Each year management from Portco Packaging heads to Vegas to attend PACK Expo 2017, one of several conventions that offer exposure to new, cutting technologies in the consumer and industrial packaging industries. This year is no exception with a solid group set to attend this great event scheduled for September 25-27. And while Portco won’t be exhibiting, they will be there in force to absorb all that is new and potentially beneficial to its customers. After all, and as quoted by Portco’s CEO Kent Wall, “The only constant is change.” Well, Portco will be there to both affirm its present path and to learn about new trends it may take advantage of in the future.
