PAC Strapping to Exhibit at Pack Expo

As we mentioned in an earlier blog post this year we’ll be exhibiting at this year’s Pack Expo for the 10th year in row. This is the largest show for the industrial packaging business in North America and is commonly attended by sales managers, engineers, production supervisors, purchasers, package designers, and more. Attendees come from around the world to meet with exhibitors from a variety of industries including food and beverage, chemical, electronics, metals, paper, and more as well as see the latest packaging technologies.

The show runs from Nov. 2-5th and boasts over 2,000 exhibitors and will have over 1.2 million net square feet at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Pack Expo will also host educational seminars and presentations throughout the expo. The Innovation Stage will have free 30 minute seminars throughout expo with presentations from companies such as ConAgra and GE. PMMI will also host two training sessions, the Risk Assessment Workshop on Oct. 31-Nov. 1 and the Certified Trainer Workshop on Nov. 3-4.

For our part we will be showcasing some of our new and innovative equipment at booth 8265 in the Lakeside Upper Hall. Visitors can see our PAC Modular Pallet Strapping System and we’ll also be displaying new polyester strapping that makes an ideal replacement for steel strapping. Be sure to stop by our booth if you’re attending and for our other East Coast friends who can’t make it to Chicago, PMMI will hold Pack Expo East in Philadelphia on February 16-18th, 2015.

PAC Strapping Prepares for Pack Expo

Although Pack Expo isn’t until November, it’s already time to start making preparations to attend. Tickets to attend are already available and as the largest packaging show in North America companies are already starting to register and book hotels. Produced by the PMMI the expo brings 50-60,000 attendees to Chicago, IL from all over the world.

Companies that wish to attend can register now until October 3rd for a reduced registration rate for $30. Additionally by registering early attendees can receive their badge in the mail and avoid registration lines at the expo. Pack Expo also offers reduced rates on hotels and encourages attendees to book early as room sell out quickly.

Attendees can also view floor plans, find exhibitors, see the schedule of events, and find helpful quick links. This year’s expo also includes access to the brand new Pharma Expo which will be conveniently located across the bridge in the West Building of McCormick Place.
