Reston, Va.; Jan. 12, 2015 — PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the owner and producer of the PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows, is pleased to announce Lenze Americas (Booth 1014) will sponsor the Exhibitor and PMMI Member Lounges at the first PACK EXPO East (Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia; Feb. 16–18, 2015).

The lounges provide exhibitors amenities such as meeting space and coffee service away from the bustle of the show floor.

“We appreciate the Lenze Americas sponsorship. PACK EXPO show floors are always busy, and exhibitors and PMMI members tell us they value the lounges, where they can step away to conduct a meeting away from the floor or to simply recharge,” says Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI.

Lenze Americas has sponsored PMMI Member and Exhibitor Lounges at other PACK EXPO shows, most recently PACK EXPO International and Pharma EXPO 2014.

“We feel that we’re offering a welcomed service to our fellow members and exhibitors,” says Susan Duval, marketing manager, Lenze Americas. “And we’re happy to do that, especially at the premiere of PACK EXPO East.”

Yuska notes PACK EXPO East is the only event in the North East for processing and packaging technologies across industries, and its Philadelphia location puts it within 200 miles of a third of U.S. consumer packaged goods manufacturers.

“PACK EXPO East is bringing the opportunities the PACK EXPO trade shows deliver so well — technological innovations, cross pollination of ideas, educational resources and networking opportunities — to the region’s vibrant manufacturing community,” Yuska adds.

PMMI’s Member Lounge (Room 120BC) and the Exhibitor Lounge (Room 125) will be open 9:00 a.m.–4:00 p.m. Monday, Feb. 16–Wednesday, Feb. 18. Complimentary coffee service will be available for exhibitors in both locations from 9:00–11:00 each morning.
