It still feels like summer at Specright HQ in Southern California, but the reality is it’s fall, and that means… Pack Expo is just around the corner.

Pack Expo is the largest conference dedicated to packaging in the world and is taking place at the McCormick Center in Chicago, IL from October 23-25. 

If you’re planning on attending, here’s a preview of what you can expect at our booth – and beyond.  

Live Product Demos 

This almost goes without saying, but we’ll have multiple TVs and our Specright experts standing by to walk you through the latest and greatest product demos. 

We’ll have demos specific to food & beverage, CPG & beauty, industrials and sustainability. 

Since last year’s Pack Expo in Las Vegas, we’ve released almost  50(!) new features, so even if you’re a seasoned Specright expert, you won’t want to miss this. 

Ecosystem & Partner Activations

At Specright, we pride ourselves on growing the Specification Management ecosystem. That’s why, for the first time at Pack Expo, we’re proud to host some of our partners in the booth!

Trayak will stop by to talk about their Lfe Cycle Assessment (LCA) integration and how it’s helping companies run more frequent, more accurate LCAs. 

TOPS will stop by to talk about how their integration with Specright is helping packaging professionals run load and packaging optimizations with the click of a button.

Spec Squad will also be in attendance. This team of data experts works with companies to gather, standardize, and digitize data from suppliers and legacy systems — to get you up and running on Specright’s Specification Management platform without needing to pull in your own resources.

Specright’s presence will also be reflected in academia events at MSU, Virginia Tech and others. 

Booth Schedule:

Spec Squad - Sunday: 10 am - 1 pm & Tuesday 11 am - 2 pm

Trayak - Monday: 12 - 3 pm

ISTA PackSight - Tuesday: 9 - 11 am

TOPS - Tuesday: 1 - 4 pm

Access to Specright’s Leadership Team

Want to understand the future of Specright’s strategy or product roadmap? Or maybe you just want to advocate for a new feature you’ve been waiting for. 

Specright’s executive team – including founder & CEO Matthew Wright, Chief Technology Officer Ayman Shoukry, SVP of Global Sales Jim Borri, and myself will be in attendance. 

We’ll have an enclosed office space, so you can schedule time to meet with executives here (based on availability – these spots fill up fast, so be sure to reserve your meeting time now).

Beyond the Shelf Podcast Recordings

Beyond the Shelf: the Product & Packaging Podcast is sponsored by Specright. I've interviewed leaders like former Bumble Bee Foods CEO Jan Tharp, Liquid IV’s Shawn Lavin, and Carter Cast, former CEO of 

I will be in the booth recording industry excerpts live from the field! And if there’s an expert or industry leader you think we should talk to, let us know here (and yes, you can nominate yourself :))

With a 5 star rating and almost 3,000 downloads, you won't want to miss us recording episodes from Pack Expo!

Bonus: Specright Swag

We’d be remiss if we didn’t highlight our Specright swag giveaways! We pride ourselves on bringing quality giveaways that won’t be sure to end up in a landfill.

This year, we’re featuring Specright trucker hats, showcasing common packaging specs (for the packaging nerd in all of us), stickers, and t-shirts with the new Specright branding

We look forward to seeing you in Chicago soon!
