Is Pack Expo Las Vegas on Your Calendar?

by Jackie Kuehlmann

Our bags are packed and we’re ready to go! Pack Expo Las Vegas is just around the corner and we’re gearing up to meet with customers, partners and no doubt many new faces as well. With over 2,000 industry suppliers exhibiting and 30,000+ attendees it is the place to be if you’re in the packaging industry.

Be sure to make plans to visit Inland’s booth – #S-6535 while you’re in Vegas. Our team has gathered some of our customers’ best labels and packaging to give you an idea of what is possible when it comes to shrink, pressure sensitive, cut and stack and in-mold labels plus how flexible packaging is changing the way consumers look at packaging. Not only that, but Tricia Sime and the Innovation group compiled a few of the hottest new trends in innovative labels and packaging, including smart/interactive packaging that you won’t want to miss. Think innovative labels and packaging are only for the “big guys?” Think again, we have innovative ideas that span the gamut providing everyone an opportunity to have a stand-out package.

Digital Watermarks are one of our featured innovations this year. Easier than a QR code, they provide more back-end metrics for your team plus they don’t take up any billboard space on your label or package. (Hint: if you stop by our booth you can try out this technology while tossing your name in the hat for a free iPad. We’ll be giving out one every day of the show!).

Digital printing is on everyone’s mind these days and Inland is no different. We’ve partnered with HP to offer our customers the latest in digital technology. Our brand spankin’ new HP 20000 that allows us to bring you all the benefits that come with digital printing including:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Customized packaging
  • Increased speed to market
  • Randomized designs

By Tuesday afternoon there’s no doubt your dogs will be getting tired. Why not take a load off and join Tricia again at the Innovation Stage (Stage #C-1041) from 3:00 – 3:30 p.m. She will be presenting Brand Protection That Doesn’t Undermine Brand Aesthetics, which will discuss what options you have that allow you to protect your brand without negatively impacting the package aesthetics and shelf appeal to consumers. If Innovation is your thing, be sure to sign up for our Packaging Innovation teams Innovation Newsletter here. They will keep you up to speed on the latest innovative technologies and developments in packaging on a regular basis.

One last thing, thinking the above sounds like a great event but forgot to make arrangements to go? No worries, you can still register for FREE using Inland’s comp code. Click here to access the registration page. We’re looking forward to seeing you!
