PMMI’s Business Intelligence will release its 2017 Global Packaging Trends report at interpack in Düsseldorf, Germany, May 4–10, 2017.

More than 165 members of PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, will represent the North American market, while showcasing global processing and packaging machinery solutions at the event. A triennial international trade fair for packaging and related processing industries, interpack serves the food, beverage, confectionery, bakery, pharmaceutical, cosmetics, non-food and industrial goods sectors.

“PMMI offers invaluable resources to manufacturers wanting to do business in North America,” said Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO, PMMI. “Our three business units work together to connect suppliers with customers year-round and drive the innovation needed to move the industry forward. We do this through our PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows, PMMI Media Group and business drivers that provide the industry tools to succeed in a global marketplace.”

At interpack, PMMI’s Business Intelligence will release its 2017 Global Packaging Trends report. This report explores key trends driving packaging innovations such as increasing awareness of health and wellness and growing concerns about environmental impact while identifying hot spots for packaging growth in all regions of the world.

The PMMI booth will also offer a thorough primer on its Pack Expo portfolio of trade shows. As leading processing and packaging shows in North America, each is designed to connect consumer goods companies with manufacturing solutions.

“The next installment of the PMMI portfolio of trade shows, Pack Expo Las Vegas, takes place at the end of September and is an unparalleled resource for those aiming to break into the North American market while connecting with even more PMMI companies,” said Jim Pittas, senior vice president, PMMI.

In addition, representatives from PMMI’s Media Group will be on-hand to showcase its leading publications, events and online media connecting the global supply chain.
