Who Should Exhibit?
Suppliers of equipment, technology and services to the food processing and packaging industry. Processors will come to a show because they will see “the best of the best” of suppliers in their industry sector. Other exhibitors should join the show because they want/need to be seen with “the best of the best” and have products and solutions that food processors need to see. PROCESS EXPO will be the premier show in North America, held biennially in Chicago and considered the “must see” show to visit!Who Will Attend?
Decision makers from around the globe representing all the major food processing and packaging companies in the capacity of engineering, operations, R&D, purchasing and general management.

This is a member run show, sponsored by The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA). Suppliers, who not only provide the financial resources for a tradeshow, but also are primarily responsible for drawing visitors to the show have united to build a tradeshow that responds to the demands of the marketplace. They are directing FPSA, owner of PROCESS EXPO, to redefine the tradeshow of the future for the processors and suppliers serving the food and beverage industries.Will you offer education?
Yes. There will be special sessions offered Monday before the show (10/31/11) and as well as Tuesday through Thursday (11/1 – 11/3) in the morning prior to the show opening each day. We will offer educational events that appeal to food processors in the areas of food safety, automation, sustainability and other critical industry topics.

Since the show format has shifted to a biennial format in the fall
, the Institute of Food Technologists (IFT) will not co-locate with FPSA in 2011. FPSA and IFT are committed to providing an exceptional experience in 2010
, and we will continue to consider options for collaboration with IFT as we move forward with this new format.
