The PACK EXPO East 2022 show floor will be the biggest in its history, according to show producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.

Booth space sales have surpassed previous PACK EXPO East events, and attendee registration is also keeping pace with the 2020 show.

The event takes place March 21 to 23 at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia.

Featuring more than 400 exhibitors, the biennial, three-day regional event provides professionals from the consumer packaged goods (CPG) and life sciences industries an opportunity to explore the latest packaging and processing technologies in person, connect with suppliers and find solutions in a rapidly changing marketplace.

“PACK EXPO East attendees get the best of both worlds—the ability to see a comprehensive range of packaging and processing technologies while still having time for in-depth discussions with suppliers to solve pain points and address challenges,”​ said Jim Pittas, president and CEO, PMMI.

“This easily accessible regional event is the perfect opportunity for a day trip with your team to experience all these solutions first-hand.”

Highlights this year include interactive presentations, with 45-minute sessions on the latest industry trends, presented by the OpX Leadership Network, Institute of Packaging Professionals, Contract Packaging Association and PMMI Business Intelligence, followed by small group discussions and Q&A sessions. Also on the show floor, the Innovation Stage offers 30-minute seminars throughout the day presenting breakthrough technologies, innovative applications and proven approaches from industry experts.

PACK EXPO East also offers programs and activities to get students excited about careers in packaging and processing. Attendees will see high school robotics teams from the Philadelphia area showcase their design, engineering and troubleshooting skills at the Future Innovators Robotics Showcase.

In addition to the show floor features, there will be networking opportunities. All attendees and exhibitors can gather and network during the Taste of Philly PACK EXPO East Opening Reception. Following the opening reception, young professionals in packaging and processing will connect during PMMI’s Young Professionals Networking Reception at SPIN Philadelphia, and The Packaging & Processing Women’s Leadership Network (PPWLN) Reception will bring women in the industry together in a meet-and-greet setting.

Attendees can plan their visit before the show by utilizing the My Show Planner feature to identify and map out exhibitors to visit, search education sessions and more.
