Largest-ever EXPO PACK Guadalajara Show Floor Opens to Attendees
The largest-ever EXPO PACK Guadalajara (June 13–15; Jalisco, Mexico) opened its doors this morning to an expected record number of attendees seeking new technologies and insights. Produced by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, the biannual event is hosting 700 exhibitors from 16 countries spanning 140,000 net-square-feet of exhibit space.
This third edition of EXPO PACK Guadalajara is three times larger than its 2013 beginnings as a regional show for the Western Mexico Market. The growth of the show is tracking with the development of the packaging machinery market in Mexico as evidenced by PMMI’s recent infographic, Mexico’s Packaging Machinery Market 2017 – 2018, at https://pmmi.docsend.com/view/zdfsv5v
The infographic serves as a visual snapshot of the issues facing packaging machinery manufacturers who do business in or are looking to break into the Mexican market and highlights factors indicating packaging machinery demand will continue to thrive.
PMMI members have a strong presence at the show with 160 members exhibiting, and a PMMI Pavilion featuring 82 PMMI member companies.
Show floor highlights include a food processing pavilion plus international pavilions from Argentina, Brazil, Canada, China, France, Italy, Spain and the United States, as well as a plethora of educational opportunities from free on-floor Innovation Stage presentations to a full conference program, Packaging Congress and the Envases Estelares Award from the Mexican Packaging Association (AMEE). Attendees can find sustainable packaging and processing solutions by looking-out for the EXPO PACK Verde icon at exhibits on the show floor.
The show floor is open for two more days, opening at 11 a.m. each day, and registration is available on-site until the end of the show.
