Where else are you going to get up close and personal with the hottest technologies in packaging? At PACK EXPO International, you’ll see how packaging solutions work in over 40 different vertical industries, as well as build relationships with the thinkers and innovators who can translate retail channels, create consumer “wow” moments, and help your brand dominate the category. To help prepare you for the largest packaging event of the year, we’ve compiled a list of the top five reasons why this year’s PACK EXPO is not to be missed.
1. The Best Opportunity for Brand Owners and Packaging Partners to Connect
86% of the key movers and shakers in the packaging industry will be in attendance at the PACK EXPO 2016 in Chicago this November. This is where brand owners can discover the latest technologies and industry innovations, engage with thousands of industry experts, and find targeted network opportunities. What does that mean for your business? With a little advance planning, you could make acquaintances with potential suppliers, employers, or partners who would otherwise take months just to get on the phone.
2. Best Practices Abound
What trends are having the greatest impact on your industry or, more importantly, your customers? As you take in over 2,300 exhibits, those trends begin to take shape. At PACK EXPO, you’ll be able to see technologies in action and see how these applications can solve problems like time to market, pressure on pricing and supply chain complexities. For those seeking a “eureka moment”, you’ll find many here.
3. Two for the Price of One
