Park Expo Las Vegas, sponsored by the Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, (PMMI) came to Las Vegas last week and occupied the North, Central and South Halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center. The trade show welcomed some 2300 exhibitors and 32,000 attendees making it the largest packaging and processing technologies trade show in the world.

Lots of verbs are used in describing the the kinds of equipment featured at the convention center. The exhibits included equipment for filling, capping, closing, bagging, pouching, wrapping, conveying, feeding, handling, coding, labeling, printing, inspecting, testing, cartoning, case packing, material handling, warehousing, and much more.

Pack Expo Las Vegas also featured many educational sessions with subjects such as “Injecting Innovation into Sustainable Packaging,” “Improving Efficiency in Programming Industrial Automation,” and “The Packaging Policy Precipice — Challenges or Opportunities.”

However, walking part of the trade show was the most exciting. I attended Pack Expo in 2019 and this year got a whole different look, as I traveled with a video camera in hand. Hope you’ll enjoy the video.

  1. Ms. Taylor,
    Were there any educational seminars that tackled the on-going discussion of safety and ease-of-opening of retail products vs ALL of what customers can go through in trying to open a product?

  2. To Judy B: I’d rather have difficult-to-open tamper-proof packaging than poison-laced Tylenol. Aren’t you old enough to remember THAT? I am. Packaging is relevant to everything. Too many mischievous, if not downright evil people in the world, opening packages and damaging products for whatever reason! Di, was surprised to find out there’s only one rubber band manufacturer in all of the U.S. Great coverage for an industry we don’t normally pay any attention.
