The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA), McLean, Va., said registration and housing are now open for Process Expo, the Western Hemisphere's largest horizontal trade show event dedicated strictly to the food and beverage industry. Process Expo will take place Oct. 8-11, 2019 in the South Hall of McCormick Place in Chicago.

Process Expo will feature more than 500 exhibiting companies with manufacturing solutions in processing and packaging across all segments of the food and beverage industry, FPSA said. Additionally, the show will include a wide range of show floor activities such as live production line demonstrations in meat, bakery and dairy products, an augmented reality demonstration, and educational sessions on the show floor addressing critical topics for the food and beverage industry, as well as certification courses in HACCP, preventive controls for animal food, foreign supplier verification, and dairy processing 101, to name just a few.

"This year's show promises to be our strongest ever, featuring several activities that help our audience gain a much better understanding of our technology and how it can best be used to improve production in the plant,'' said Jarrod McCarroll, chairman of FPSA and president of Weber Inc. ''Every aisle at Process Expo will boast experts from all different segments of the industry, providing attendees a value-add they just won't find at other shows. Our exhibitors will be presenting new ideas, insights and technologies that can help customers gain a competitive advantage.''
