McLean, Va. — The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) announced today that it has now surpassed the milestone of 200,000 square feet for the 2013 PROCESS EXPO trade show. The show will be held November 3-6 at McCormick Place (South and North Halls) in Chicago.
“With key additions to the show, such as co-location with the International Dairy Show and the NAMA Outlook Conference, PROCESS EXPO is clearly the place to be this fall for the food and beverage industry,” said Jeff Dahl, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association and Business Manager of JBT FoodTech. “Exhibit space sales have been very strong, especially since the start of the year as suppliers are rushing to be a part of what they know will be a huge draw for the food and beverage industry," he added.
"Another new feature of the show which is gathering significant interest for PROCESS EXPO is our innovative educational program that incorporates university experts from ten of the leading food sciences programs in the country," remarked David Seckman, President & CEO of FPSA. "Suppliers know that these technical seminars will make PROCESS EXPO 2013 a "must attend" event for their customers and prospects alike. As such, they want to be present on the show floor to highlight their solutions to this growing audience."
PROCESS EXPO's educational programs are free of charge to all registered attendees at the trade show.
