Change, Innovation and Sustainability

ARLINGTON, Va.--PMMI, sponsor and producer of PACK EXPO International 2008, announced the agenda for the upcoming Conference at PACK EXPO. With its overarching theme of "Change, Innovation and Sustainability," the three-day program is packed with high-profile keynote presentations and more than 50 sessions presented by industry leaders and innovators.

The Conference at PACK EXPO, Nov. 10-12 at Chicago's McCormick Place, will be held in conjunction with PACK EXPO International (Nov.9-13). The conference program schedule and registration are online at

The final program was created with guidance from PMMI's Conference Advisory Panel, a group of industry leaders representing 17 companies, including more than a dozen consumer packaged goods companies.

"The panel reviewed all session proposals, no small feat considering more than 100 proposals were received for the 56 concurrent Conference at PACK EXPO sessions," says Ben Miyares, PMMI vice president of industry relations and director of the Conference at PACK EXPO.

Each day's conference programming is divided into five time periods, with four concurrent sessions planned for each time slot. Keynote presentations from top executives at Nestle, Deloitte Consulting and The Dow Chemical Company will also be featured every day at 10:10 am. This flexible schedule makes it easy for attendees to participate in the individual sessions of their choice while keeping other show commitments.
