APPMA to exhibit at PACK EXPO International 2014

Thursday, 16 October, 2014

More than 30 leading packaging and processing associations from around the world have been confirmed as exhibitors at PACK EXPO International 2014 in Chicago. Representing Australia is the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA), which is exhibiting at the show for the second year.

PMMI, the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, invited the organisations to exhibit as part of the PACK EXPO Partner Program (PEPP), which aims to reinforce industry connections.

“The PACK EXPO trade shows are about bringing the industry together - the entire packaging and processing supply chain - to spur innovation. With 50,000 attendees expected at PACK EXPO International and Pharma EXPO, PACK EXPO Partners will enjoy the opportunity to network with packaging and processing professionals and other like-minded associations,” said Jim Pittas, PMMI’s vice president, Trade Shows.

According to APPMA Chairman Mark Dingley, attending PACK EXPO helps the APPMA achieve its goals.

“APPMA exhibited at PACK EXPO Las Vegas in 2013, and it enabled our association to raise its profile on an international scale and to assist companies who are looking to establish themselves in the Australian market by connecting them to our members. The program also enables APPMA to continue our relationship with PMMI as one of our international sister associations,” said Dingley.

“PEPP is a clear example of how the packaging and processing communities come together at the PACK EXPO shows,” said Pittas. “PMMI knows how important our association partnerships are to furthering our industries and our missions. The partnership program opens the door to building and strengthening those partnerships.”

APPMA will be at Stand N-4535 in the Partner Pavilion at PACK EXPO 2014 in Chicago.
