ARLINGTON, VA, USA—Pack Expo International may be an appealing venue for converters; that's what the packaging show organizer, Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI), is saying in its latest release promoting the show.
According to PMMI, the five-day venue will feature the latest advances in bag and box making machinery, pouch formers, printers, die cutters, rewinders, slitters, and tension-control equipment. Also featured, reports PMMI, will be holographic materials, papers, foils, films, adhesives, and coating materials "to promote brands at point-of-sale and protect products through distribution and use."
PMMI urges converters to consider a visit to the Windy City this fall for the show; Charles Yuska, PMMI president, says: "Pack Expo is the most comprehensive packaging technology show, where converters can view the machinery that runs their products. Keeping current of the latest packaging machinery and materials will enable them to adapt their products and gain the competitive edge in the converting industry."
