PMMI, the owner and producer of the Pack Expo trade shows, today announced a brand-new regional event: Pack Expo East, coming to Philadelphia Feb. 2–4, 2015. PMMI will stage the event at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

“There’s a real need in the market for first-class events that are a bit closer to home,” says Rick Fox Jr., president, Fox IV Technologies, who chairs PMMI’s Board of Directors. “About 18 months ago, PMMI commissioned Westat, a leading research firm, to reach out to customers about the need for a regional event, and if they would support one. The results were extremely positive.”

PMMI expects to draw attendees from a range of critical market segments including food, beverage, personal care, electronics and pharmaceutical and medical devices.

“Philadelphia is within easy driving distance of 40% of the U.S. population, and that area includes large consumer goods companies, industrial manufacturers and a huge life sciences community,” he adds. “Pack Expo East is positioned well to help brand owners find the solutions they need, a bit closer to home.”

Space sales forPack Expo East 2015 (Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia; Feb. 2–4, 2015) will open during Pack Expo Las Vegas this fall (Sept. 23–25; Las Vegas Convention Center).
