April 19, 2011, Arlington, VA – After selling out the inaugural Confectionary Pavilion at PACK Expo 2010, show producer PMMI and the National Confectioners Association (NCA) are working together to bring the Confectionery Pavilion back to PACK Expo.
Totaling over 15,00 square feet, the Confectionery Pavilion will once again host a range of packaging and processing solutions focused on the confectionery industry.
“PACK Expo pavilions are designed to help attendees quickly and easily find the suppliers that serve their industries, and the Confectionery Pavilion was one of our most successful endeavors at PACK Expo International 2010,” Says Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO of PPMI. “This pavilion, and the support of NCA, were key factors in helping us deliver a successful show in 2010.”
For over 120 years, the NCA has represented the world’s best-known candy, chocolate and gum companies. Its members include leading candy and confection brands, including: Goetze’s Candy Company, Jelly Belly Candy Company, Ghiradelli Chocolate Company, MARS Chocolate North America, Kraft Foods, Russell Stover Candies, Inc., The Hershey Company, and Tootsie Roll Industries, Inc.
“Between packaging, which is our members’ interface with the consumer, and the processing solutions that make our members’ products possible, PACK EXPO is a phenomenal resource for the confectionery industry,” says Ross Bainbridge of Bainbridge Associates, chairman of NCA’s Supplier Advisory Committee. “The Confectionery Pavilion connects our supplier members with their customers.”
PACK EXPO will run Sept. 26 through 28 at the Las Vegas Convention Centre in Las Vegas, NV.
