PACK EXPO cancelled for first time in 60 years

22 August 2020: The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies has cancelled its in-person PACK EXPO International and Healthcare Packaging EXPO scheduled to be held in Chicago this year. However, PMMI Media Group is using their digital marketing expertise and extensive industry knowledge to launch a brand new virtual event called PACK EXPO Connects 2020 which will take place on November 9-13, 2020. It will feature live chats, live product demos and equipment and engaging educational opportunities.

The new virtual PACK EXPO Connects will facilitate exhibitor and attendee interaction while continuing to provide the ability to see machinery in action through this new platform. This exciting online experience will also offer world-class educational opportunities, including daily Jumpstart sessions on hot topics from industry thought leaders along with the Innovation Stages, a staple at previous PACK EXPO events. The new Solution Room will feature expert-led education sessions, and PMMI Media Group editors will discuss highlights via Daily Download sessions, bringing attendees up to speed on the latest and greatest solutions on display at PACK EXPO Connects. A special Packaging and Processing Women’s Leadership Network event will feature an address from Jan Tharp, president and CEO at Bumble Bee Foods.

The PMMI Board decided 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. “For over six decades, PACK EXPO has been here to serve and connect the industry, and while the pandemic makes it impossible to meet in person this year, connecting the industry is still our top priority,” said Jim Pittas, President and CEO, PMMI.
