RESTON, VA | The upcoming PACK EXPO is breaking records, reports owner and producer PMMI, the Assn. for Packaging and Processing Technologies. Scheduled for September 23–25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the event is still growing.
“After expanding the show floor to accommodate supplier demand, we plan to add yet more exhibit space,” says PMMI president and CEO Charles D. Yuska. More than 1,600 processing and packaging solutions providers are expected to occupy more than 700,000 net sq ft, making the 2013 edition the largest PACK EXPO Las Vegas since the event first opened in 1995.
“Our exhibitor numbers are already up 15 percent, and the floor itself has expanded by 12 percent compared to the 2011 Las Vegas show,” says Yuska.
PMMI has added a third Innovation Stage to expand PACK EXPO’s on-floor educational programming, which will feature insights on ways to enhance sustainability, efficiency, automation, and food safety measures.
The event is also on track to play host to its largest audience of attendees. Attendance is expected to well exceed 26,000 manufacturing professionals from the baking and snack, beverage, confectionery, pharmaceutical, and other industries, a 10% increase over 2011 numbers.
Discounted registration rates of $30 per person apply until September 9, 2013; costs increase to $60 per person after that date and on-site.
