Tips for First-Time Attendees


Book a room in the PACK EXPO East hotel block, and book early.

When you book through the PACK EXPO East Hotel Reservation Office (Expovision), you get the lowest rates for participating hotels near the show. Plus, staying at a hotel where other attendees are staying gives you more opportunities to network.


Plan out your time in advance.

Use My Show Planner (a free online tool for registered attendees) to search for products you are interested in seeing, build a list of exhibitors to visit, browse the schedule of educational sessions and add these to your plan. This will give you an idea of how many days you need to spend at the show to accomplish your goals.


Don’t miss the Welcome Reception and other networking events.

PACK EXPO East is a great opportunity to grow your network, and fellow attendees can be a surprisingly rich source of information. It’s also nice to talk to people who understand what you do for a living and can share stories!


Use the mobile app to map out your show experience.

The app includes all features of My Show Planner, an interactive floor plan, schedules, convention center information and more.


Pick up your badge on-site, bring a water bottle and comfortable walking shoes.

If you register by March 1, you will secure the early bird registration rate. Be sure to wear shoes that will let you be on your feet all day, walking from your hotel and around the show floor.


Plan to enter the Pennsylvania Convention Center from Arch Street.

The entrance on Arch Street between 12th and 13th Streets is the most convenient entrance to Exhibit Halls A and B, where the show is taking place. Keep this in mind when planning your walking route or deciding where to park.
