Organizers rate Pack Expo '92 a success.

Pack Expo '92's sponsor, the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI), recently announced that after tallying all visitor registration information, the show broke all previous Pack Expo records.

As of the show's closing at Chicago's McCormick Place on November 12, the exposition set new records for pre-registration, total show attendance, number of international visitors, number of exhibitors and total square footage of exhibit space.

"I think this record breaking show gives the industry renewed reason to be hopeful that the U.S. economy has finally turned the corner and is poised for a full recovery in the months ahead," commented PMMI's executive director Chuck Yuska. "Judging from the record turnout, I would have to say there appears to be a great deal of pent-up demand for new equipment, materials and other goods and services provided by our show exhibitors."

According to Yuska, by the end of the convention, Pack Expo '92 had recorded over 65,000 attendees, 5,201 of which were international visitors.

"We are elated with the results of the show," said PMMI show chairman Dick Smith. "It was a great success and we found that the new Sunday opening greatly enhanced the overall attendance, both in the quantity of visitors and the turn-out of top purchasing decision-makers.
