Another new pavilion is among the highlights some 25,000 visitors can look forward to when they attend Pack Expo Las Vegas this year. Running October 15 through 17 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, the show will feature more than 1,200 exhibitors occupying 550,000 net sq feet of floor space, says show organizer and producer the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (

As for that new pavilion, it’s called “Design for Profit.” Co-presented by PMMI and Xpedx, it will focus on the methods used to propel package design from idea through implementation. The idea is to demonstrate how successful packaging designs incorporate a variety of materials and support a cross-section of industry sectors and consumer needs. Look for it within the Containers and Materials Pavilion.

Other pavilions returning once again include RFID, Contract Packaging, and the Brand Protection Center. The Showcase of Packaging Innovations, sponsored by The Dow Chemical Co., also returns, where hundreds of real-world products from around the globe will be on display.

“We’re pleased to work with The Dow Chemical Company once again to showcase the exciting packaging that is helping consumers in their every day lives,” says Chuck Yuska, president and CEO of PMMI. “The Showcase of Packaging Innovations offers Pack Expo Las Vegas attendees a chance to be inspired by award-winning packaging that represents a full range of market segments and regions.”

Of course, for many show-goers, The Conference at Pack Expo is a main draw, and this year’s lineup of speakers is again impressive. Running Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday, the program is divided into five concurrent sessions. Attend as many as you wish. (See pages 76-78 for complete listings.)

With a show this big you may need help in getting organized. Product Locator Kiosks on the show floor can help. Or My Pack Expo could be just the ticket. This personal, password-protected Web page, which can be accessed 24/7, is a powerful software tool that intelligently mines the show’s database of contacts, products, services, and conference sessions to generate a custom report tailored to individual requirements.

Carve out some time, too, for the shows that are co-located with Pack Expo Las Vegas: Process Expo, sponsored by the Food Processing Suppliers Association; Converting and Packaging Printing Expo; and the International Bottled Water Association’s 2007 Convention and Tabletop Trade Show.
