The Packaging Machinery Materials Institute is launching a redesigned packexpo.com website, fully aligned with PMMI’s PACK EXPO events. The new show-centric site will support packaging professionals with all aspects of attending PACK EXPO Las Vegas (Oct. 5-7, at the Las Vegas Convention Center) and allow them to continue to take advantage of those resources throughout the year.
Visitors to the site can plan their trip to the show by searching for exhibitors and specific technologies, scheduling meetings, creating personalized event maps and researching Conference at PACK EXPO education sessions. Attendees will also be able to use the site and the information they’ve gathered for several months after the show closes.
Visitors to the new site will also find enhanced functionality. For example, exhibiting companies will have comprehensive online booths that include detailed product pages, press releases on new innovations and information on show-related benefits or added-value programs available during PACK EXPO Las Vegas. Online listings will remain active for several months after PACK EXPO Las Vegas ends, ensuring attendees can follow up with exhibitors and close the loop on business activity.
Once packaging professionals officially register for the show, they can take the pre-planning process a step further with the help of My PACK EXPO™. These interactive portals allow attendees to locate specific suppliers and solutions, make booth appointments with exhibitors, register for the Conference at PACK EXPO educational sessions and talk with industry peers.
Attendees can plan a trip to PACK EXPO Las Vegas from a PDAs thanks to ChirpE technology. This downloadable application links users directly to Packexpo.com in real time and allows them to search for products, exhibitors and sessions, create itineraries and download floor maps. This new service will be available in late September.
Other features include an Exhibitor News page highlighting press releases on new innovations and technology exhibitors will feature; a special section for international visitors, with show information provided in Spanish, French, Portugese, Chinese and Japanese; a link to the official PACK EXPO Las Vegas housing site to lock in specially negotiated hotel rates; a Las Vegas Travel page; and an Industry Resources area containing PMMI’s Packaging Intelligence Briefs and details on PMMI U and Certified Trainer programs, including the PMMI Career Center.
