October PACK EXPO International Show Sold Out in Chicago
Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute, owner and producer of the PACK EXPO trade shows, has sold out its PACK EXPO International on tap Oct. 28-31 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
“The sold out status of PACK EXPO speaks volumes to its value as a showcase for the packaging and processing industries,” said Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI.
He added, “With space completely gone three months out, the show has surpassed even our expectations.”
PACK EXPO International 2012 will be the largest edition of the show since 2002, with a record 1,800 plus exhibitors on 1.1 million net square feet of exhibit space.
“With new and returning industry pavilions and lounges, partnerships with innovators like Material ConneXions and Mintel, and industry expertise across the show floor and in the conference halls, PACK EXPO International 2012 will be an event that highlights all the best these industries have to offer,” Yuska said.
In addition to lounges dedicated to the beverage, baking and snack, confectionery and pharmaceutical industries, the show will feature expertise from the National Confectioners Association, the Association of Independent Corrugated Converters, the International Society of Beverage Technologists and several chapters of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering.
In addition to a busy showfloor, PACK EXPO 2012 will also see the return of the PACK EXPO Lecture Series, with comedian and pundit Dennis Miller and commentator James Carville taking the stage Oct. 28.
“The discussion between Carville and Miller promises to be not only engaging and entertaining, but particularly relevant in this election year,” Yuska said. “We’re looking forward to a great event.”
