Vention at PACK EXPO East: The best in packaging and processing innovation

March 21, 2024 | Quinn Harker

From March 18th to 20th, 2024, Vention participated in PACK EXPO East, the East Coast trade show for cutting-edge packaging and processing solutions. With over 400+ exhibitors, 40+ vertical markets, and over 7k+ attendees, PACK EXPO is the place to see the most innovative industrial automation and manufacturing solutions. 

At the event, Vention presented live palletizing demonstrations showcasing the versatility and efficiency of our Manufacturing Automation Platform (MAP). We demonstrated the integration of Remote Support, Palletizer MachineApps, and our suite of automation tools to the automation solutions. These demonstrations underscored our commitment to delivering turn-key palletizing solutions for manufacturers, such as the Rapid Series, to streamline operations and achieve significant cost savings.

“What caught my attention this year at PACK EXPO East was the remarkable influx of new automation buyers and corporate representatives. Surprisingly, the vast majority had little to no prior experience with automation. The team and I had some great conversations, sharing with these buyers new technologies that are more accessible and no longer require a lot of experience in automation.” - Brian McHugh, Vice President of Sales, Vention
