PACK EXPO East includes programming from various industry leaders. 

Reston, Va.; Dec. 14, 2016 — The Healthcare Packaging and Processing Conference at PACK EXPO East (Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia; Feb. 27–March 1, 2017) is now open for registration, announces show producer and owner PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.

With regulation deadlines looming and supply chain challenges persisting, this two-day conference for life science processing and packaging professionals comes right on time, Feb. 27 and 28, to the Philadelphia area — a hub for life science industries.

“Due to its ever-changing regulations and diverse technologies, pharma is one vertical market where attendees are always clamoring for as much new information as possible,” says Jim Pittas, senior vice president, PMMI. “Pharma also supplies early iterations of innovation that we later see in food, beverage, branding, etc., so fostering this kind of environment for cross-pollinating ideas delivers huge value to every PACK EXPO East attendee.”
