Robin Cornelison

(Washington, D.C. – March 11, 2015) The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), producer of the International Dairy Show, announced the addition of the Partner Pavilion on the 2015 show floor. The International Dairy Show is the premier trade show for processing and packaging professionals in the global dairy, food and beverage industry. The trade show is taking place September 15-18, 2015, in Chicago's McCormick Place.

“From legal and financial services to marketing, consulting and human resources, companies are searching for service providers to make their business more efficient,” said Robin Cornelison, Trade Show Director for IDFA. “Exhibiting in this turnkey pavilion is ideal for companies that do not wish to display large equipment or supplies and simply want to conduct business face-to-face while marketing their services at the International Dairy Show.”

The Partner Pavilion will offer turnkey exhibit space which includes customizable kiosks, access to an on-floor private meeting room and lounge within the pavilion. This pavilion is just one of many enhancements the Dairy Show has made for the 2015 event. The show has expanded several exhibit floor activities, including:

  • Increased on-floor education in iDairy Show Theater and programming with larger set, more seating;
  • More on-floor food and beverage events;
  • Expanded closing reception, awards presentations and pavilions;
  • Continued partnership with Collegiate Dairy Products Evaluation Contest; and
  • More networking lounges and meeting areas.

The International Dairy Show is co-located with the Food Processing Suppliers Association’s (FPSA) Process Expo and NürnbergMesse’s InterBev Process; combined, the co-located shows will have more than 300,000 square feet of exhibit space featuring nearly 1,000 industry suppliers and 20,000 food, dairy and beverage attendees.

Exhibit space sales for the 2015 International Dairy Show are ongoing. To reserve exhibit space within the Partner Pavilion, contact International Dairy Show Sales Executive Katherine Madison at For additional information regarding the International Dairy Show or to register, please visit
