PROCESS EXPO 2011: Record Breaking
McLean, VA - The Food Processing Suppliers Association today announced registered attendees of 12,732 for PROCESS EXPO 2011, which took place from November 1-4, 2011 at McCormick Place in Chicago. International attendees at this year's event totaled just over 14% of visitors with the largest delegations coming from Canada, Mexico, Colombia, Venezuela and Germany.
"We're very happy with the strong turnout at this year's show," said Scott Scriven, Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and President of Weber, Inc. "Not only did we double the size of the show floor over last year's, we delivered more than twice as many attendees to the show at the same time. When you take the economy into account and what is going on at other industry trade shows, these results are absolutely remarkable and demonstrate the industry's enthusiastic support of a horizontal tradeshow dedicated entirely to the food and beverage industry."
"This year, special attention was placed on the attendee experience at PROCESS EXPO," explained FPSA President and CEO David Seckman."This year's show featured a greatly expanded educational program built with input from the food processor community. Culinary and industry council pavilions highlighted finished products for the consumer, and mobile resources such as the PROCESS EXPO mobile app and eDaily provided attendees with more information at their fingertips."
In 2010, FPSA announced that PROCESS EXPO was moving to a biennial show cycle. The next PROCESS EXPO is scheduled for October 14-17, 2013 in the North Hall of Chicago's McCormick Place. More information on PROCESS EXPO 2011 and on future events can be found at www.myprocessexpo.com
