(McLean, Va. – November 1, 2013) The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) and the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) today announced that the two organizations will continue the successful co-location of their respective trade shows, the International Dairy Show and PROCESS EXPO, and that the next joint exhibition will take place September 15-18, 2015, in Chicago's McCormick Place.
“The International Dairy Show is back in Chicago, every other year, and is co-located with PROCESS EXPO – a perfect winning formula,” said Connie Tipton, IDFA president and CEO. “The co-location has enhanced and expanded the Dairy Show without sacrificing the dairy focus that is so important to all of our stakeholders.”
"Our co-location with the Dairy Show this year has had a tremendously strong impact on PROCESS EXPO, making it a must attend for dairy/food processors and packagers," said David Seckman, president and CEO of FPSA. "Both organizations have enjoyed exceptional growth in exhibit sales and registered attendance, and we look forward to continuing this fruitful relationship in 2015 and beyond."
Exhibit space selection for the 2015 event will commence for members of both organizations on Sunday, November 3, on-site at the 2013 co-located International Dairy Show and PROCESS EXPO taking place at McCormick Place.
