Registration is now open for the co-located Pack Expo Las Vegas and the Healthcare Packaging Expo 2021. Both will take place September 27 – 29 at the Las Vegas Convention Center to welcome the industry back together “at the only comprehensive packaging and processing event in the world this year,” said organizers.
“We continuously monitor the industry, and exhibitors and attendees alike are eager to return to conducting business and experiencing new machinery, materials, technologies and solutions in-person,” said Jim Pittas, President and CEO of tradeshow producer PMMI (The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies – Herndon, Virginia). “There’s no substitute for seeing technology up close, manipulating materials and containers, experiencing controls systems, speaking to multiple vendors and getting answers on the spot,” he pointed out.
Spaced across four large convention centre halls, Pack Expo Las Vegas will offer countless opportunities for ideas from 40-plus vertical markets. The co-located Healthcare Packaging Expo will provide “the broadest range of equipment and technology solutions” for life sciences, showcasing targeted solutions for pharmaceutical, medical device, nutraceuticals and biologics. “Our industry’s essential role over the past year shed light on new technological needs, and these improvements and advancements in equipment and technology will continue to evolve,” said Laura Thompson, VP of Tradeshows at PMMI. “Walking the aisles, connecting with colleagues and meeting new people will allow attendees to discover solutions they didn’t even know they needed.”
Free educational sessions will provide chances to grow, learn and accomplish professional goals with suppliers showcasing breakthrough technologies, best practices and case studies at the Innovation Stages. The Forum, an interactive stage encouraging open discussions with industry experts, the Reusable Packaging Stage, hosted by the Reusable Packaging Association, and the new Pack to the Future Stage are also must-visit show-floor destinations to learn about the latest trends and discuss the future of the industry.
Pack Expo Las Vegas 2021 will also feature the return of the Processing Zone with solutions from food processing and systems, food safety, engineering, design and construction services, and more. The Package Printing Pavilion will explore digital printing and converting technologies and labeling, coding and marking solutions. The Containers and Materials Pavilion will showcase the innovative packages and solutions that are proven to capture the eyes of consumers. The Confectionary Pavilion will house industry-specific solutions for candy and snack-food enthusiasts.
