Gearing Up for Fall with PACK EXPO
July 31, 2013
As summer begins to wind down, we start looking ahead toward fall. An annual season staple for those of us working in packaging-related fields is the PACK EXPO.
The show is an opportunity for packaging companies, packaging equipment manufacturers, and other businesses to come together to showcase their wares. In addition, potential clients from just about every industry have a chance to review suppliers and find the perfect solutions for their needs.
When most people think of a packaging exhibition, theyre typically thinking of flexible packaging manufactures, or corrugated box makers. In reality, all of the industries that rely on these packaging and shipping materials are represented as well. PACK EXPO serves companies working in the automotive sector, food packaging, household goods, electronics, and more. Each of these companies requires protective solutions for their products, and these solutions are all found at the show.
In addition, businesses should also consider waste management solutions. All of that packaging material has to go somewhere at the end of its lifecycle, and industrial conveying systems and shredders can eliminate that extra bulk. And for packaging manufacturers, trim cutters can streamline operations by removing edge trim and moving it to a collection area for disposal. Its estimated that about 30% of manufacturers need a trim cutter.
To get in touch with packaging and equipment manufacturers, or industrial sales leads, be sure to check out PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2013. The event is taking place September 23 25, 2013 and will bring together thousands of attendees representing more than 100 countries. For more information, visit PACKEXPO.com.
