(Washington, D.C. - July 21, 2011) The International Dairy Foods Association has announced that the International Dairy Show has established a promotional partnership with Brasil Alimenta International Week, allowing each trade show to endorse the other.

"We are very happy to increase our international network and partner with Brasil Alimenta International Week on cross promotion of our mutual trade shows," said Robin Cornelison, IDFA trade show director. "It is our goal to work closely with many trade associations and international shows to expand our global reach."

As part of the co-promotional agreement, IDFA will be attending Brasil Alimenta International Week that will take place, April 10-13, 2012, Parque de Eventos Bendo Gonçalves, Brazil. Brasil Alimenta International Week attracts more than 9,000 trade visitors and 220 exhibitors. The event is renowned for creating networking opportunities for Latin American companies.

This partnership is just one of many ways IDFA has boosted the international marketing for the International Dairy Show 2011 that will take place September 19-21 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
