Count on the Cross-Pollination of Ideas at PACK EXPO Las Vegas


There are a lot of numbers associated with PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015 (Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas; Sept. 28-30): 30,000 attendees, 800,000 net square feet of exhibit space, 2,000+ exhibitors. Among those exhibitors, Pro Mach (Booth C-3423) adds its own number, bringing 17 new products to the show, according to Pro Mach’s Vice President, Marketing, John Eklund.

“We chose PACK EXPO Las Vegas for these product launches because no other show provides the same level of exposure for Pro Mach. We expect to meet high-level buyers from over 40 vertical markets. It’s an excellent use of our time and resources,” says Eklund.

Eklund says Pro Mach’s new solutions range from energy recovery to robotics to remote solution technologies. Attendees can visit any of its more than 20 exhibiting brands — they’re adjacent to each other in a large “island” set up — and see how the various Pro Mach brands can handle their products from primary packaging at the front of the packaging line all the way to secondary packaging at the end of the packaging line.

“Because of the size and scope of PACK EXPO Las Vegas, we’re able to have over 70 machines on site. Within our island, it’s easy for us to present our solutions holistically, walking customers between solutions, so they can see complementary technologies in action that can build up to create solutions for their entire packaging line,” Eklund adds.

Pro Mach’s approach to exhibiting underscores the power of the cross-pollination of ideas — a concept that’s a hallmark of PACK EXPO trade shows. With the co-location of Pharma EXPO, produced in partnership by PMMI and the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE), PACK EXPO Las Vegas will provide unmatched access to suppliers and solutions with crossover technologies from industries such as food, beverage and personal care.

“The comprehensive nature of PACK EXPO, its depth and breadth, makes it an ideal place for Pro Mach to exhibit,” Eklund says. “It’s all about delivering solutions to our customers. PACK EXPO makes it easy for attendees to find answers — and for us to provide them.”
