The Contract Packaging Association (CPA) hosts the Contract Packaging Sourcing Center at PACK EXPO International in Chicago on Nov. 6-9 at McCormick Place, in booth N-5801.

The Sourcing Center is a place where brand owners interested in contract packaging and manufacturing services can learn about CPA members and how to source these service providers. Visitors will experience real examples of contract packaged and manufactured goods from CPA members and have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with industry experts. The Sourcing Center is also a place for contract packagers and manufacturers to learn about CPA and the benefits of membership.

“The Association Partner Pavilion, located in the North Hall at PACK EXPO International, brings together organizations with services and expertise across all markets in the processing and packaging industry. This pavilion provides attendees the opportunity to connect with industry leaders, gain knowledge within specific market segments or find innovative solutions for existing challenges,” PMMI president and CEO Charles Yuska says.

CPA Managing Director Nikki Johnson echoes Yuska’s sentiment: “Participation in the Association Partner Pavilion at PACK EXPO International provides CPA with the opportunity to serve the industry and its members. The Contract Packaging Sourcing Center is the hub at PACK EXPO for all interested in contract packaging and contract manufacturing.”

Also featured at the Sourcing Center on Nov. 8 from 3:30 to 5 p.m. is the CPA Meet & Greet Happy Hour, which gives attendees an opportunity to mingle with CPA members, prospective members and other packaging industry VIPs.

“We are looking forward to this year’s show, and we are expecting a heavy turnout throughout the event,” Johnson says.
