Following a successful debut in 2010, and with support from the National Confectioners Association, the Confectionery Pavilion expands to more than 15,000-sq.-ft. for this year’s upcoming Pack Expo Las Vegas show.After selling out the inaugural Confectionery Pavilion at Pack Expo International 2010, show producer PMMI and the National Confectioners Association (NCA), are working together again to bring the Confectionery Pavilion to Pack Expo Las Vegas 2011, on Sept. 26-28 in Las Vegas, NV.

 

Totaling more than 15,000 sq ft, the Confectionery Pavilion will once again host a range of packaging and processing solutions focused on the confectionery industry. The Pavilion will be located in the Upper South Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center.

 

"Pack Expo Pavilions are designed to help attendees quickly and easily find the suppliers that serve their industries, and the Confectionery Pavilion was one of our most successful endeavors at Pack Expo International 2010," says Charles Yuska, president and CEO, PMMI. "This pavilion, and the support of NCA, were key factors in helping us deliver a successful show in 2010."

 

For more than 120 years, the NCA has represented the world's best known candy, chocolate and gum companies, and its members include the world's leading candy and confection brands including: Goetze's Candy Co., Jelly Belly Candy Co., Ghirardelli Chocolate Co., MARS Chocolate North America, Kraft Foods, Russell Stover Candies Inc., The Hershey Co. and Tootsie Roll Industries Inc.

 

"Between packaging, which is our members' interface with the consumer, and the processing solutions that make our members' products possible, Pack Expo is a phenomenal resource for the confectionery industry," says Ross Bainbridge of Bainbridge Associates, chairman of NCA's Supplier Advisory Committee. "The Confectionery Pavilion connects our supplier members with their customers."

 

Pack Expo Las Vegas 2011 will be held Sept. 26-28, 2011, at the Las Vegas Convention Center. PMMI expects more than 1,200 exhibitors and close to 600,000 net square feet of exhibiting space at the show, making Pack Expo Las Vegas the largest packaging and processing event in the Western Hemisphere.

 

In addition to the return of the Confectionery Pavilion, the show will feature its first ever Pharmaceutical Pavilion, Processing Zone and the Reusable Packaging Association's (RPA) Reusable Packaging Pavilion. A familiar favorite, The Brand Zone pavilion will again return to Las Vegas.
