PACK EXPO adds East Coast show

April 15, 2013

Reston, Va.-based Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI), the owner and producer of the PACK EXPO trade shows, today announced a brand-new regional event: PACK EXPO East, coming to Philadelphia Feb. 2-4, 2015. PMMI will stage the event at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

“There’s a real need in the market for first-class events that are a bit closer to home,” says Rick Fox Jr., president, Fox IV Technologies, who chairs PMMI’s board of directors. “About 18 months ago, PMMI commissioned Westat, a leading research firm, to reach out to customers about the need for a regional event, and if they would support one. The results were extremely positive.”

PMMI expects to draw attendees from a range of critical market segments including food, beverage, personal care, electronics and pharmaceutical and medical devices.

“Philadelphia is within easy driving distance of 40% of the U.S. population, and that area includes large consumer goods companies, industrial manufacturers and a huge life sciences community,” Fox adds. “PACK EXPO East is positioned well to help brand owners find the solutions they need, a bit closer to home.”

Space sales for PACK EXPO East 2015 will open during PACK EXPO Las Vegas, which will be held Sept. 23-25 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
