Industrial Pack Debut Called a Success

ATLANTA, GA | Exhibitors at Industrial Pack, dedicated to the North American industrial, transit, and protective packaging market, have hailed the first edition of the event as a resounding success, according to organizer Easyfairs. Held April 4–5 at the Cobb Galleria Centre in Atlanta, the show brought together more than 1,000 of the market’s packaging engineers, technicians, specifiers, and buyers with suppliers of industrial, transit, and protective packaging.

Representatives of household-name businesses from a range of industrial sectors visited the show to source new solutions and meet suppliers, including 3M, Akzo Nobel, BASCO, Bostic, Caterpillar, Coca-Cola, Eastman Chemical Company, HB Fuller, Henkel Corporation, Honda, MetroSite, Pratt & Whitney, Nordson, Nova Chemicals, Procter & Gamble, Snap-on-Tools, Solvay USA, The Dow Chemical Company, Unilever, Viking, Wayfair, Yamaha, and many more.

Features at the show included the first Industrial Packaging Awards, which celebrated outstanding new products and initiatives in the industry, and the Industrial Pack Conference, which saw experts share case studies and insights on trending topics including sustainability, cost management, legal compliance, tariffs, and more. The show floor was also host to Pack Testing Live, which featured a range of packaging formats being demonstrated in front of a live audience. Organizers say plans are underway for the second edition of the event, which will be back at the Cobb Galleria Centre on March 27–28, 2019.

Event manager Tim Rusbridge says, “It’s been fantastic to see this event come to life, and we’re delighted with the feedback we’ve had from both visitors and exhibitors for this launch edition. The quality of the booths and the senior positions of our visitors only underlined the need for a show of this type to serve the industrial, transit, and protective packaging sector.

He adds, “The features ensured that the show offered the visitors great opportunities to learn from, and network with, the leaders of this dynamic industry and colleagues across the business. We have laid a strong foundation for next year’s event, and we’re really looking forward to working with our many partners and friends in the industry to ensure it connects and inspires the sector even better than this year’s.”
