85 Percent of Show Floor Sold

(Washington, D.C. – February 4, 2015) The International Dairy Foods Association, producer of the International Dairy Show, announced that exhibit sales for the 2015 International Dairy Show have surpassed the previous show’s final sales results. The International Dairy Show is the premier trade show for processing and packaging professionals in the global dairy industry. The trade show is taking place September 15-18, in Chicago's McCormick Place.

“We’re extremely excited about the continuing growth of the show,” said Neil Moran, senior vice president of IDFA. “We have listened to our stakeholders, made significant improvements to the show and offer our exhibitors and attendees the ROI they are looking for in this must-attend event.”

During IDFA’s Dairy Forum 2015, Moran informed the 2015 Dairy Show Advisory Committee of the impressive exhibit sales progress, the expanded joint marketing campaign, additional on-floor features and the inclusion of all educational sessions and daily networking receptions on the Dairy Show floor.

“With co-location partner InterBev Process added to the mix with IDFA and the Food Processing Suppliers Association this September, the entire food, dairy and beverage industry will come together in Chicago,” said Robin Cornelison, trade show director for IDFA. “We are projecting over 325,000 combined square feet of exhibit space; this mega event is shaping up to be the most important dairy, food and beverage processing event of the year.”

Exhibit space sales for the 2015 International Dairy Show are ongoing. For information regarding the International Dairy Show or to register, visit; to reserve space, contact Katherine Madison, sales executive for the International Dairy Show, at
