PMMI, owner and producer of the PACK EXPO trade shows, announces that PACK EXPO International 2012 (October 28-31; McCormick Place, Chicago), has sold out of exhibit space.

“The sold out status of PACK EXPO speaks volumes to its value as a showcase for the packaging and processing industries,” said Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI. “With space completely gone three months out, the show has surpassed even our expectations.”

PACK EXPO International 2012 will be the largest edition of the show since 2002, with a record 1,800-plus exhibitors showing off the latest in packaging and processing innovation across more than 1.1 million net square feet of exhibit space.

With all of the packaging and processing technology on display, the customer-centric focus of the show will ensure attendees can make the most of their time on the show floor.

“With new and returning industry pavilions and lounges, partnerships with innovators like Material ConneXion and Mintel, and industry expertise across the show floor and in the conference halls, PACK EXPO International 2012 will be an event that highlights all the best these industries have to offer,” Yuska added.

In addition to lounges dedicated to the beverage, baking and snack, confectionery and pharmaceutical industries, the show will feature expertise from the National Confectioners Association (NCA), the Association of Independent Corrugated Converters (AICC), the International Society of Beverage Technologists (ISBT), and several chapters of the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE).

PACK EXPO 2012 will also see the return of the PACK EXPO Lecture Series, with comedian and pundit Dennis Miller and commentator James Carville taking the stage on Sunday, Oct. 28.

“The discussion between Carville and Miller promises to be not only engaging and entertaining, but particularly relevant in this election year,” Yuska said. “We’re looking forward to a great event.”

Tickets for the PACK EXPO Lecture Series with Dennis Miller and James Carville are available online at http://www.packexpo.com and cost $125 per person ($100 per person for groups of 10).
