Networking and Special Events at PACK EXPO Las Vegas

There’s nothing like getting together with thousands of fellow professionals who “get” what you do for a living and speak the same industry language. With 30,000 packaging and processing professionals gathered in one place, you can look forward to amazing networking opportunities and special events at PACK EXPO Las Vegas.
