Pack Expo Las Vegas is debuting an Innovation Stage program, comprising a series of live seminars detailing innovations in the baking and snack industries, among others, and aiming to link show attendees to new packaging and processing technologies.

Professionals in the baking, snack, confectionery and pharmaceutical industries will be able to easily discover packaging and processing innovations at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2011, Sept. 26-28 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, with the premier of the Innovation Stage program. Comprising a series of live seminars, the program will be located on the show floor inside three industry-specific lounges: The Baking and Snack Break; The Candy Bar; and The Rx Lounge. Three 30-minute live seminars will be held in each lounge Sept. 26-Sept. 27, beginning at 11 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. each day. Admission is free and no pre-registration is required to attend.

“The Innovation Stage Program is another example of our customer-centric approach, which puts the attendee at the center of focus," says Charles Yuska, president and CEO of Packaging Machinery Manufacturer’s Institute (PMMI), the Reston, Va.-based host of the show. "Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for attendees to find the packaging and processing innovation they need, and add value to their overall experience at Pack Expo Las Vegas."

Each lounge will also house an "Ask the Expert" forum, where attendees can find guidance from experts on specific packaging- and processing-related challenges. Micro-sites featuring relevant trends and news are also being created, making it faster and easier for attendees to schedule appointments, coordinate purchases and build relationships. The lounges will also host a special reception on the afternoon of Sept. 26, offering a forum for attendees to network with industry peers during the show.
