PMMI, owner and producer of Pack Expo International 2014 (McCormick Place, Chicago; Nov. 2–5) and the Contract Packaging Association (CPA) are bringing a new feature, the Contract Packaging Association Sourcing Center, to Pack Expo International and the co-located Pharma Expo this fall.

The new show feature, on the Grand Concourse adjacent to the Association Pavilion, will be a showcase for the capabilities of contract packagers, and a resource to Pharma Expo as well as Pack Expo attendees.

“In addition to the CPA members who will exhibit there, the Contract Packaging Association Sourcing Center will feature a display of innovative packages alongside experts who can speak to the benefits of using contract packagers,” says Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO, PMMI. “It will be a tremendous resource for both Pack Expo and Pharma Expo attendees.”

Contract packagers provide a wide range of packaging functions to consumer goods companies (CPGs). The Contract Packaging Sourcing Center will be near the entrance of the North Hall, and CPA members will be on hand to speak with brands about their needs.

“The opportunity to collaborate with PMMI is very exciting. Pack Expo consistently attracts top-level brands and buyers, and they are the target market for our messages about the role contract packagers can play,” says CPA president Chris Nutley, president, MSW Packaging. “This gives us a chance to present a full spectrum of contract packaging solutions and knowledge at the most comprehensive packaging and processing trade show in North America this year.”

Pharma Expo is co-produced by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, and the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE), and co-located with Pack Expo International 2014. PMMI anticipates the two events will draw a combined 50,000 attendees, with 2,000 exhibitors in 1.1 million net square feet of exhibit space.
