The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) today announced that they have signed an agreement to co-locate PROCESS EXPO and the International Dairy Show in Chicago, beginning in 2013.

The two shows will take place November 3-6, 2013, bringing together over 800 exhibitors and 15,000 industry professionals in the North and South Halls of McCormick Place. Attendees will have unlimited access to both show floors and educational programs.

"We are very excited to co-locate PROCESS EXPO with IDFA's International Dairy Show, as it truly is the nation's premier trade event for the dairy industry," says David Seckman, president and CEO of FPSA. "Considering the explosive growth we experienced at our last show, we are confident that this co-location will help us to continue building PROCESS EXPO into an event that simply can't be missed."

"IDFA considers co-location with PROCESS EXPO a great way to enhance and expand our show without sacrificing the dairy focus that is so important to all of our stakeholders. It will allow us to bring to exhibitors even higher numbers of qualified buyers while helping exhibitors make the most of their marketing expenditures," says Connie Tipton, IDFA president and CEO. "By returning to Chicago, selecting a later fall date and teaming with FPSA, we have achieved the best blend for 2013."

Staff from the two organizations will continue to be responsible for their respective shows, including conducting sales and marketing activities, developing educational programs and meeting the operational needs of their exhibitors.

Exhibit space sales for both the International Dairy Show and PROCESS EXPO will begin in May. For information regarding PROCESS EXPO, visit www.myprocessexpo.com; to reserve space, contact FPSA Sales Director Grace Cular Yee at gyee@fpsa.org
