Exhibit sales open for Pack Expo Las Vegas 2015 and Pharma EXPO’s Las Vegas debut
Pack Expo owner and producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, and the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE) have announced their joint venture, Pharma Expo, will make its Las Vegas debut in Fall 2015, co-located with Pack Expo Las Vegas (Sept. 28–30, 2015; Las Vegas Convention Center).
2015 will be the second edition of Pharma Expo. The first is co-located with this fall’s Pack Expo International (Nov. 2–5; McCormick Place, Chicago). Reaction to the new show has been very positive to date, said Jim Pittas, vice president, Trade Shows, PMMI.
“We’ve already exceeded our projections for Pharma Expo 2014 by more than 6,000 net square feet of exhibit space,” Pittas said. “We’re confident that we’ll have at least the same level of response in Las Vegas next year.”
PMMI anticipates Pack Expo Las Vegas 2015 and Pharma Expo will attract more than 30,000 attendees, representing more than 40 vertical markets — including 5,000 international buyers from more than 130 countries — and in excess of 1,800 exhibiting companies in over 800,000 net square feet of exhibit space.
“Pharma EXPO connects pharmaceutical, biopharmaceutical and nutraceutical and medical device manufacturers with suppliers, all in one central location,” says Nancy Berg, president and CEO, ISPE. “We’re very pleased with the results we’re seeing in Chicago this fall, and we expect similar success for 2015.”
