Pack Expo Las Vegas 2005 continued its growth trend by breaking several attendance records and increasing the number of exhibitors and net square footage in record numbers.

The show, held September 26-28, 2005 at the Las Vegas Convention Center, set new highs in visitor attendance (+19%), exhibitor attendance (+12%), total attendance (+17%), international attendance (+22%), exhibiting companies (+23%) and net square footage (+14%).

"With 85% of attendees coming to the show with projects in hand, Pack Expo Las Vegas was able to connect thousands of packaging professionals and their company's projects with the innovative solutions offered by exhibitors," notes Chuck Yuska, PMMI President. "Attendees trust Pack Expo events with their critical packaging projects because of their past experience at PMMI events where exhibitors showcase the latest innovations available in the marketplace. Whether the attendee is looking for new machinery, containers, materials or components, Pack Expo delivers like no other event."
