New guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for people who are vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus is helping to reassure Americans that we are ready to get back to doing things we did before the pandemic. Like business travel and in-person group events.

In about three months, packaging professionals can reconnect with colleagues and supplier partners at WestPack 2021 and Cannabis Packaging Summit. Both events are happening at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, CA, August 10-12. They are produced by Informa Markets, owner of Packaging Digest.

Safety will be paramount. Informa Markets Engineering’s West event will be run according to official government and local authority guidance in the first instance, as well as any venue or location-specific regulations. In addition, all Informa events around the world, irrespective of format or location, will follow onsite safety measures called Informa AllSecure. These guidelines will help to ensure all parties involved at the event — attendees and exhibitors — feel confident and safe to meet in person.


Get in on the “action!”

“During this time physically apart, we’ve reimagined our live event, and created an immersive expo that will feature expertly curated education, networking hubs, product showcases, and more,” says Hayley Haggarty, group event director of Informa Market Engineering’s West event. “Attendees of all show brands can look forward to both new and well-established theaters and activations across the floor.”

Among the action will be:

New! 3DPX Zone: Constant innovation and research in 3D printing materials is expected to boost the market growth as manufacturers switch towards 3D printing material for its superior strength, robust nature, and high temperature resistance. According to a recent study by Fact MR, the global 3D printing material market is forecast to expand at 26% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) over the duration of 2021 to 2031. To support this growth, the Informa Markets Engineering’s West event will launch an all-new 3D Printing eXperiential zone featuring live demos, free content, and networking within a dedicated 3D printing hub.

New! Lobby Product Showcase: A new go-to destination will be to see the latest innovation within the industry at the Lobby Product Showcase.

New! News Desk: Have some spare time? Drop by the all-new News Desk for the opportunity to listen in on some of the brightest minds being interviewed by journalists onsite.


Center Stage: A staple of the Informa Markets Engineering’s West event, attendees can stop by the lobby theater for panel discussions, live demos, thought leadership presentations, and more.

Tech Theater: Technical sessions will also be accessible on the show floor, hosted and presented by suppliers.

Networking Events: Informa Markets Engineering’s West event is where the manufacturing community across industries come to connect. Take part in formal and informal networking events across the expo floor.
