Pack Expo Las Vegas Preview: Expecting Innovation

Touting the theme ‘Expect Innovation’, Pack Expo Las Vegas is set to take place 11-13 September at the Las Vegas Convention Center. This year’s Las Vegas edition will be the largest since its inception with more than 30,000 attendees expected and more than 2,000 exhibitors spanning more than one million square feet of exhibit space.

Produced by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, Pack Expo  Las Vegas 2023 is a premier destination to witness cutting-edge packaging and processing solutions, with suppliers showcasing diverse innovations for more than 40 vertical markets, making it the most all-inclusive packaging and processing show in North America this year.

The theme of Pack Expo Las Vegas 2023 (PELV) is ‘Expect Innovation’ as PMMI notes that this show “will provide more solutions and innovations under one roof than available anywhere else in North America this year. Show attendees will see machinery in action, discover the latest materials, hear from experts, experience innovations firsthand, gain insights into critical industry trends, and discover solutions they didn’t know existed.”

Sustainability will be a major theme at PELV. A new Sustainability Central area will serve as an interactive resource to learn about design, materials, manufacturing, recovery, logistics, and data. At the accompanying Sustainability Stage, attendees will hear from experts on a range of packaging sustainability topics and learn how to make brands more sustainable. In addition, the Pack Expo Green Program returns to PELV and is the commitment of Pack Expo and its partners, vendors, and exhibitors to work together to create a more sustainable world. Pack Expo Green identifies exhibiting companies that provide sustainable solutions via new materials, technology, or strategies such as sustainable processes and machines, renewable and biodegradable packaging, source reduction and lightweighting, recyclable and recycled-content materials, or innovations that reduce carbon footprint.

Below is a sampling of some of T&CTJ’s advertisers that will be exhibiting at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2023.
