Live, in-person technology in action for the first time in 18 months is just one of the many features of the only comprehensive packaging and processing trade show in the world this year: Pack Expo Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging Expo (27 to 29 September). Show producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, will reunite the packaging and processing community with over 1,500 exhibitors, targeted education and countless networking opportunities spread across four expansive halls at the Las Vegas Convention Center. “Registration is already exceeding expectations, and we anticipate well over 20,000 packaging and processing professionals in attendance this September,” says Jim Pittas, President and CEO, PMMI.
In today’s manufacturing environment, processing and packaging often come together as an integrated system, making it more critical than ever to bring both packaging and processing solutions under one roof. To meet this growing need, The Processing Zone returns with front-of-the-line solutions such as homogenizing, heat treating, forming/sizing and coating to help increase efficiency, achieve total system integration and ensure food safety. New in 2021 is the Processing Innovation stage, focusing on the latest processing breakthroughs.
