Due to the ongoing global pandemic, PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, has canceled the in-person EXPO PACK México 2021 in Mexico City. An online platform, Enlace EXPO PACK (June 8-9), will provide a robust education program, brought to you by Mundo PMMI, and alternative access to leading industry suppliers. PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO 2021 remains unchanged and in-person, Sept. 27-29, 2021, at the Las Vegas Convention Center and EXPO PACK Mexico will return to Mexico City in June of 2022.
“As we continue to contribute to the exhaustive work that society, health authorities and governments are doing to reduce the possibility of contagion, we are confident that we will be able to return to face-to-face events in Mexico City in 2022,” says Jim Pittas, PMMI president and CEO. “Until then, Enlace EXPO PACK provides an easy Spanish language platform for the industry to come together, and reinforces our commitment to keeping the Latin American market engaged.”
The most comprehensive online event for the packaging and processing industry in Latin America, Enlace EXPO PACK will feature a wide-ranging educational program produced in conjunction with Mundo PMMI, product presentations on demand and a robust catalog of suppliers providing packaging and processing professionals easy access to the solutions they need. Exhibitor showrooms will allow attendees to explore what’s new and connect with exhibitors to learn more about each product.
“While in-person events are always the preferred way to see technology and discuss projects, the past year has taught us it is essential to continue to offer ways for the packaging and processing industry to connect and learn about the latest trends in the industry,” says Laura Thompson, PMMI vice president, trade shows. “We are going to expand on our successful webinar series to provide quality education combined with a platform to facilitate supplier/customer connections at Enlace EXPO PACK.”
The event will kick-off each morning with Mundo de Expertos, featuring industry thought leaders discussing the latest topics impacting the industry. Exhibitor-led Innovation Stage sessions will immediately follow, showcasing technology breakthroughs and real-world solutions, complete with live chat Q&A.
