Registrants who sign up before 5 p.m. on Jan. 22 to attend the 2018 International Cheese Technology Expo (ICTE) will save 20% off the cost of registration, said the Madison, Wis.-based Wisconsin Cheese Makers Association, the show’s co-host.

“ICTE 2018 will deliver more exhibits, more seminars and more networking opportunities than ever before — meaning that it will deliver more bang for your buck, too,” said Judy Keller, events director for the association. “Early registration is just icing on the cake.”

ICTE 2018’s exhibit floor will feature equipment, robotics and other goods and services from a record-setting 295 companies. A complete list of exhibitors and a show floor plan is available now at

Tom Vilsack, president and CEO of the U.S. Dairy Export Council, will kick off ICTE’s seminar programming, which will include talks on the challenges in global trade, pathogen control and food safety, cheese quality issues and solutions, and growth opportunities in specialty cheese, whey and dairy proteins, the association said. Two limited-attendance tracks will also be offered for artisan cheesemakers and for human resources and managerial staff.

“Everyone in the dairy processing industry will find programs of value at ICTE 2018,” Keller said.

ICTE 2018 will be held April 17-19 at the Wisconsin Center in Milwaukee. To sign up to attend, visit www.CheeseExpo.org
