Produced by three of the world’s trade show leaders, PACK EXPO, Anuga, and the International Dairy Food Association (IDFA), the three-day event showcases cutting-edge crossover technologies and innovative solutions from 450 exhibitors over 150,000 net square feet of exhibit space in Chicago, Ill. next March. Nearly two-thirds of the dairy, beverage, baking and snack, meat/poultry/seafood, confectionery, grain/mill/cereal, fruits and vegetables, pet food/pet care and ingredients professionals who visit ProFood Tech have significant or final buying power.

“The success of the inaugural ProFood Tech 2017 confirmed our belief that the industry craved an all-inclusive, one-stop shop for their food and beverage processing needs,” said Jim Pittas, president and CEO of PMMI. “The comprehensive nature of ProFood Tech allows senior management and even C-Suite level processing professionals to find real value in one event, under one roof.”

ProFood Tech convenes the entire food and beverage processing industry with educational offerings, networking receptions and industry award ceremonies. The ProFood Tech Conference Program, produced by IDFA, offers a wide range of educational experiences covering regulations and food safety, consumer trends and marketing, food processing advances and technology, as well as business and leadership development. Additionally, ProFood Tech will welcome the Packaging & Processing Women’s Leadership Network, Emerging Leaders, Cold Pressure Council, the Manufacturing Innovation Awards, the Sustainability Excellence in Manufacturing Awards (SEMA) and more.

Since ProFood Tech occurs biennially, the ProFood Live conference debuts June 20-21, 2018 in Chicago. This bridge between show years presents the collective industry expertise of ProFood World magazine, providing real-world solutions in manufacturing, automation and sustainability. All ProFood Tech exhibitors who have purchased booth space by June 1, 2018, receive promotion at the ProFood Live event.
