PROCESS EXPO is the largest trade show in North America dedicated exclusively to the global food and beverage industry. Spanning the entire spectrum of the food and beverage industry, tens of thousands of professionals come to this biennial event in search of the latest innovations in food processing and packaging technology for their business.
FPSA is constantly making the appropriate and necessary changes to PROCESS EXPO to stay focused on our value statement. We talk with our customers (exhibitors and attendees) about how to make the show better for them. We are guided daily by the suppliers who are the members of our association. Dialog with customers in the broad food industry and with our members prompted the most recent changes to the show.
Both suppliers and processors felt the cost of exhibiting or attending tradeshows had become cost prohibitive. To address this concern, both groups asked for the same things:
- Biennial schedule – better matches the pace of technology changes that impact the food industry
- Fall timeframe – fits into current business and global tradeshow cycles
- Food focus – broad-based to include all key vertical markets
- Centralized location – lowers travel costs
These were the drivers from which the new PROCESS EXPO evolved. It is a new format, but it is still guided by our original value statement: To deliver the most valuable tradeshow experience to food industry suppliers and processors at the lowest possible cost.
