FPSA and Messe Düsseldorf  will provide the opporunity for cross promotion of Process Expo and Interpak. 
MCLEAN, Va. – The formal alliance between the Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) and Messe Düsseldorf has been extended through the 2023 Process Expo show. The extended alliance makes it possible to promote both the biennial PROCESS EXPO in Chicago, and interpack which is held every three years in Düsseldorf, Germany.

“Since the inception of the FPSA’s alliance with Messe Düsseldorf in 2010, and extending our relationship in 2013, the FPSA and Process Expo have been able to work alongside Messe Düsseldorf to develop both of our international reach and growth in the overseas market. Extending this alliance further until 2023 serves both our associations, allowing us to continue this important relationship,” said David Seckman, president and CEO of FPSA.

The two associations will help each other promote the shows overseas and in North America. Messe Düsseldorf will promote Process Expo in the sale of booth space and promotion of attendance to food processors around the globe, while FPSA will assist Messe Düsseldorf in the North American markets.

“Messe Düsseldorf is pleased to once again extend this partnership with FPSA. Our relationship with FPSA and Process Expo has become strategically important to both organizations and this new extension is a solid commitment to the continued development of this relationship,” said Bernd Jablonowski, global portfolio director, Processing and Packaging, Messe Düsseldorf.

Interpack, which is a leading packaging trade show, will be held May 7- 13, 2020, in Düsseldorf. The 2019 Process Expo is scheduled for Oct. 8-11, 2019, at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago, Illinois.
