Canon recently acquired the WestPack, EastPack, and SouthPack trade shows from Reed Exhibition Companies. Already, Canon has announced significant changes designed to enhance the shows. Starting in 2002, the EastPack show will move to New York City to co-locate with the Medical Design & Manufacturing East, Atlantic Design & Manufacturing, and PLASTEC East shows. In addition, the packaging shows will add two new feature product pavilions for Cosmetic & Personal Care Packaging and Pharmaceutical/Nutraceutical Packaging.
