Pack Expo Will Return To Chicago’s McCormick Place Oct. 23


Pack Expo International will return Oct. 23 at McCormick Place in Chicago. Organizers says this year’s expo will offer attendees new features and the opportunity to experience more innovations in four days than in a year’s worth of research.

“It is vital for the packaging and processing industries to come together and share innovations, connect with colleagues, hear from experts, and see machinery in action. PACK EXPO International 2022 is the most efficient and effective way to do it all,” said Jim Pittas, president and CEO, PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. “No other event this year will showcase entire production line solutions and offer attendees everything needed to compete in a changing marketplace.”

Attendees will interact with more than 2,000 exhibitors displaying the latest technology for 40 vertical markets in 1.2 million net square feet of exhibit space, as well as more than 100 free educational sessions on the show floor.

The Emerging Brands Summit will debut at Pack Expo International and will feature educational content, tabletop exhibits and expert advisors. This program is aimed at founders and leaders of startup manufacturing companies looking to scale their brand to larger production through either in-house facility build out or outsourced relationships with contract manufacturers and packagers.
