(Washington, D.C. - March 28, 2011) The International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) has announced a promotional partnership with the American Meat Institute (AMI) to cross endorse the associations' trade shows.

"We are pleased to work in partnership with the American Meat Institute on cross promotion of our mutual trade shows," said Robin Cornelison, IDFA trade show director. "Collaborative efforts with other food and beverage associations are essential to the success of our shows."

As part of the co-promotional agreement, IDFA will be exhibiting at the AMI Expo 2011 that will take place April 13-16, 2011, at McCormick Place in Chicago. The AMI Expo attracts more than 360 exhibitors, who will display the newest technologies in equipment, packaging, ingredients and services for processors of meat, poultry and seafood.

AMI Expo will also be exhibiting at the International Dairy Show that will take place September 19-21, 2011, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Attendees will have the opportunity to view more than 75,000 square feet of exhibits, offering everything dairy, food and beverage companies need to run more efficiently, create new products and improve profitability.
