Pack Expo and Process Expo together one last time
It will be the end of a brief era when Pack Expo Las Vegas and Process Expo stage their last trade show together in Las Vegas Oct. 5-7.

Some 21,000 packaging and food processing professionals are expected in the Las Vegas Convention Center for the show, which also includes the Converting &Package Printing Expo, as it has for the past three years. Together, the three shows will feature 1,500-plus exhibitors taking up 650,000 sq. ft.

Process Expo, sponsored by the Food Processing Suppliers Assn., has been paired with Pack Expo since 1997.

Process Expo will link up with the Institute of Food Technologists’ Food Expo starting next year: July 18-20 in Chicago’s McCormick Place. Pack Expo officials say they are cultivating processing suppliers to maintain that element of their next show, which will be in Chicago Oct. 31-Nov. 3, 2010.
