Global Pouch West Moves from California to Vegas!

If you thought last year’s Global Pouch West conference was great, you won’t want to miss the 3rd annual conference taking place December 7-8, 2016!

About the Conference

The Global Pouch West conference is sponsored by Packaging Strategies, a leader in the food and beverage packaging industry. Flexible pouch packaging one of the biggest packaging trends in today’s food and beverage space. You can probably find something packaged in a pouch on nearly every aisle of your local grocery store. From Plum Organics baby food to Starkist Chunk Lite tuna to Tide laundry detergent pods, this convenient method of packaging is just about everywhere you turn. Pouch packaging is increasingly popular for several reasons: it’s flexible, reusable, convenient for the consumer, allows for longer shelf life, and is environmentally friendly.

This year’s Global Pouch West Conference will take place at the Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas. Nearby is the Red Rock Canyon, a popular spot for hiking just outside the glow of the Vegas lights.

At Global Pouch West, you’ll find out more about why so many product manufacturers are switching to pouch packaging, learn more about adopting this revolutionary packaging method, and get the chance to network with other industry professionals.


This year, with the help of the best moving services in Sin City, the conference has moved to the Red Rock Casino in Las Vegas, NV. This beautiful 5-star hotel and casino is located away from the noise and congestion of the Strip, but still offers plenty of entertainment for those looking to have a bit of fun after the conference. Dine at one of the ten on-site restaurants, hit the links at the nearby golf courses, book a relaxing spa treatment, lounge poolside, try your luck at the tables, or hike the nearby Red Rock Canyon National Park. Who says a business trip must be all business?!

Getting to Las Vegas

The McCarren International Airport is serviced by 30 different airlines, making Las Vegas an easy destination to get to from almost anywhere in the U.S. or around the globe. For the convenience of guests, the Red Rock Casino offers complimentary shuttle service to and from the airport and the Strip. While you’re in town, it’s also easy to get around without a rental car by using Uber or another car sharing service.


The conference exhibition will take place Wednesday, December 7th from 5-7:30 p.m. This is the perfect opportunity to browse the latest offerings from top pouch manufacturers from around the world. Past exhibitors include such notable brands as Good Time Beverages, Zip-Pak, Reynolds-Presto Products, and so many more.
Between conference events, you can always lounge at the Red Rock’s fabulous pool.

Key Note Speakers

The agenda is packed with several must-see speakers giving a variety of presentations covering everything from packaging for Millennials to opportunities in developing markets. This year’s keynote speaker is John Tansey, the VP of Operations at Happy Family Brands. Since 2006, Happy Family Brands has provided parents with better, healthier options for providing nourishment to their little ones. Their line of all-organic meals and snacks are not only good for moms and tots, but also promote social and environmental responsibility.
