RPA Chooses PACK EXPO Las Vegas
ARLINGTON, Va.—Sustainability and efficiency will be spotlighted once again when the Reusable Packaging Pavilion returns to the show floor at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2011 (Sept. 26-28; Las Vegas Convention Center, Las Vegas). The Reusable Packaging Association (RPA) will sponsor the pavilion, as well as the Choose Reusables Conference at the show.
“With the sustainability trend growing and increasing social and economic pressures facing customers, reusable packaging can offer a sustainable solution that helps attendees stay in the black,” said Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO, PMMI. “Our continuing partnership with the RPA is one more way PMMI enables attendees to find their unique solutions that fit their businesses at PACK EXPO.”
The Reusable Packaging Pavilion will expand in 2011, highlighting reusable pallets, hand-held containers, bulk containers, dunnage, technology and other services for transport packaging solutions.
“The Choose Reusables” Conference, which debuted at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2009, will return this year to provide opportunities for attendees to better understand the value and variety of reusable solutions for B-2-B supply chains. The conference will offer keynote presentations, end user panels and interactive workshops for every level of packaging end users.
“Our continued partnership with PMMI provides a strong focus on reusable packaging solutions for end users’ supply chains, highlights the benefits of reusable transport packaging and the companies who provide the products and services to this important business activity. The Reusable Packaging Pavilion at PACK EXPO Las Vegas is the perfect location for the RPA to promote the value of reusable packaging,” said Jerry Welcome, president of the Reusable Packaging Association. “Last year’s Reusable Packaging Pavilion was a resounding success for our industry and our members, and we look forward to a repeat performance in Las Vegas in September.”
In addition to The Reusable Packaging Pavilion’s Las Vegas debut, PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2011 will feature the first-ever Pharmaceutical Pavilion, the Las Vegas debuts of the Processing Zone and the NCA’s Confectionary Pavilion, and the return of The Brand Zone.
