ARLINGTON, VA | PMMI, the producer of the Pack Expo trade shows, announces that DuPont will be one of the title sponsors for the Leadership Lecture at Pack Expo Las Vegas 2011, to be held Sept. 26-28, 2011, Las Vegas, NV. It will feature keynote speaker retired General Colin L. Powell. General Powell will speak on “Diplomacy: Persuasion, Trust & Values” on Tuesday, Sept. 27, 2011, at the Las Vegas Convention Ctr.
“We are excited to have Colin Powell as a keynote speaker, and equally excited to have DuPont’s endorsement of this program as a title sponsor,” says Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI. “We appreciate DuPont’s continued support of PMMI and Pack Expo .”
General Powell is a retired four-star general and previously served as National Security Advisor under President Ronald Regan and the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Presidents George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton. In 2001, President George W. Bush appointed General Powell to be Secretary of State. He held that position until 2005. For the past decade, General Powell has been committed to improving the lives of America’s youth. He is the founding Chairman of America’s Promise Alliance—an organization that works with over 400 partner organizations to provide resources that build better lives for America’s youth.
PMMI expects more than 1,200 exhibitors and close to 600,000 net sq ft of exhibiting space at the show, making Pack Expo Las Vegas the largest packaging and processing event in the Western Hemisphere, according to PMMI sources.
