RESTON, VA. — PACK EXPO Las Vegas, which runs Sept. 23-25, is expanding the show floor yet again to meet supplier demand.
Additionally, PMMI, the owner and producer of PACK EXPO Las Vegas, has added a third Innovation Stage to broaden the exhibition’s on-floor educational programming that will address such issues as efficiency, automation and food safety measures.
“With just two months before show time, PACK EXPO is still growing,” said Charles D. Yuska, president and chief executive officer of PMMI. “After expanding the show floor to accommodate supplier demand, we plan to add yet more exhibit space.”
More than 1,600 processing and packaging solutions providers are expected to occupy more than 700,000 square feet, making this year’s show the largest PACK EXPO Las Vegas since the event made its debut in 1995.
“Our exhibitor numbers are already up 15%, and the floor itself has expanded by 12% compared to the 2011 Las Vegas show,” Mr. Yuska said.
Attendance is expected to exceed 26,000 manufacturing professionals from the baking and snack, confectionery and other industries — a 10% increase over 2011 numbers.
