The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA) announced that the show floor of the co-located PROCESS EXPO and International Dairy Show has exceeded 300,000 net square feet and continues to grow. To date, 700+ exhibitors have signed up to exhibit between the two events taking place November 3-6, 2013 in Chicago's McCormick Place.

"The supplier community has wholeheartedly embraced this co-location with the International Dairy Show as it further strengthens the overall PROCESS EXPO event as an important destination for manufacturing solutions for the food and beverage industry," said David Seckman, President and CEO of FPSA. "The excitement of this co-location is also shared by our attendee base. Registrations are ahead of the pace from our last show and we have quadrupled the number of VIP buying companies that have committed to bringing teams to this year's event."

“The International Dairy Show exhibit size has already exceeded our 2011 show and continues to gain momentum,” said Neil Moran, Senior Vice President of IDFA.  “The added value of the co-location, larger pavilions, more networking and the move back to Chicago has been great for all of our stakeholders.  We are delighted to host several of our member company buying teams at the show looking for everything from new ingredients and flavors to distribution solutions.”
