The Food Processing Suppliers Association announced today that it has extended its formal alliance with Messe Düsseldorf through the PROCESS EXPO 2023 trade show. This alliance provides an opportunity for the cross-promotion of 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," stated David Seckman, President and CEO of FPSA.
Both associations will aid in promoting the shows overseas, with Messe Düsseldorf promoting PROCESS EXPO in the sale of booth space and promoting 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.
