Partnerships amplify industry value

Herndon, Va.; Feb. 15, 2022 – The Association Partner Program returns to PACK EXPO East (March 21-23, 2022; Pennsylvania Convention Center, Philadelphia) providing a one-stop location to connect attendees with associations dedicated to advancing the packaging and processing industry.

Now in its fifth edition, the three-day regional event has already surpassed net square footage of years past and stands proudly to be the biggest PACK EXPO East in its history. Endorsed by top industry associations, the Partner Program brings together a valuable mix of professionals, enriching the connections and encouraging industry-wide collaboration.

“The breadth and depth of industry knowledge brought by these partners is an invaluable resource to attendees and exhibitors participating in the show,” says Laura Thompson, vice president of trade shows, PMMI. “With so much change over the past two years, we are proud to host PACK EXPO East with the unwavering support of these prestigious associations. Together we aim to add value to our resilient industry.”


Associations in the 2022 PACK EXPO East Partner Program include:

  • Adhesive and Sealant Council
  • AIM North America
  • AIPIA, the Smart Packaging Association
  • CPA, The Association for Contract Packagers and Manufacturers
  • Flexible Packaging Association (FPA)
  • F4SS, The Foundation for Supply Chain Solutions
  • Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP)
  • OMAC – The Organization for Machine Automation and Control
  • Reusable Packaging Association (RPA)

PACK EXPO East’s Northeast location provides a convenient and rewarding opportunity for consumer-packaged-goods (CPG) and life sciences companies to explore packaging and processing technologies for 40+ vertical markets, connect with suppliers and find the solutions needed to adapt and compete in a changing marketplace.

Featuring 400 exhibitors, attendees get the best of both worlds—the ability to see a comprehensive range of packaging and processing technologies yet still have time for productive, in-depth discussions with vendors to solve pain points and address challenges.

Just a drive or train trip away for most of the east coast, no other event will offer such a wide range of state-of-the-art packaging and processing solutions as PACK EXPO East. For more information and to register, visit To learn about the PACK Ready plan, visit
