ARLINGTON, VA. — The PACK EXPO trade shows will expand to include a focus on processing solutions.
The board of directors of PMMI, the owner and producer of the shows, voted unanimously on the decision to expand the focus. The first show with the new approach will be PACK EXPO International 2010, which will be held Oct. 31 – Nov. 3, 2010 at McCormick Place in Chicago.
"Today’s consumer and industrial goods companies are combining the engineering teams within their companies in order to support total systems solutions for their enterprises," said Charles D. Yuska, president and chief executive officer of PMMI. "Their focus is clearly on overall operational excellence across the production line. It is abundantly clear that PACK EXPO needs to mirror the industry it serves by broadening its exhibitor focus to include processing solutions."
