PACK EXPO bannerIf you're an attendee or exhibitor for Pack Expo (October 28-31; McCormick Place, Chicago), you might see me running from booth to booth (most likely with coffee in hand) conducting as many interviews as possible. Who knew you could get good stories and a workout all at the same time?

While this is my first time attending Pack Expo, along with seeing Chicago, I feel that my experiences at NPE 2012 have prepared me to take on any exhibition. (Note to self: bring tons of business cards. You can never have too many business cards.)


According to PMMI, owner and producer of the Pack Expo trade shows, Pack Expo 2012 is set to be the biggest show in 10 years. Back in July, PMMI announced that the show had sold out of exhibit space.

The show has a record 1800-plus exhibitors showing off the latest in packaging and processing innovation across more than 1.1 million net square feet of exhibit space. More than 46,000 attendees are expected at this year's show.
