PMMI is teaming up with Koelnmesse GmbH to create a new U.S.-based packaging industry trade show. The show will aim to help manufacturers discover new technology in the food and beverage marketplace. The exact location and name of the event have yet to be announced. It will launch in spring 2017.
Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO of PMMI, said: “Koelnmesse, and its Anuga FoodTec show, are world leaders in food and beverage processing. With shows dating back nearly 100 years, the experience and recognition that Koelnmesse and Anuga bring to the table, particularly in Europe, is invaluable.”
Gerald Böse, president and CEO of Koelnmesse GmbH, reflected Yuska’s statement: “PMMI and the PACK EXPO portfolio of shows are recognized around the world as industry leaders for processing and packaging solutions, and we’re eager to work with them on this exciting new venture.”
