PMMI, the association for packaging and processing technologies and producer of the PACK EXPO portfolio of tradeshows, entered into an agreement to co-produce a new U.S.-based tradeshow with Koelnmesse GmbH, the leading producer of nutrition-related trade fairs in Europe and Asia. The event will focus on processing and packaging technologies serving the food and beverage marketplace.
“Koelnmesse, and its Anuga FoodTec show, are world leaders in food and beverage processing,” said Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO, PMMI. “With shows dating back nearly 100 years, the experience and recognition that Koelnmesse and Anuga bring to the table, particularly in Europe, is invaluable.”
The new show, to launch in spring 2017, will provide an opportunity for manufacturers in this arena to discover the solutions that will help them grow their businesses.
“Working with this leading organization to bring a new food and beverage focused event to North America makes great sense for PMMI and ensures a world-class event,” Yuska added.
Gerald Böse, president and CEO, Koelnmesse GmbH, echoed that sentiment.
“PMMI and the PACK EXPO portfolio of shows are recognized around the world as industry leaders for processing and packaging solutions, and we’re eager to work with them on this exciting new venture.”
The 2015 edition of the Anuga FoodTec show launched March 24, in Cologne, Germany.
PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015 will kick off Sept. 28 at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
