PACK EXPO International 2012: Welcome to the Show
This year’s show is the biggest in a decade, touting a wealth of exhibitors, education and excitement.
PACK EXPO International 2012 is going to be a big show, the biggest in 10 years to be exact. The show sold out on July 20, promising big size and big success.
“The sold out status of PACK EXPO speaks volumes to its value as a showcase for the packaging and processing industries,” says Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI. “With space completely gone three months out, the show has surpassed even our expectations.”
PACK EXPO International 2012, produced by PMMI, will be held at McCormick Place in Chicago on October 28-31, 2012. It will be the largest edition of the show since 2002, with a record 1,800-plus exhibitors showing off the latest in packaging and processing innovation across more than 1.1 million net square feet of exhibit space.
“This year there’s just been a lot of excitement around PACK EXPO. We had a sold out exhibit floor really early in the process, which is great. We are getting a lot of interest in a lot of our programs, a lot of engagement by our exhibitors. We are very excited about this year’s show; I think it’s going to be the biggest and best attended in a long time. Last year we had a great and excellent show and this year is shaping up to be even better,” says Maria Ferrante, vice president of education and workforce development, PMMI.
PACK EXPO attendees will enjoy networking, lectures, industry pavilions and more packaging and processing features. Read on for just a taste of what to expect at this year’s show.
