Now in its fourth edition, the three-day event will feature 400 exhibiting companies and span 100,000 net square feet, providing the opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas with 7,000 peers. The location in Philadelphia presents a unique opportunity for the CPG-rich mid-Atlantic, allowing much of the east coast the chance to drive or train in and see latest in cutting edge-technology and insights.
PACK EXPO East also provides a convenient and affordable option for companies to send entire teams who are working on projects. With its smaller scale, attendees are afforded more quality time problem solving with individual suppliers. Attending as a team is particularly fitting for PACK EXPO East as not only is the Northeastern U.S. home to nearly one-third of the nation’s top CPGs, but manufacturing companies represent one of the top five employer groups in the region, according to Statistical Atlas.
Like all events in the PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows, PACK EXPO East will also offer world class educational offerings, free of charge, on the show floor. In the center of the action, the Innovation Stage will present ample opportunity for professional enrichment during 30-minute seminars throughout each day. The Innovation Stage is a valuable opportunity for attendees to learn about breakthrough technologies, innovative applications and proven approaches from the experts themselves.
The Forum takes a collaborative approach to learning and will feature 45-minute open sessions on the latest industry trends by industry thought leaders like the OpX Leadership Network, Institute of Packaging Professionals, Contract Packagers Association, and PMMI Business Intelligence. Each session includes small group discussions and Q&A sessions.
Other programs and activities on the docket will include the Packaging & Processing Women’s Leadership Network (PPWLN) regional meeting, student opportunities, a Robotics Zone, workforce development including training and
CareerLink@ PACK EXPO, and more.
Registration is $30 through February 7, after which the price increases to $100. For more information and to register online, visit www.packexpoeast.com.
