Pack Expo 2020 Event Canceled, Virtual Platform Planned For November

Herndon, VA — PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, today announced it has canceled its in-person Pack Expo International and Healthcare Packaging Expo in Chicago, scheduled for November 8 to 11. According to a statement from the association, its board determined that “due to the evolving COVID-19 pandemic and the current state and local regulations, it was not possible to have a safe and productive event for attendees and exhibitors.”

At the same time, the association stated that a web-based event, Pack Expo Connects 2020, will take place November 9 to 13. “At the heart of Pack Expo Connects will be what attendees have always indicated they want most: technology in action. You will be able to easily showcase equipment and products right from your plant floor, with PMMI Media Group-provided coaching and guidance. Scheduled live demos and live chat features will maximize interactions between attendees and your product experts,” according to a statement from the group.
