Maximize your impact. RIGHT BUYERS. RIGHT HERE.

September 26-28, 2011 Las Vegas Convention Center Las Vegas, Nevada USA P r o d u c e d by :


THE RIGHT MOVE TO MAXIMIZE VALUE Step Up to Sponsorship. Extend Your Impact Beyond Your Booth. Announce yourself to 25,000 of packaging and processing’s top decision-makers from around the world with a sponsorship at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2011. As a sponsor, you’ll immediately identify yourself as an active participant in North America’s largest, most important event of the year. Through a variety of unique opportunities, you’ll… Boost Your Booth’s Efficiency. Studies show that sponsorship can increase your exhibit’s efficiency by a whopping 104%—generating more traffic per square foot, which means more contacts, more leads, more prospective sales, and more value for your marketing dollar. Rev Up Your Presence for the Long Run. Certain PACK EXPO sponsorships include recognition in print and on packexpo.com (the industry’s leading online resource, year-round)— extending your investment both before the show and long after the last booth goes down. Promote Your Important Product. Sponsorships naming a specific product or service magnify its visibility for the whole industry—turbo-charging a new-product introduction or sales of your signature service. Position Yourself as a Leader. Along with sponsorship comes the invaluable prestige of industry leadership—establishing you not only as an important presence in the marketplace, but also as an investor in the entire packaging and processing community.
