Processing Zone Sells Out at PMMI's PACK EXPO Las Vegas

May 14, 2013

PMMI, owner and producer of PACK EXPO Las Vegas, has sold out the exhibit space for The Processing Zone for its upcoming show Sept. 23-25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  

The pavilion, located in the South Hall of the LVCC, will house a wide range of processing technologies for manufacturers in the baking and snack, beverage, dairy and confectionery industries, as well as other vertical sectors.

“Since debuting at PACK EXPO in 2010, the number of solutions providers exhibiting in The Processing Zone has increased by 42 percent,” said Jim Pittas, vice president, Trade Shows, PMMI.

He added, “This growth stems from the fact that food and beverage processors continue to take a unified approach to packaging and processing and seek opportunities to be connected to solutions for the entire manufacturing lines.”

The Processing Zone represents only a small segment of exhibitors highlighting processing technologies at the show.

Companies offering processing solutions will also be located throughout the exhibit halls, alongside packaging equipment and materials and containers suppliers. The show is on tap to have more than 1,600 exhibitors and 700,000-plus net square feet of exhibit space.

Food and beverage processors also will have access to a number of other resources at PACK EXPO Las Vegas:

The Confectionery Pavilion, sponsored by the National Confectioners Association (NCA), will link attendees with equipment and materials that maximize flexibility, enhance convenience and protect product freshness.

The Baking-Snack Break lounge, endorsed by the Snack Food Association, and The Candy Bar lounge, sponsored by NCA, will offer networking opportunities and access to experts who can provide guidance on packaging- and processing-related challenges.

The Beverage Cooler Lounge, endorsed by the International Society of Beverage Technologists, will proovide a casual forum for attendees to network and exchange ideas with peers, as well as Ask-the-Expert sessions for seeking technical advice.

The Food Safety Summit Resource Center will help processors learn about the latest breakthroughs in food safety technologies and source solutions to the challenges facing the industry.

Access to free education with the return of Innovation Stage. Details about presentation topics and times will be announced closer to the show.
