PACK EXPO To Reunite Packaging, Processing Industries In September Live, in-person technology in action for the first time in 18 months is just one of the many features of the only com- prehensive packaging and processing trade show in the world this year: PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO, taking place September 27-29 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. Show producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, will reunite the packaging and processing community with over 1,500 exhibitors, tar- geted, world-class education and countless networking opportunities spread across four expansive halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center. “Registration is already exceeding expectations, and we anticipate well over 20,000 packaging and processing professionals in attendance this September,” said Jim Pit- tas, President and CEO, PMMI. “These numbers indicate an industry eager and more ready than ever to get back together. With thousands of attendees from CPGs and pharma companies already registered to attend and 1,500 exhibiting companies, this is the one place that will unite the entire industry this year”. Now more than ever, it is important for companies to keep up with the ever-evolving needs of their consumers to maintain a competitive edge. PACK EXPO Las Vegas and co-located Healthcare Packaging EXPO is a critical piece of the puzzle for addressing packaging and pro- cessing challenges and accomplishing business goals. “With so many solutions on display and access to the top exhibitors and industry experts, attendees in Las Ve- gas can accomplish more in three days than a year’s worth of research,” said Laura Thompson, Vice President, Trade Shows. “So often we hear from past attendees who dis- covered technologies that solved challenges they didn’t even know existed.” Rian Mabrey of Hello Fresh reinforces this benefit of the show. “PACK EXPO provides the biggest opportunity to meet with potential suppliers all in one place, see sam- ples and make connections,” he says. “We’ve discovered the most exciting innovations by simply wandering the show floor.” In today’s manufacturing environment, processing and packaging often come together as an integrated system, making it more critical than ever to bring both packaging and processing solutions under one roof. To meet this growing need, The Processing Zone returns with front- of-the-line solutions such as homogenizing, heat treating, forming/sizing and coating to help increase efficiency, achieve total system integration and ensure food safety. New in 2021 is the Processing Innovation stage, focusing on the latest processing breakthroughs. Additional pavilions include the PACKage Printing Pavil- ion, showcasing the latest in cost-effective digital printing CONTINUED ON PAGE 46
