Near Record Crowd for 5th Annual CPP EXPO
PARAMUS, N.J.—Converting professionals from around the world came to Las Vegas to attend the CPP EXPO, with 3,579 attendees walking up and down the aisles to see the latest in converting machinery and materials on display. The near record attendance confirmed that the industry is hedging its bet on a strong and imminent economic recovery.
“We’ve all felt the bumps and bruises of the economy this year, but the attendees not only arrived in high numbers, they came ready to buy,” says Leo Nadolske, president of CPP EXPO.
CPP EXPO Las Vegas, which took place October 5-7, 2009, was co-located with PACK EXPO Las Vegas and PROCESS EXPO in the Las Vegas Convention Center with a combined attendance of 33,967, of which 22,721 were attendees only.
“We have said for the last year that to get through 2009 and the beginning of 2010 it was not going to be business as usual and obviously the attendees agreed,” Nadolske stated.
CPP EXPO Las Vegas also produced the converting and package printing conference tracks at The Conference at PACK EXPO. About 200 attendees attended the four related sessions.
