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.

Daily life has been significantly altered by COVID-19, no matter the industry. Many are working from home, while children stay inside for online schooling. Meetings and events have been hit especially hard, since the essence of the industry is face-to-face interactions. While we continue to self-isolate, plenty of organizations have been offering webinars with insights on how to handle the pandemic—watching webinars is a great way to use that extra time you might have used for your commute to learn something useful.

 

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

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.
