Process Expo Shifts to Biennial Show in 2011

The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) has announced plans to transition to a biennial show in Chicago, starting November 2011. This major shift to a two-year show cycle allows exhibitors to improve their exhibition ROI and focus on one worldwide show that will host premier suppliers of food equipment and technology.

According to Scott Scriven, chairman of FPSA, “The decision was based on extensive market feedback received from FPSA industry councils and then unanimously approved by the FPSA Board of Directors at our recent annual conference.”

During the council sessions, representatives from the world’s major food equipment suppliers and show attendees overwhelmingly expressed a strong preference to move from an annual show to a two-year cycle, hosted in a major show city during mid to late fall. “There are too many shows and a diminishing ROI for each show,” was the common sentiment echoed throughout these meetings.

This worldwide event is expected to be the largest Process Expo to date and has already garnered much excitement from some of the shows largest exhibitors. It will be held November 1–4, 2011 at Chicago’s McCormick Place.
