The 2017 PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO, set for Sept. 25–27 appears to be on track to exceed its 2015 numbers, according to The Association for the Packaging and Processing Technologies, PACK EXPO’s producer. PACK EXPO Las Vegas increased its sales by 10 percent and Healthcare Packaging EXPO is up by 20 percent. Their show is predicted to be sold out with more than 2,000 companies exhibiting.

Statistics from 2015 found that 86 percent of attendees recommend, influence or make the final buying decision in the purchasing process. PACK EXPO Las Vegas expects 30,000 attendees to attend their showcase next year.

“We’re very encouraged by the number of exhibitors that have already secured booth space,” says Charles D. Yuska, president/CEO of PMMI. “It demonstrates the value the show delivers to exhibitors in the packaging supply chain.”

Booth space is now available on a first-come, first-served basis.

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.

 

Modern ingenuity, local history and curiosity shape the foundation that will soon be home to the new Hyatt Centric Congress Avenue Austin hotel. Expected to open in the fall of 2021, Colorado-based real estate investor and developer McWHINNEY has big plans for this full-service lifestyle hotel.
