The 20th anniversary of PACK EXPO Las Vegas was more than a milestone. It was a record-breaker.

Show owner and producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, reports preliminary data for PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015 and the co-located Pharma EXPO (Las Vegas Convention Center, Sept. 28–30) shows a 4 percent increase in attendance over the record PACK EXPO Las Vegas set in 2013. This week’s event, which welcomed nearly 29,000 attendees, included the Las Vegas debut of Pharma EXPO, a joint venture between PMMI and the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE).

Registrants came to see 2,006 exhibiting companies in 844,510 net square feet of exhibit space, both records for PACK EXPO Las Vegas, and experienced a processing and packaging event like no other. With more than 40 vertical markets represented, PACK EXPO and Pharma EXPO advance innovations and the cross pollination of ideas.

“Technologies and applications often apply across a range of industries, and the sheer scale of our show fosters manufacturers’ ability to make the connections that lead to true innovation. That phenomenon really sets the PACK EXPO shows apart,” says Jim Pittas, vice president, PMMI. “The power of PACK EXPO brands continues to show consistent growth and provide solid returns for the attendees and exhibitors who support the show.”
