Largest PACK EXPO Las Vegas rewrites the attendance record book
PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO 2017 welcomed more attendees than in 2015
Las Vegas, Nev. – Capping off an unprecedented year of record-breaking events in the PACK EXPO Portfolio of trade shows, PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO 2017 welcomed nearly 1,000 more attendees than 2015, making it the largest PACK EXPO Las Vegas in history.
Preliminary numbers reveal 29,500 attendees and 2,000 exhibiting companies convened over almost 900,000 net sq. ft. of the Las Vegas Convention Center.
Exhibitor Gary Bach, director of sales and marketing for Digital Design – A Matthews Company, has attended every PACK EXPO Las Vegas Show since the very first PACK EXPO West at the Sands Convention Center in 1995. As far as he is concerned, “PACK EXPO Las Vegas has been getting better and more attended every year.”
Show owner and producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, noted that numbers are up nearly four per cent in size from PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015 and the larger crowds continue to be high-level attendees with decision-making power.
Next up in the PACK EXPO portfolio is PACK EXPO East, April 16-18, 2018 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia. Information and registration for the upcoming show can be found at packexpoeast.com.
