PACK EXPO Welcomes the Center for Trends & Technology Back to Las Vegas

Popular show floor feature, sponsored by Rockwell Automation and its PartnerNetwork™ Program, focuses on improving production through innovation.

Reston, Va.; May 1, 2015 — PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Pharma EXPO 2015 (Las Vegas Convention Center; Sept. 28–30) welcome back the Center for Trends and Technologies: Improving Production Through Innovation (CTT) (Booth C-4829), sponsored by Rockwell Automation and its PartnerNetwork™ Program.

Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO of PACK EXPO owner and producer PMMI, The Association for Trends and Technologies, notes CTT will be more relevant than ever at this year’s show, which includes the Las Vegas debut of Pharma EXPO, produced in partnership by PMMI and the International Society for Pharmaceutical Engineering (ISPE).

“The number one reason processing and packaging professionals attend PACK EXPO and Pharma EXPO is to see the latest innovations. CTT focuses on the most relevant, cutting-edge trends and technologies, to bring the greatest possible value to our attendees. This is an area in which Rockwell Automation and its partners are clear leaders,” Yuska says.

Rockwell Automation Program Manager Cheryl Lange says CTT’s displays and educational sessions will focus on technologies to enhance productivity, sustainability and agility. Topics for 2015 include the connected enterprise working environment, network connectivity, security, remote access, safety, serialization and line integration.

PACK EXPO and Pharma EXPO 2015 are on track to continue a strong growth pattern for the industry-leading PACK EXPO trade shows, an expansion that increases the relevance of CTT, Lange says.

“PACK EXPO shows are evolving and growing in parallel with the industry, and as they do, CTT’s role at the show becomes more critical. The technologies and trends Rockwell Automation and its PartnerNetwork Program showcase at CTT present major implications for production lines and more efficient operations across all vertical markets,” Lange says.

“Our shows keep growing, and in 2015, we’re on track to break the records in place for attendance, exhibitors and exhibit space. This PACK EXPO event will deliver a wealth of opportunity — because of its size, quality of exhibitors, and features such as CTT. PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Pharma EXPO 2015 will be a can’t-miss event,” Yuska adds.

PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Pharma EXPO 2015 will feature over 800,000 net square feet of exhibit space filled with 30,000 registered attendees and technologies in action from over 2,000 exhibitors.
