Packaging Trade Shows
A $700 billion market per year and estimated to reach $975 billion by 2018, the packaging industry is one of the largest in the world. It includes five main sectors with paper and board as the largest and rigid plastics as the second largest.
It takes many factors to find and maintain success in the competitive packaging industry. The use of packaging trade shows, whether to show off your innovation or to find the right partnerships, is vital to any packaging company's success. Without proper use of the top trade shows in the packaging industry, most companies won't grow and may die off.
Many trends are driving the packaging industry forward across the globe. The growth in urbanism, retail chain development and the huge growth in the cosmetic and healthcare industry are all driving the demand for packaging. Many of the trends driving the industry have caused new innovation to sprout, which is most often introduced at industry trade shows.
Packaging Trade Shows
The biggest packaging industry trade shows show off the new innovations in packaging, design and manufacturing. It's not just about a new type of box or crate. The packaging industry covers far more with numerous packaging materials and machines.
Standing out at the largest shows, such as the PPMA Total Show or the Pack Expo will make a difference. Trade shows provide the opportunity to meet decision makers and big players in the industry from all across the globe. However, a covered table with a sign won't attract the attention of the big players.
Some of the largest shows will attract over 30,000 industry professionals from all types of markets. If you rely on packaging or you're a part of the industry, you cannot ignore these shows.

• Pack Expo International (2017 Date TBD)
• EastPack - June 13-15, 2017, Jacob K. Javits Convention Center, New York City
