From October 14 to 17, we were in Chicago, Ill., attending PACK EXPO International, the largest packaging event in the world.
Approximately 50,000 packaging industry professionals attended PACK EXPO International, which featured 2,500 exhibitors at McCormick Place in Chicago. There were representatives from multiple industries, such as pharmaceutical, food and beverage, household, beauty and more.
PMMI – The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies – was the show owner and producer.
“The continued success of PACK EXPO is a testament to not only our industry’s growth but PMMI’s commitment to offering a world-class environment for exhibitors to offer cutting-edge solutions to our attendees,” says Jim Pittas, CEO, PMMI. “We are committed to adding value by constantly improving our show offerings to assist in driving the packaging industry into the future.”
In addition to visiting the various booths, attendees could also attend free, 30-minute seminars throughout the day and numerous presentations. The PACK EXPO floor featured four pavilions: the new PACKage Printing Pavilion, the Containers and Materials Pavilion, the Confectionary Pavilion and the Reusable Packaging Pavilion.
Some of the solutions the pavilions included were:
- Digital packaging solutions
- Reducing waste and increasing sustainability
- Increasing efficiency in your supply chain
