Bethesda, MD – The Adhesive and Sealant Council (ASC) will be coming to this fall’s PACK EXPO Las Vegas, being held September 28-30, 2015 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. ASC will once again participate in the PACK EXPO Partner Pavilion, leveraging North America’s largest processing and packaging oriented tradeshow to promote the benefits of using adhesives to innovate product packaging.

With an expected attendance of 30,000+, ASC will work to connect attendees with ASC members in attendance at the show, while also providing information on training, market data and trends via its booth located at C-1251.

“This will be ASC’s 5th time exhibiting at PACK EXPO, and we look forward to another successful event where the Council can bring information and connections to the design engineers that attend PACK EXPO,” notes Matthew E. Croson, President of ASC. “Each event, we are able to connect hundreds of attendees to either members within the exhibit halls or to information and services that ASC delivers. It is a target rich environment for the Council to serve as an industry voice.”

The Adhesive and Sealant Council will also promote its Training Academy – a series of web-based training sessions designed to provide industry with fundamentals of the adhesive and sealant industry.

“ASC is all about connecting design engineers with information they can use to innovate the products they deliver to the consumer, and the packaging space is a growing area as more and more package formats look to employ easy-to-open/reseal features, or work to leverage next generation plastic laminates,” adds Croson. “ASC can connect design engineers to the companies they rely on to innovate, and also to educational materials that deliver information that is both technical and practical. We look forward to being at PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2015.”
