The SMB FastTrack program at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013 has expanded, now including even more resources to help participating attendees source processing and packaging innovation with greater speed and efficiency. Launching this year, the SMB FastTrack program is designed to help smaller companies navigate through the 1,600 exhibitors spread over more than 650,000 net square feet.
New additions to the line-up of SMB FastTrack tools and features include:
  • The FastTrack Navigator

Participating attendees can use this planning tool to build a path to visit “must-see” features for small- and medium-sized businesses. The FastTrack Navigator will be an insert to the SMB FastTrack Sourcing Index — the official, exclusive directory for SMB FastTrack, sent pre-show and filled with exhibitors offering special incentives, discounts or other support to SMBs. 

  • The SMB FastTrack Networking Center.

The SMB FastTrack Networking Center will serve as a dedicated area for SMB FastTrack attendees to rest, recharge their electronic devices, find solutions using a PACK EXPO product locator kiosk and meet with exhibitors or industry peers. The lounge will be conveniently located on the show floor.
