We are proud to announce a new agreement between IFT and the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) to co-locate the IFT Food Expo and the FPSA PROCESS EXPO. Next year in Chicago, we will be bringing two premier events together under one roof at McCormick Place. The IFT Food Expo will be held in the south hall and PROCESS EXPO will be held in the north hall.
During its three day meeting, PROCESS EXPO draws 10,000 food processing and packaging professionals, while the IFT Food Expo welcomes approximately 18,000 attendees. This co-location partnership will be a catalyst for generating new opportunities not only for IFT and FPSA, but for all those participating as either show attendees or exhibitors.
As an additional benefit, we will be targeting corporate teams, and encouraging employees from product development, processing and packaging to experience these expos together.
Since both organizations share a common commitment to food safety, there is a unique opportunity to expand educational offerings, particularly in that area.
