WestPack is the place to be this June to find the packaging machinery, materials, and services that packaging professionals need for upcoming projects. From high-performance materials to quick-change machines to controls and integration tools to E-business solutions—it will all be on display June 19 to 21 at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA.

According to the show’s sponsors, Reed Exhibition Companies (Norwalk, CT), more than 650 exhibitors will show products in more than 400 different categories: packaging machinery, converting machinery, containers, closures, materials handling, and much more.
