PMMI's Expo Pack Mexico Sells Out Exhibit Space

June 4, 2012

The Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute’s Expo Pack Mexico has sold out all of its exhibit space in advance of the June 26-29 event at Centro Banamex in Mexico City.

The 193,800 net square feet-plus showfloor will be approximately 10-percent larger than 2011, featuring 910 exhibitors from 26 nations, according to show officials.

“Packaging and processing are functions of companies all over the world, and the increasingly global nature of EXPO PACK México reflects that reality,” said Jose Martinez, director of PMMI’s Latin America office.

He added, “We are also expecting 25,000 attendees, from 30 nations.”

There also will be 10 international pavilions, including Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Guatemala, Peru, Spain, Taiwan and the United States.

“Global sourcing and global production are realities for companies that produce any number of products, from baked goods to pharmaceuticals,” Martinez said.

He added, “And total systems solutions are critical.”

Pavilions on the showfloor are grouped into attendee’s needs, according to show officials.

Here is a sampling of what will be available:

The PROCESA Pavilion will feature the latest developments in processing machinery and technology for the fruit and vegetable, beverage, dairy, meat, poultry, seafood, frozen and preserved foods industries all in one designated area.

Exhibitors who want to stress their sustainable products and services will be in the EXPO PACK Verde Pavilion.

Sponsored by the Mexican Packaging Association (AMEE), the Innovations Pavilion spotlights the winners of the Envases Estalares Awards and Sustainable Packaging Awards.

Three days of educational programming also will be a part of the event, featuring topics such as Practical Aspects of Sustainability, Trends in Design, Machinery and Consumers and Product Safety/Consumer Protection.

“AMEE has assembled an impressive group of experts discussing timely subjects,” Martinez said.

He added, “Each day, visitors will hear the latest information from major companies including Eastman Chemical, Walmart México, PMMI, Nielsen Mexico, Mintel and Tetra Pack.”

Water Stewardship Efforts MGM Resorts understands the importance of using water efficiently, especially in the desert destination of Las Vegas. Conserving water has always been part of the mission, but MGM Resorts has expanded its ambition into water stewardship. In 2022, MGM Resorts President and CEO Bill Hornbuckle signed the CEO Water Mandate—a UN Global Compact initiative mobilizing business leaders to advance water stewardship. MGM Resorts International was the first gaming company to take this important step. MGM Resorts replaced 200,000 square feet of real grass with drought-tolerant landscaping in Las Vegas. MGM Resorts pledges to reduce water withdrawal intensity by 33% by 2025 and by 35% by 2030. From 2007-2021, use of more than 5.6 billion gallons of water was avoided because of conservation efforts. Caring for One Another MGM Resorts’ Food Donations Program collects and preserves unserved food from conventions held at MGM Resorts properties, then safely donates to food insecure people in the community. Since the program’s launch in 2016, more than 3.7 million meals toward a 2025 goal of 5 million meals have been donated into the community. Donations include: Unserved perishable prepared foods from events Perishable unprepared food from MGM Resorts’ kitchens Nonperishable food items from minibars and warehouses The collaboration with Southern Nevada’s primary food bank, Three Square, has developed the infrastructure needed to safely collect, transport, and store food from MGM Resorts properties in Las Vegas, reducing food waste while serving the community.
