There's no substitute for seeing processing and packaging machinery in action, and visitors to Pack Expo International this November will have plenty of opportunities to do that.
The event, which will be held in Chicago's McCormick Place convention hall, takes place Nov. 6 to 9. More than 2,300 exhibitors are expected to be on hand to showcase the industry's latest processing and packaging advances. The show is produced by PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.
In addition to the exhibition, Pack Expo will offer free educational sessions. Attendees can choose from an array of presentations taking place at four Innovation Stages located on the show floor. These learning hubs will offer 30-minute seminars on breakthrough ideas and technologies conducted by exhibitors and industry thought leaders.
Among the highlights of this year's event are the Amazing Packaging Race, in which teams of students compete to solve engineering problems at the booths of participating exhibitors, and the annual charity and networking event. This year's benefit event, which takes place Monday, Nov. 7, features a performance by the award-winning illusionists Penn & Teller.
