Chuck--This looks like a terrific show.  43,000 + has to exceed their expectations.  In just about every place I have worked over the years, packaging has been somewhat of an afterthought.   At GE Appliances (Roper Corporation) we did have a packaging engineer but that was only one of his responsibilities.  In the appliance industry a good number of the DOA problems have been due to transportation issues and not relegated to product design.  Great post and thank you for showing it.

Packaging engineers must be a quiet bunch, bobjengr. In popular culture, there's nary a mention of packaging engineers. You wouldn't know they exist if there were no trade journals. Yet, here we have 43,000 engineers showing up for Pack Expo.
