PACK EXPO Las Vegas Closes Year for the Ages

A quick look ahead to 2018’s slate of shows.

PACK EXPO Las Vegas brought to a close the most ambitious trade show year in the long history of PMMI. I am happy to say that was the largest PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO in our more than two decades of hosting events in the desert.

With over 2,000-plus exhibiting companies spanning nearly 900,000 net square feet of exhibit floor, it was also the largest packaging show in the Americas in 2017.

Looking ahead to 2018, registration and exhibit sales are officially open for PACK EXPO East (April 16—18, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Convention Center). PACK EXPO East is your East Coast connection to the more than one-third of U.S. consumer packaged goods companies (CPGs) located within 200 miles of Philadelphia. At least 6,000 professionals from leading packaging goods companies located on the East Coast will attend. Make sure you’re there too.

EXPO PACK México returns to Mexico City June 5-8 at EXPO Santa Fe México with over 1,000 exhibitors showcasing the latest solutions in packaging and processing machinery, materials, containers, and other related goods and services. Stay ahead of your competition on the most recent industry trends with the comprehensive education program and networking activities of EXPO PACK México.

Finally, be ready for any packaging or production challenge that comes along when you attend PACK EXPO International and Healthcare Packaging EXPO 2018, Oct. 14 – 17, at McCormick Place, Chicago. It will be the largest Packaging trade show in 2018, and a must-attend event for anyone in the packaging sector.

I sincerely hope PACK EXPO Las Vegas provided you actionable business opportunities and I look forward to seeing you at one of our future events
