H.A. Bruno LLC, owners of CPP Expo Chicago/Las Vegas, announced that CPP Expo will organize regional events beginning in 2012, ending their co-location with Pack Expo International and Pack Expo Las Vegas.
“While we will always look back with gratitude toward Pack Expo and the
Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) for allowing us to develop
and co-locate CPP Expo alongside Pack Expo, it has always been our mutual
understanding that one day we would, in a constructive fashion, separate our shows,”
states Leo Nadolske, president of CPP Expo.
CPP and Pack Expo will conclude its co-location agreement with the September 26-28,
2011 event at the Las Vegas Convention Center.
CPP Expo will take place regionally in the “even” numbered
years, while holding its International Main Expo in Chicago in the “odd” numbered years.
The show demographic analysis indicates that the converting industry will benefit from the following show schedule:
April 18-19, 2012 –The Cleveland Show, The I-X Center, Cleveland
April 2013 –The Main International Event, Rosemont Convention Center, Rosemont, Ill.
May 2014 –The Vegas Show – The Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas
“The demographic analysis of our attendees influenced the
decision to bring events to Cleveland, Chicago and Las Vegas,”
Nadolske addes. “We are taking our shows directly to the customers.”
