Does anyone know of any packaging shows? Anywhere in the world, but North America and China preferred.

iab: How much of the show is cool new boxes and plastic clamshells and how much are giant machines that pack 10 widgets into a box at a rate of 1,000,000 per hour?

I haven't had a chance yet to attend it myself, but I've heard good things about the The Dieline portion of the HOW Design Conference. https://www.eiseverywhere.com/ehome/91114

40% the former, 60% the latter.

The "cool" stuff tends to be from promotional companies that do specialty packaging. There will be a few of those. Then you have your manufacturers that print paper , those that print film, those who deal with SBS, those with corrugate, blow-molding bottles, caps, dispensers, vacuum forming, etc.

Then you will get the automation guys.

Its in Chicago every other year, I go on the forth year. Not a lot new in the world of packaging.
