PROCESS EXPO organizers are broadening packaging educational opportunities at its annual exhibition and conference.
Scheduled November 3-6 in Chicago, PROCESS EXPO is produced by the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA). The group has expanded its PROCESS EXPO University with a session that looks at what the future holds for the food packaging industry.
“Packaging in the New Millennium” will be presented on the show floor on Monday, November 4 and Tuesday, November 5. The two-day session will feature panels of packaging professionals from high-profile processors, who will share insight on food and beverage packaging innovation and trends.
Admission to this and all all PROCESS EXPO University sessions is free to all registered show attendees.
Exposure to ideas
According to FPSA president and CEO David Seckman, the event offers attendees a chance to view a broad range of packaging and processing technology and ideas.
“A significant portion of PROCESS EXPO exhibitors provide packaging solutions for the food and beverage industry,” he said. “This has been driven by our customer base, attracted by its singular focus on food and beverage manufacturing solutions, be it in processing or packaging.”
Three shows in one
This year’s PROCESS EXPO 2013 is co-located with the International Dairy Show and the North American Meat Association's (NAMA) Outlook Conference. Attendees who register will be able to freely access exhibits and programming of all three events.
Food packaging is a growing business. As FoodProductionDaily.com reported in May, market intelligence firm Visiongain expects global food packaging sales to approach $252bn this year .
