ProFood Tech makes its debut

Registration is open for the debut of ProFood Tech (April 4–6, 2017; McCormick Place, Chicago), the most comprehensive food and beverage show in North America, transcending market sectors and showcasing cutting-edge technologies and innovative solutions.


Powered by three of the world’s trade show leaders—PACK EXPO, Anuga, and the International Dairy Foods Association (IDFA)—more than 6,000 processing professionals will converge on over 400 of the world’s top suppliers and 45 hours of blockbuster educational programming across 150,000 net square feet of McCormick Place exhibit floor.

With an advisory council of exhibitors that reads like a “Who’s Who of Food and Beverage” —Tetra Pak, Delkor, Krones, Chr. Hansen, Serac, Azo, Harpak, and Deville Technologies— ProFood Tech has massive support from all sectors, including baking and snack, beverage, frozen and prepared foods, dairy, and meat/poultry/seafood. Attendees will find innovations and crossover technologies to meet the needs of large multinationals with interests in multiple segments as well as smaller niche companies that focus on more specific needs.

“The North American market has been underserved when it comes to food and beverage processing events,” says Chuck Yuska, CEO and president of PACK EXPO producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. “ProFood Tech brings the collective resources of three of the world’s top show producers to ensure that is no longer the case.”

Educational opportunities include a world-class conference program, presented by IDFA, and the Innovation Stage at ProFood Tech. Each features recognized leaders in the food and beverage industry, the latest in consumer and flavor trends, and best practices in food processing and engineering.

In particular, ProFood Tech’s comprehensive conference program offers a variety of educational experiences covering fresh ideas and strategies on regulations and food safety, a look at consumer trends that are changing the food and beverage landscape, and key insights into business and leadership development.

The Innovation Stage at ProFood Tech highlights new technologies offered by exhibitors and industry experts serving the food and beverage industry. These free 30-minute sessions on the show floor provide a quick and convenient way to learn about critical food and beverage solutions to improve operations.

Registration for ProFood tech is $30 for a limited time when it increases to the onsite fee of $100. Register online at
