consumers love the aesthet- ics, convenience, and portability of tubes. Tube News helps supports the tube industry and is an important resource. Tube News is all about tubes and only tubes. The magazine's focus is on the exploding global tube market, including market trends, glob- al technology, related equipment, materi- als, and innovative industry developments. The mission of Tube News mirrors the charter of the Tube Council—to inform, educate, and promote tubes through edito- rial features, new product exposures, and awards coverage. As part of our effort to promote and communicate, the Tube Council mem- bership gathered at the Winter Confer- ence in February in Anaheim, CA, where industry topics were discussed and we were afforded presentations from sev- eral associate members. The conference coincided with the WestPack packaging exhibition and provided the member- ship with access to the informational and educational opportunities provided by the organizers and WestPack attendees. The Tube Council will be at HBA in New York City on June 10–12. Our booth will be at the center of the Tubes Pavilion surrounded by member compa- nies that are exhibiting at the trade show. Together, we will have a focused effort to promote tubes. Additionally, on the day preceding HBA, we will hold the Tube Council's annual membership meeting. The Tube Council is and will con- tinue to be an excellent marketing oppor- tunity for members and an important industry resource. We encourage all North American tube manufacturers and those companies providing components and services to these manufacturers to join The Tube Council membership. We also welcome tube-related com- panies to participate in Tube News— through featured stories, editorials, and company advertisements. In the next issue planned for September 2014, we anticipate a greater focus on the Tube Council member companies. If you are a tube manufacturer or a company that supports the tube industry, join our ranks; promote your company; and share new ideas and initiatives with key marketers.
