The selective directory below of Pack Expo exhibitors is limited to economic development organizations (area representatives) and related professional service providers which are relevant to our work, such as engineering and construction firms specialized in projects in the packaging and food processing industry.

We do not list all exhibitors (see the event organizer websites for such details).

The complete exhibitor directory for Pack Expo International was published on their website, or the Food Processing Machinery Association, with descriptive details as provided by the exhibitors.  The site includes "virtual exhibits".

The selective list of exhibitors and website links below is just for convenient reference.  We met with representatives of these organizations during the show.

We attended Pack Expo International 2004 in Chicago, including the Food Processing Machinery Expo, but not as an exhibitor.  We welcome feedback from exhibitors about their success at lead generation for future projects at the show.

The 2005 Pack Expo event was in Las Vegas Sept. 26-28, 2005.  Pack Expo International will return to Chicago, Oct. 29-Nov 2, 2006.  We plan to attend.

There was also an Expo Pack event in Mexico City, June 21-24, 2005. 

These trade shows are sponsored and produced by the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI).

This directory has been compiled to show how our "Event Recall" service can be helpful to executives and their advisors by highlighting the economic development organizations and service providers which have invested to be exhibitors at a major industry trade show.

This makes it fairly easy to identify many business areas and service providers which are investing in marketing work to attract and retain clients in this industry.  We make it easy to quickly reach the relevant contacts and content on their websites at any time.

The section headings below link to regional lists of contacts (not just exhibitors), such as to find information about neighboring areas or specific areas within a state or region.

Refer also to our Ad Recall directory of areas which advertise, or the lists of location consultants or consultant tips about location selection.  We can also highlight special promotional materials by areas or service providers which focus on a particular industry. 

Participants in our service will have more complete listings for a year (summary, contact name, phone, email, address) with links to GUIDE Area Profiles, Service Profiles, or other content to highlight their benefits for potential investors in this industry.

It may be tedious for event attendees to develop a simple list like this of all the economic development exhibitors and service providers for capital investment projects which they may want to meet during or after the event simply because they were among hundreds of other types of exhibitors and spread across several large exhibit halls.

In any case, once such an event is over, the directory information about past exhibitors may soon disappear from the event websites as they prepare for the next year, even though this knowledge remains potentially useful for the investors and advisors we serve.

Key contacts may not have attended this event, or may not have met these exhibitors there.  If they did attend, this simple list makes it easier to find these types of exhibitors again, and make it easier to plan ahead for introductory meetings at future events.

We specialize in personal, independent introductions to relevant professional service providers such as business location strategy consultants and our many economic development contacts according to the project interests of the executives we serve.

Our Professional Site Selection Tour and "Meeting Point" services also introduce site selection professionals who can assist communities through special research trips ("inward visits" or familiarization tours), pre-scheduled meetings at major events, and services designed to support their competitive benchmarking analysis, investment promotion strategies, and marketing programs.

We can also privately coordinate executive visits to one or more business locations when planning an investment project or seeking local business alliances. 

Please contact us to discuss our event marketing services and introductory referrals.
