Attendees of PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO (Sept. 27-29, 2021; Las Vegas Convention Center) will take advantage of brand new, complimentary tools offered by show producer, PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, to plan their visit and connect with the packaging and processing suppliers that fit their individual needs.

Introducing PACK Match: This complimentary consultation provides attendees personalized, one-on-one guidance to locate solutions. Whether an emerging brand or a well-established household name, PACK Match Advisors are available for 30-minute virtual consultations to connect attendees with the right suppliers. To use the service, attendees complete an online form to indicate their challenges and ensure they are matched with the appropriate industry expert. Once the match is made, attendees schedule a virtual meeting with their assigned PACK Match Advisor to receive non-biased guidance and recommended exhibitors to suit their business needs. Meetings will begin approximately 3 weeks prior to the show. Meetings are assigned on a first come-first serve basis and spots are limited. Learn more at: packexpolasvegas.com/attending/pack-match
