3 Reasons to Be Excited for PACK EXPO 2021

Natalya Calleja

PACK EXPO provides opportunities to see new technology in-person, ask questions, brainstorm ideas, and come together as industry professionals. Here's why we're looking forward to participating in this year’s show.

After the cancelation of last year’s show due to COVID-19, we are counting down the days until our industry re-engages at the Las Vegas Convention Center for PACK EXPO 2021. As the world’s most comprehensive packaging and processing event this year, there will be much to see, learn, and experience. With multiple dedicated pavilions, over 1500 exhibitors, roundtables on industry issues, over 80 quick education sessions, and new special exhibits featuring technology innovations, there is something for everyone at PACK EXPO. 

Why should you be excited to attend PACK EXPO?

1) Experience new technologies.

There’s no question about it — the past year has solidified the role technology will play in our lives and businesses for time to come. So, it’s important to be up-to-date on recent innovations. 

As new technologies have been developed to improve efficiency, processing, and more, PACK EXPO is the best way to catch up on industry breakthroughs and explore solutions that will better your business. At the show, you’ll discover technology you didn’t even realize existed. Plus, you’ll get to see how it works, ask questions, take pictures, and learn about the new possibilities these tools can offer to your business and supply chain. 

2) Network and prepare for the future.

It’s critical to prepare for the future and position your company to adapt to changing market conditions. PACK EXPO provides opportunities to make valuable connections with other industry leaders and learn from their strategies. It’s also the perfect time to explore new innovations that will push your company forward and prove valuable as new challenges arise in your supply chain, shipping methods, or operations. Whether you’re looking for your next capital investment or simply looking to gain perspective on how others handle the ever-changing market, there is no better way to connect than a live event! Face-to-face meetings with suppliers and engineers, as well as learning from industry leaders during educational sessions, makes PACK EXPO a worthwhile resource for future endeavors.

3) Learn from industry experts. 

In just three days, you can do a year’s worth of research. With hundreds of exhibitors, over 90 free educational sessions, and industry experts all in one place, you can get the answers you need to improve production, enhance your brand, expand e-commerce, achieve sustainability, and more! The education venues on the show floor make it easy to stay updated on industry trends and learn between meetings with exhibitors. And if you miss a session, your PACK EXPO registration allows you to access the presentations on-demand after the show!
