PACK EXPO Las Vegas Promises to be Big


RESTON, VA | PMMI, The Assn. for Packaging and Processing Technologies, anticipates this year’s PACK EXPO Las Vegas will be the largest ever. Scheduled for September 28–30 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the show will include the Las Vegas debut of Pharma EXPO, ( produced in partnership with the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE).

Producers expect the event will be bolstered by optimistic reports on the manufacturing sector and will bring together more than 2,000 exhibitors showing their processing and packaging innovations to 30,000 attendees in over 800,000 net sq ft of exhibit space. Registration is available online.

“By connecting manufacturing professionals and suppliers representing so many different market segments, PACK EXPO events play a critical role in driving manufacturing forward,” says Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO of PMMI.

The benefit of co-locating PACK EXPO and Pharma EXPO lies in the common challenges and solutions the industries face, Yuska adds. “PACK EXPO and Pharma EXPO offer a unique opportunity to find inspiration and ‘cross-pollinate’ ideas across applications and industries.”

The co-located will include a variety of customer-centric features designed to direct them to the technologies they need. Pavilions include The Processing Zone, a hub for processing innovations, and The Brand Zone, a showcase for materials and containers to shape brands. Attendees from the baking and snack, beverage and confectionery sectors can network with peers and suppliers at their respective industry-specific lounges—The Baking–Snack Break, The Beverage Cooler, and The Candy Bar.

Organizers say attendees can also gain strategic insights on material and equipment trends, regulatory challenges and best practices to advance operations with free on-floor educational programming at the Innovation Stage, exhibitor booths, the Center for Trends & Technology, sponsored by Rockwell Automation and its PartnerNetwork, the Food Safety Summit Resource Center, and ISPE’s conference program.
