The AJ Adhesives, Inc. & Mid-America Packaging teams made it out to the Las Vegas Pack Expo 2021. The PACK EXPO Las Vegas and Healthcare Packaging EXPO, was a HUGE success with over 23,000 attendees, over 1,500 exhibitors across four expansive halls, and more than 740,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space at the Las Vegas Convention Center – making it the largest trade show in the U.S. in 2021 so far!

Our team celebrated the amazing event with our pals at H.B. Fuller Company and Astro Packaging at dinner, and our MAP rep from St. Louis, MO, Mike Otto, was seen working the Hitachi booth.

The show was reported to be the largest and most successful by all who attended. Chance Chaffin, production coordinator, Heritage Distilling Co. came to PACK EXPO Las Vegas looking for packaging machinery, but was surprised and overcome with all the additional opportunities the show provided. “I came to PACK EXPO Las Vegas to find new packaging machinery for my distillery company and what I encountered was so much more. Between PACK to the Future, Innovation Stage sessions, and networking, I learned much more than I expected in a way you can’t do online,” notes Chaffin. “With such a massive show, there’s nothing you can’t find at PACK EXPO.”
