Early Industry Enthusiasm for PACK EXPO Connects
The launch of PACK EXPO Connects is welcomed with excitement by the packaging industry. Organizers reported that, two weeks after the online event launched, over 300 exhibitors have already committed to taking part in the event slated for November 9-13. Attendees can register on September 15. The event promises an exclusive interactive platform offering live product demonstrations, one-on-one chats and easy product searches – all based on months of planning and research to determine what potential attendees want from a web-based event.
Jim Pittas, president and CEO, PMMI commented: “We’re excited about the pace of exhibitor commitments – a testament to packaging and processing equipment and materials suppliers’ confidence in this new event – and an assurance that PACK EXPO Connects will showcase a wealth of solutions.”
Produced by PMMI Media Group, PACK EXPO Connects already has more than 1,000 live video demos scheduled. More than 1,000 current and prospective exhibitors participated in the ‘Getting Started with PACK EXPO Connects’ webinar which took place on August 13, and this number is expected to continue to grow. In addition to introducing PACK EXPO Connects, the webinar highlighted the key interactive features available to address what consumer packaged goods companies want from a virtual event based on PMMI Media Group research. It also provided a preview of the exclusive content that PMMI Media Group has planned for the event.
