The Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) has issued a call for nominations for the Packaging Hall of Fame. Every year since 1972, a select number of career packaging professionals have been inducted into the Hall of Fame in recognition of significant contributions made to both the industry and to packaging education efforts. Formerly coordinated by the Packaging Education Forum (PEF), the Packaging Hall of fame has been turned over to PMMI to continue this tradition of honoring packaging leadership. Once nominations are received, member of the Packaging Hall of Fame Commission - a group formed by PMMI - will select the inductees. The Class of 2005 inductees will be recognized during an awards reception at the Las Vegas Hilton Hotel on Monday, Sept. 26, during PACK EXPO Las Vegas 2005. The show is scheduled to run from Monday, Sept. 26 to Wednesday, Sept. 28 at the Las Vegas Convention Center. The deadline for Hall of Fame nominations is Friday, July 29, 2005.
