Contract Packagers increase presence to brands at PACK EXPO 2014
The Contract Packaging Association Sourcing Center will debut at the big expo this fall in Chicago
Building on its increased presence at last year's expo, the Contract Packaging Association has announced its plans for a Sourcing Center in its booth at PACK EXPO International 2014. The expo will be held at McCormick Place, Chicago, Nov. 2 - 5.
“In addition to the CPA members who will exhibit there, the Contract Packaging Association Sourcing Center will feature a display of innovative packages alongside experts who can speak to the benefits of using contract packagers,” says Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO of the show's organizer and owner, PMMI. The CPA Sourcing Center builds on the success of 2013's Packaging Resource Center, and will showcase for the capabilities of contract packagers, and CPA members will be on hand to speak with brands about their needs.
“The opportunity to collaborate with PMMI is very exciting. PACK EXPO consistently attracts top-level brands and buyers, and they are the target market for our messages about the role contract packagers can play,” says CPA President Chris Nutley, president, MSW Packaging. “This gives us a chance to present a full spectrum of contract packaging solutions and knowledge at the most comprehensive packaging and processing trade show in North America this year.”
PACK EXPO and Pharma EXPO will be concurrent and co-located; PMMI anticipates the two events will draw a combined 50,000 attendees, with 2,000 exhibitors in 1.1 million net square feet of exhibit space.
The Contract Packaging Sourcing Center will be located on the Grand Concourse adjacent to the Association Pavilion, near the entrance of the North Hall.
