Plexpack Makes Charitable Donations for Tradeshow Season

By | Events, News | October 5th, 2021 | Comments (0)

Pre-pandemic tradeshows and conferences were a large part of Plexpack’s business; attending several a year to promote our brand and to know our customers. While we turned significant successes through the pandemic without these events- meeting historic demands while adjusting to a new work environment- when allowed to return to them, we were thrilled. We planned to attend two tradeshows this fall: Pack Expo Las Vegas & Specialty Coffee Expo. Unfortunately, due to the pandemic’s unpredictability, we made the difficult decision to withdraw from the Coffee Expo.

We value the opportunity to support both the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) and our customers and partners in the coffee industry. However, due to the pandemic and the effects of Hurricane Ida, the best decision we felt we could make was to withdraw from the Coffee Expo. As a show of support for the City of New Orleans and all those suffering from the effects of COVID19 and Hurricane Ida, Plexpack donated both the Greater New Orleans Foundation to aid in response and restoration and Second Harvest to help feed families impacted by the hurricanes.

We did decide to continue our participation in Pack Expo Las Vegas. To further support the community of Las Vegas and assist their recovery from the pandemic, Plexpack pledged $5 for every badge scan or signature on our booth during the show to Family Promise of Las Vegas. Family Promise helps families experiencing homelessness- exacerbated by the pandemic- find sustainable housing.

We view the return of these events as a great stride forward in the revival of the economy and recognize their importance for the community and our business. This has been an incredibly difficult time for many, and while we may not be attending all shows as intended this fall, we are hopeful that we will be able to soon.
