Record Number of Exhibitors Fill RPA’s Expanded Reusable Packaging Pavilion at PACK EXPO

Arlington, VA, May 19, 2014 – Thirty-seven suppliers of reusable solutions will fill the Reusable Packaging Association’s Reusable Packaging Pavilion at PACK EXPO 2014 in Chicago. This will be the largest exhibit space and most exhibitors ever in the popular pavilion.

“The demand for reusables and for information about how to increase their adoption and ROI keeps growing,” said Jerry Welcome, President of the RPA. “PACK EXPO attendees tell us repeatedly that the pavilion and our Reusables Learning Center are an ideal one-stop forum for all their educational and product information needs.”

The pavilion will bring together 37 manufacturers, material suppliers, providers of washing and other specialty equipment, and poolers and service providers of reusable packaging systems and solutions into one highly visible and convenient location. Having all these resources in one place helps attendees get complete information about reusables, whether they are just starting with implementation or they want to evolve their supply chains further to gain more efficiencies and cost savings.

The pavilion will include the RPA’s Reusables Learning Center (Booth 6866), a presentation area where end-users will give firsthand accounts about their experiences with reusables, and RPA member companies will present research and information on trends and new products and services. Attendance at presentations in the center in 2013, the first year for the forum, was very strong, demonstrating the demand for educational sessions about reusables.

The RPA Reusable Packaging Pavilion will be located in the Lakeside Center of McCormick Place at PACK EXPO. CHEP, IFCO Systems, and Rehrig Pacific Company are headline sponsors of RPA activities for attendees at PACK EXPO. Supporting sponsors include reLogistics Services LLC, SSI Schaefer, Coroplast, and APR Allen Plastics Repair. Click here for more information about RPA activities at PACK EXPO.
