The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) today announced final record attendance numbers for the recently concluded Process Expo 2015 with a total combined registration of 19,670 that includes co-location events the International Dairy Show and InterBev Process. The three co-located events took place September 15-18, 2015 in Chicago's McCormick Place and included a total of 914 exhibiting companies occupying 334,820 net square feet reflecting strong, solid growth in the fall event.

„The most impressive feature of this year’s Process Expo was the tremendous quality of customers in attendance“, said Gil Williams, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Poly-clip System USA and Canada. „During the show we were able to meet with a number of important customers and sit down with prospects that we are confident will lead to new sales in the short to medium term, helping us close out 2015 on a strong note and jump start our sales efforts in 2016.“



„Process Expo exhibitors did an exceptional job in promoting this year’s show to their customers and prospects and are largely responsible for growing our attendance“, said FPSA President and CEO David Seckman. „Additionally they have thrown their support behind Process Expo with over 200 exhibitors having already booked space in our next show in the fall of 2017. We are excited at these highly favorable early results and see them as confirmation that fall is the perfect time for food industry trade shows. We look ahead to a strong Process Expo 2017 featuring the new Dairy Zone, new schools in Process Expo University, as well as some of the industry’s top equipment supplier across all vertical segments solidifying the fair’s position as the global food equipment and technology show.“

Space selection for the trade fair is currently restricted to FPSA members. General sales for the 2017 show will open in the spring of 2016.
