GCCA announced that next year's venue and dates for the Global Cold Chain Expo will be the Hilton Anatole in Dallas, TX, September 28 - September 30, 2020. In 2020, the Expo will be a standalone event and not held in conjunction with FreshMarket and FreshTech. The move from Chicago was made with careful consideration, support and guidance from the GCCE Task Force made up of warehouse attendees and all different categories of exhibitors as well as approval from the IARW and WFLO Board Members. Moving from a convention center to a hotel environment that encompasses an expo hall, meeting space, and sleeping rooms all under one roof facilitates greater networking and community. Finding a lower price point for hotel rooms and overall cost of participation for attendees and exhibitors was a key driver in the move to Dallas. United Fresh Produce Association will still be a partner in the Expo and facilitating attendance from the fresh produce community.
