PROCESS EXPO, the trade show event for the food processing industry, produced by The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA), has sold over 165,000 square feet of exhibit space to 264 companies to date. The 2017 PROCESS EXPO will take place from September 19 - 22, 2017 in the North Hall of McCormick Place in Chicago, IL and will also feature many international exhibitors as a result of its partnership with three German Messes who organize three of the most influential food focused trade fairs in the world.

"We are thrilled with the response from the industry for PROCESS EXPO 2017. We opened exhibit sales six weeks ago and have already sold more than 75% of our show floor with so many leading companies in the industry already committing their support for the event," said Tom Kittle, FPSA Chairman and President of Handtmann Inc and Handtmann Canada Limited. "The 2017 event is going to be a must attend event for all segments of the food processing industry." 

"We have conducted extensive outreach to the supplier and processor community this year with the goal of continually shaping PROCESS EXPO into the top processing resource for the food and beverage industry," said David Seckman, President and CEO of FPSA. "We are working diligently to implement new and exciting elements into the event, to ensure that exhibitors and attendees alike have a valuable experience during their time together in Chicago next fall." 

The PROCESS EXPO show floor will offer equipment, machinery and demos for buyers in all of the vertical industry sectors, which includes: bakery/snacks, beverage, dairy, meat/poultry/seafood, prepared foods, fruits/vegetables, confectionery/candy, co-packers, and pet foods.
