CPA Sourcing Center returns to Pack Expo
The 2nd Annual Contract Packaging Association Sourcing Center is returning to Pack Expo 2014! Last year, at the 2013 Pack Expo in Las Vegas, the CPA Sourcing Center overflowed with attendees every day during the expo.

This year, the Sourcing Center will be BIGGER and BETTER than ever! At the 2014 Pack Expo, taking place November 2-5 at McCormick Place in Chicago, CPA members as well as non-member contract packaging companies will be participating as CPA Sourcing Center Sponsors. These companies will highlight their products and/or services at Booth #5801 in high-profile tower displays showing-off examples of their core packaging business capabilities.

More than 45,000 packaging professionals are expected to attend Pack Expo this year, and most will be brand owners from consumer package goods and other sectors. The companies participating as CPA Sourcing Center Sponsors are sure to GET NOTICED!
