AICC Pavilion gives AICC members a platform for corrugated, folding carton & rigid box capabilities
Reston, Va. - The Association of Independent Corrugated Convertors (AICC) is producing a pavilion to give AICC members at PACK EXPO International 2012 (McCormick Place, Chicago; Oct. 28-31, 2012) an opportunity to focus attention on the capabilities of corrugated, folding carton and rigid box packaging while also exhibiting individually.
PMMI, the owner and producer of the PACK EXPO trade shows, says the AICC Pavilion (Booth 5825) will be located near The Brand Zone, in the Lower North hall.
"AICC wants to promote its industry as a whole as well as its specific members," says PMMI chairman & CEO Charles D. Yuska. "So this area will, in effect, function as its own display as well as a hub for buyers considering various paper packaging formats."
This is the sixth year AICC has teamed up with PMMI and PACK EXPO. AICC member Guy Ockerlund, president, OX BOX, says his PACK EXPO experiences have gone beyond his expectations.
"At PACK EXPO International 2010, we exceeded our goals for leads and immediate sales, and we walked away with several significant continuing projects. Plus the exposure for our new products was outstanding," Ockerlund says.
Being near The Brand Zone - with its many special features - provides a great advantage for the AICC members, according to Taryn Pyle, director, Marketing and Communications, AICC.
"We feel this is a one of a kind opportunity for our members. As we join forces for our pavilion, we're elevating the profile of corrugated, folding carton and rigid box packaging. Being near The Brand Zone with its special focus on innovation and new ideas makes the opportunity even more valuable," Pyle says. "It's also a way we can send a message about the capabilities of independent corrugated convertors on a national level."
AICC members who want to exhibit in the AICC Pavilion should contact Taryn Pyle, director, Marketing and Communications, AICC, directly: firstname.lastname@example.org or 877.836.2422.
