With trending industry issues and innovations related to food packaging design, migration, and expiration, the concurrent events will offer a first-of-its-kind opportunity for printers, packagers, processors, and converters to intermingle and explore the global scope of these vital facets of the graphic communications and packaging/processing industries. During the two-day overlap, attendees at either event will have all-access admission to the exhibit halls for all events.
“Industry convergence has been a hot topic and driving force for many years,” said Ralph Nappi, Graphic Arts Show Company (GASC) president. “GRAPH EXPO and the co-located CPP EXPO are geared to the graphic communications and packaging industry segments while PROCESS EXPO and the co-located International Dairy Show and InterBev Process shows are targeted at processing and packaging innovations in the food, dairy, and beverage industries. For the first time, processing, packaging, printing, and converting will all converge in one location.”
Billed as “The Global Food Equipment and Technology Show,” PROCESS EXPO is owned and organized by the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA), a global trade association serving suppliers in the food and beverage industries. Show co-location partners include InterBev Process, a capital goods trade show event covering the entire beverage industry value creation chain, and the International Dairy Show, owned and organized by the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA), which features packing, processing, technology, ingredients and distribution solutions for the global dairy.
“PROCESS EXPO, together with our show partners, is the Western Hemisphere’s leading food and beverage technology event,” said David Seckman, president and CEO of the Food Processing Suppliers Association. “With over 1,000 exhibiting companies included in the joint PROCESS EXPO, InterBev Process, and International Dairy Show, attendees will see the latest innovations for the ever-changing food, dairy and beverage industries.”
