The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) recently announced final record attendance numbers for PROCESS EXPO 2015, with a total combined registration of 19,670 that includes two co-located events, the International Dairy Show and InterBev Process. The three co-located events took place Sept. 15-18 at Chicago’s McCormick Place and included a total of 914 exhibiting companies occupying 334,820 net square feet of trade show floor space.

“PROCESS EXPO exhibitors did an exceptional job in promoting this year’s show to their customers and prospects, and are largely responsible for growing our attendance,” says FPSA president and CEO David Seckman. “Additionally, they have thrown their support behind PROCESS EXPO, with over 200 exhibitors having already booked space in our next show in the fall of 2017. We are excited at these highly favorable early results and see them as confirmation that fall is the perfect time for food industry trade shows. We look ahead to a strong PROCESS EXPO 2017 featuring the new Dairy Zone, new schools in PROCESS EXPO UNIVERSITY, as well as some of the industry’s top equipment supplier across all vertical segments solidifying PROCESS EXPO’s position as the global food equipment and technology show.”

Space selection for PROCESS EXPO is currently restricted to FPSA members. General sales for the 2017 show will open in spring 2016.
