More than 1,600 processing and packaging solutions providers are on board to occupy over 700,000 net sq ft, making the 2013 edition the largest Pack Expo Las Vegas since the event first opened in 1995. It’s also North America’s most comprehensive resource for packaging and processing innovation by far this year.

“Our exhibitor numbers are already up 15%, and the floor itself has expanded by 12% compared to the 2011 Las Vegas show,” offered Charles Yuska, president and CEO of PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, owner and producer of Pack Expo. PMMI is a trade association representing more than 600 packaging and processing supply-chain companies that provide a full range of packaging and processing machinery, materials, components, and containers.

Pack Expo Las Vegas 2013 will be held September 23 to 25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center and is also on track to play host to its largest audience of attendees. Attendance is expected to well exceed 26,000 manufacturing professionals from food, beverage, pharmaceutical, and other industries — a 10% increase over 2011 numbers.

But it’s about more than booth space. PMMI is adding a third Innovation Stage to expand Pack Expo’s on-floor educational programming, delivering even more insights to attendees looking to learn about ways to enhance sustainability, efficiency, automation, and food-safety measures. Pack Expo adds new depth to the trade show with curated pavilions and lounges that include “ask the expert” desks. Other highlights include free half-hour seminars by leading companies, plus free consultation for those interested in food-safety compliance.
