The popular Reusable Packaging Pavilion is returning to PACK EXPO in Chicago with its largest number of exhibitors to date. Twenty-seven companies will exhibit in the sold out Reusable Packaging Pavilion located in the Lakeside Center of McCormick Place. The exhibitors include manufacturers, material suppliers, providers of washing and other specialty equipment, and poolers and service providers of reusable packaging systems and solutions. The Reusable Packaging Association also is offering a comprehensive educational series at PACK EXPO, presenting six sessions on topics ranging from implementing HACCP and GFSI to driving measurable environmental results with reusable packaging.

“The Pavilion and our conference sessions keep growing every year in response to the positive feedback we receive from attendees,” said Jerry Welcome, President, RPA. “Having all these resources in one place help attendees get complete information about reusables, whether they are just starting with implementation or they want to evolve their supply chains further to gain more efficiencies and cost savings. And in turn, it’s a great opportunity for our members and the RPA to showcase the value we bring to the packaging market.”

Also at PACK EXPO, the Association is presenting its first annual Excellence in Reusable Packaging Award. The award is designed to recognize companies that have developed, supported or implemented measurable and innovative reusable solutions in a business-to-business supply chain. The award is open to non-members as well as members of the RPA. The deadline for submissions is September 1.
