Industry-Defining Associations Welcomed to PACK EXPO International

The Partner Program returns to Pack Expo Iternational, welcoming 31 associations and 11 international pavilion organizers committed to better serving their members and supporting the processing and packaging industries, reports Pack Expo producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.

“The Pack Expo portfolio of trade shows brings together the best of the processing and packaging industries looking for solutions to industry-wide issues,” says Jim Pittas, senior vice president, PMMI. “The associations in the Partner Program are a strong resource for these attendees and exhibitors, and have been a valuable asset to the Pack Expo shows.”

More tan 25 associations that will partner with Pack Expo International 2016 and 11 International Pavilion Organizers. “The Partner Program provides a nice reciprocal marketing benefit for both IoPP and PMMI, whereby more people in the packaging industry can learn about IoPP’s excellent educational programs and IoPP members can stay on top of all the need-to-knows about Pack Expo,” says Jim George, IoPP’s director of education. “The program is a win-win year in and year out, a huge mutual benefit that enables IoPP and PMMI to continue our robust partnership.”
