PMMI: Pack Expo International 2012 Breaks Records

Packaging and processing professionals gathered in Chicago last week for Pack Expo International 2012, one of the largest packaging and processing trade show in the world this year.

The four-day event, Oct. 28–31, covered more than 1.1 million net square feet (nsf) in McCormick Place with 1,965 exhibiting companies — an increase of over 6% for space and 7% for exhibiting companies from Pack Expo International 2010.

Pre-registration for the fair was up significantly (nearly 10%) going into the event, however, the East Coast storm did have some effect on the final attendance numbers. Still, in spite of the storm, Pack Expo welcomed 45,300 attendees to McCormick Place for the four-day event, which is an increase of 3% over the 2010 show. Much of this increase can be credited to the significant growth in the number of international attendees, which was up just over 53% from 2010.

The momentum from the Chicago show continues with exhibitors already planning their presence at Pack Expo Las Vegas, Sept. 23–25, 2013. Approximately 47,000 square feet of booth space sold during the show in Chicago last week, bringing the current Pack Expo Las Vegas net square footage to nearly 560,000 nsf, over 20% ahead of pace from 2011.
