Registration and housing for PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2011 (September 26–28, Las Vegas Convention Center) are open at Packexpo.com.

“Pack Expo Las Vegas will easily be the largest processing and packaging trade show in North America this year,” says Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO of show producer PMMI. Projections for the trade show: more than 1,200 exhibitors; 25,000 attendees; and nearly 600,000 net square feet of exhibit space.

“Our initial estimate was 500,000 square feet, but we had to add space to respond to exhibitor demand,” Yuska adds. “Attendees at Pack Expo can see technology in action, meet face-to-face with suppliers and engage experts in one-on-one conversations. It really is the best place in North America for finding total systems solutions.”

The September event will introduce processing technologies - and The Processing Zone - to the show floor.

“Pack Expo attendees are seeking out processing and packaging solutions. We know that from our research and the success of the Processing Zone at the Pack Expo show in Chicago. "Bringing Processing to the Las Vegas show floor was a clear choice,” Yuska says. “Another exciting new feature for 2011 will be the newest Pack Expo Pavilion, The Pharmaceutical Pavilion.”

The specialty area will be a hub of pharmaceutical processing and packaging solutions providers, and will serve as a clear, easy-to-find starting point for attendees searching for pharmaceutical solutions.

Other specialty areas include the Confectionery Pavilion, sponsored by the National Confectioners Association (NCA); the Reusable Packaging Pavilion, sponsored by the Reusable Packaging Association (RPA); and the Brand Zone-containers & materials that shape winning brands.
