As one of the many exhibiting companies at this year’s PACK EXPO International, we at WeightPack were thrilled to interact with so many of our current and future customers. We didn’t realize just how many we were going to get to meet over the four-day event. The 2014 PACK EXPO drew over 48,600 attendees, setting an attendance record with a jump of 6.5 percent over the previous record set in 2012.
Held in Chicago, the PACK EXPO is the largest packaging and processing trade show in North America. The exhibit space in McCormick Space was filled with us, as well as 2,351 other exhibiting companies – nearly a 20% leap over the 2012 event. This was clearly a successful show, no matter what you are using to judge it.
Coordinated by the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute, this trade show, like many others, provides us with a great opportunity to socialize and network with customers as well as other companies that share in our industry. The fact that this year’s expo was tied in with the inaugural Pharma EXPO increased the breadth of customers we got to deal with, and who got to see what we can offer.
While it’s not likely to draw quite the same sized crowd, we’re looking forward to taking part in the inaugural PACK EXPO Las Vegas, set to take place September 28th through 30th at the Las Vegas Convention Center in Las Vegas, Nevada. This is a co-hosted event with Pharma Expo 2015 and many are expected to attend with over a thousand exhibitors and thousands attendees from the food, beverage, personal care and pharmaceutical industries will also be there.
So stop by our booth at PACK EXPO Las Vegas if you’re one of the thousands of attendees looking for the latest solution for your liquid packaging needs. We’ll be happy to chat with you and show you what we can offer.
