Registration is now open for PACK EXPO East 2017 (Monday, Feb. 27–March 1; Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia). The three-day event features 400 exhibiting companies and spans more than 100,000 net square feet, providing the opportunity for attendees to exchange ideas with 7,000 peers. According to PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the sophomore edition of PACK EXPO East will surpass the impressive results of 2015’s inaugural event.

“The industry identifies the PACK EXPO brand with quality events and the response to our first PACK EXPO East proved that,” said Jim Pittas, senior vice president, PMMI. “The intimacy of a regional event allowed attendees and exhibitors to spend quality time understanding each other’s operations and the challenges both sides of the table face.”

Attending PACK EXPO East is the most efficient way to engage suppliers of packaging technologies in the industry’s vibrant East Coast. The show brings large multinational exhibitors like Bosch Packaging and Siemens, as well as some of the fastest growing regional processing and packaging companies who target specific niche markets.

Its location in Philadelphia places PACK EXPO East within 200 miles of one-third of U.S. consumer packaged goods companies (CPGs), including arguably the country’s largest concentration of life science and pharmaceutical industries.

For those in the healthcare sector, the Healthcare Packaging and Processing Conference will be of particular interest with keynotes, sessions and technology workshops touching every facet of the industry. The robust conference program will focus on critical issues impacting the industry such as serialization, machinery automation, logistics security, government regulations, innovations in biotech and pharmaceutical packaging, sustainability and more.

In addition to the conference program, PACK EXPO East will feature an Innovation Stage program showcasing many of the latest packaging advances. These free 30-minute sessions on the show floor provide a quick and convenient way to learn about key topics.

Registration for PACK EXPO East is $30 for a limited time. Price will increase to an on-site fee of $100. Register online at
