Converters Expo set to open in April 2018

Converters Expo will take place in Green Bay, Wisconsin from 17-18 April 2018 for the 11th annual event.

This year’s expanded event will include additional exhibitor booths for the hundreds of converting professionals who attend the show to browse converting services, related equipment, testing, meet with producers of disposables and learn the latest in flexo printing and packaging.  Registration is now open at

Since 2007, Converters Expo has brought together thousands of converters of paper, film, plastics and nonwovens to meet with industry buyers, specialists and suppliers. The Green Bay-to-Chicago area is the largest converting corridor in the nation. Products that come out of these specialized processes range from baby wipes to dental bibs, labels, shrink sleeves, and pouches.  

“Converters Expo is proud to be the only one-day expo exclusively serving the converting industry. We’re celebrating considerable growth at the 2018 event, with a sold-out exhibit hall,” says John Kalkowski, Packaging Market and Media leader for BNP Media. “For many of our attendees, Converters Expo is a time to catch up with friends and colleagues while gaining industry insights. We’re looking forward to a great show this year.” 

The event kicks off on Tuesday, April 17 with the opening reception at The Green Bay Packers Hall of Fame from 6:00 – 7:30 pm.  The Welcome Reception, sponsored by Rol-Tec and TANN Corporation, will offer complimentary beverages and appetizers, and is a great opportunity to network in an impressive facility containing a vast array of Packers memorabilia. 

On Wednesday, Converters Expo will be open from 9:30 am to 3:30 pm, featuring 124 exhibiting companies and additional sponsors AccuWeb, BST North America, PRECO and Valley Grinding & Mfg.  Lunch will be served from 12:00 – 2:00 pm with a Happy Hour from 1:30 – 3:30 pm.  Visit to learn more.
