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.

Wyoming’s Four Seasons Resort and Residences Jackson Hole has introduced the results of a major renovation in time for summer season. All suites, guest rooms and public hallways have been fully refreshed utilizing subtle colors and earth elements such as woods and metals. 

 

One of the nicest things about The Gant Aspen is the condominium resort’s location on the fringe of downtown Aspen in a residential area. It’s peaceful and quiet with waterfalls at the entrance and lush landscaping throughout but situated only a few blocks from shops, restaurants, and skiing at Aspen Mountain. 

Eco-Friendly

 

Denver-based Urban Villages has launched construction of the 265-room Populus at 14th Street and Colfax Avenue in the Civic Center Park area. Slated for completion in late 2023, the country’s first carbon positive hotel is ironically being built on the site of Colorado’s first gas station.
