PROCESS EXPO, International Dairy Show draw record attendance

The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) announce record attendance at the co-located PROCESS EXPO and International Dairy Show, with total combined registration of 19,155. The two events took place Nov. 3-6 at Chicago’s McCormick Place and included a total of 829 exhibiting companies occupying 314,600 net sq. ft.

“We are proud of the tremendous growth that we experienced at this year’s show and how the food and beverage industry has enthusiastically embraced our co-location with the International Dairy Show” says David Seckman, president and CEO of FPSA. “We have grown our customer audience by 25%, quadrupled the number of VIP companies and increased our international attendee audience by 40%.”

“IDFA is thrilled with the continued support from our members, exhibitors and attendees from around the world,” says Connie Tipton, president and CEO of IDFA. “The co-location has enhanced and expanded the Dairy Show without sacrificing the dairy focus that is so important to all of our stakeholders. We are delighted to report a 50% increase in our buyer attendance this year while increasing exhibit space by more than 20%.”

FPSA and IDFA recently announced that they will continue to co-locate PROCESS EXPO and the International Dairy Show, with the next event scheduled to take place Sept. 15-18, 2015, at Chicago’s McCormick Place. Exhibit sales for both shows were launched at this year’s event, and both organizations reported strong sales to their exhibitors.
