“We thank our sponsors, exhibitors, and attendees who came out to support Converters Expo, the only event exclusively serving the converters industry," said Randy Green, group publisher of the Packaging Strategies, Flexible Packaging, and Brand Packaging magazines, and the Packaging Strategies News subscription newsletter. “Professionals from leading companies including Georgia-Pacific, JM Smucker Co., Nichols Paper Products, and many others had the opportunity to network at our opening night reception in the new Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame, followed by a full day of access to a sold out exhibit hall. Overall we received great feedback on the success of this event.”
Products and services the vendors showcased were segmented in the following categories: Equipment Companies (alignment, compressors, conveyors, presses, ultrasonic, web handling, etc.), Converter Companies (bags, films, flexo, laminating, nonwovens, etc.), Suppliers (adhesives, coatings, engraving, inks and recycling); and Services (engineering, contract packaging, supply chain, etc.)
Many exhibitors took to social media to promote their participation at Converters Expo with tweets @convertersexpo. And according to a blog post on Stockpilz, “Converters Expo is the perfect trade show filled with converter-manufacturers, a wide range of equipment, converting supplies and other related services. Every exhibitor brought high quality and impressive products/services to the expo, and provided the opportunity to learn about a wide range of new products. More importantly, the expo allowed companies to network with over 660 leading industry professionals.”
