The 2017 PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO, set for Sept. 25–27 appears to be on track to exceed its 2015 numbers, according to The Association for the Packaging and Processing Technologies, PACK EXPO’s producer. PACK EXPO Las Vegas increased its sales by 10 percent and Healthcare Packaging EXPO is up by 20 percent. Their show is predicted to be sold out with more than 2,000 companies exhibiting.

Statistics from 2015 found that 86 percent of attendees recommend, influence or make the final buying decision in the purchasing process. PACK EXPO Las Vegas expects 30,000 attendees to attend their showcase next year.

“We’re very encouraged by the number of exhibitors that have already secured booth space,” says Charles D. Yuska, president/CEO of PMMI. “It demonstrates the value the show delivers to exhibitors in the packaging supply chain.”

Booth space is now available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Washington D.C.’s up-and-coming Capitol Riverfront neighborhood is the ideal backdrop for Thompson Hotels’ new 225-room property set to open this winter. Thompson Washington D.C. will flaunt 7,000 square feet of indoor and outdoor meeting and event space with sweeping floor-to-ceiling views.

 

Pestana Hotel Group has announced that it will be opening its first property in New York. The new hotel, Pestana Park Avenue, is located at 23 E. 39th St. between Park and Madison avenues and within walking distance from Grand Central Terminal, the United Nations Headquarters, Bryant Park, Fifth Avenue and many more attractions.

 

Situated in the Laurel Highlands of Pennsylvania is Nemacolin Woodlands Resort. Despite being just an hour and half from Pittsburgh and 40 minutes from Morgantown airport, Nemacolin Woodlands Resort can be found nestled in the pastoral countryside, surrounded by expansive landscapes of mountains, forests and waterfalls.
