Technology and materials solutions have changed a lot in the last year, and Pack Expo 2023—held September 11 through 13 in Las Vegas—is the first opportunity to see these solutions in person, all in one place. Attendees across myriad industries will leave convinced that this even is well worth the investment in that it will enable them to get up to date on current technologies and trends, identify more efficient and effective production solutions, and ultimately help their companies stay ahead of the curve. 

From front-of-the-line through packaging and distribution, Pack Expo offers more solutions in one location than anywhere else. Attending will allow professionals to accomplish more during this three-day event than a year’s worth of product research. A few highlights include over 2,000 packaging and processing solutions suppliers; seven solutions-driven, targeted pavilions—The Processing Zone, The Containers and Materials Pavilion, The Logistics Pavilion, The Package Printing Pavilion, The Healthcare Packaging Pavilion, The Confectionery Pavilion, and The Reusable Packaging Pavilion; as well as over 100 free sessions focused on newly available technologies, best practices, e-commerce, safety, sustainability, and other topics.


The Emerging Brands Summit is back! The one-day event-before-the-event will take place on September 10, just prior to the official Pack Expo kick-off. The Summit is designed for fast-growing brands seeking to scale their manufacturing operations and includes new additions to enhance the attendee experience. 

The Emerging Brands Summit connects consumer packaged goods professionals with industry experts; contract manufacturing and packaging providers; and leading packaging and processing suppliers. The program features educational sessions and panel discussions, tabletop exhibits, and networking, with content designed for founders and decision makers of high-growth brands who are scaling operations, or leaders of product development, operations, or finance.

In addition to the main-stage presentations, attendees will have access to concurrent breakout sessions throughout the day, providing additional educational programming. These sessions will cover a range of topics relevant to emerging brands, such as incorporating automation, financing capital requirements, and planning operations with the intention to be acquired.

The Summit will also offer a digital marketplace where attendees can browse and discover resources before, during, and after the event. This marketplace will include suppliers, vendors, and service providers specifically geared towards supporting emerging brands.


There’s nothing like getting together with thousands of fellow professionals who “get” the industry and speak the same language. With 30,000 packaging and processing professionals gathered in one place, attendees can look forward to amazing networking opportunities and special events at Pack Expo Las Vegas. 

Simply being at the show together provides a natural ice breaker to make connections with people from every kind of company and vertical industry. Casual chats on the show floor can turn into partnerships. And at special networking events, the energy is even better. 

Target networking events on the 2023 schedule include the Packaging and Processing Women’s Leadership Network Breakfast, the First-Time Attendee Networking Reception, the Young Professionals Networking Event, and the ever-popular Confectionery Industry Networking Reception—which promises a sweet time for all.


Pack Expo 2023 offers free access to over 100 innovation-defining sessions that explore a huge variety of packaging and processing topics through knowledge sharing opportunities. Attendees can learn about best practices, new technologies, trends, common issues, and more. All sessions are free and right on the show floor, making it convenient for any attendee to catch a presentation or participate in a roundtable discussion.

Interactive sessions in The Forum at Pack Expo Las Vegas provide the opportunity to discuss new ideas and collaborate on solutions to widespread issues and trends such as digitalization, cyber security, sustainability, and automation. Each forty-five-minute session begins with a presentation before participants are invited to discuss the issue further in small roundtables.

Meanwhile, at the Innovation Stage, attendees can get up to speed on new technologies, best practices, and more during fast-paced, thirty-minute presentations by suppliers and topic experts. With over seventy sessions on various stages, attendees have numerous opportunities to expand their knowledge base.


While at the show, attendees can meet with nearly every type of vendor for every kind of product, production line, and supply chain—which makes Pack Expo ground zero for the next wave of processing and packaging innovation.
