Messe Frankfurt is responsible for all aspects of the show’s management including sales, marketing, operations, and sponsorships.

Located in the heart of the food and beverage industry, Chicago is the premier location to host our event and it is what our customers expect.

Professionals from all segments of the global food and beverage industry attend the event in search of processing solutions. The most common job titles of attendees are in engineering, operations, maintenance, production, R&D, quality assurance, marketing and sales, and corporate management. In addition, professionals working for contract manufacturers (co-packers) can build strong relationships with both processing partners and suppliers.

The show brings together exhibitors that provide processing solutions throughout the entire cross-section of the food and beverage industry including alternative proteins, bakery, beverage, dairy (milk, yogurt, ice cream), meat, seafood, poultry, pet foods and treats, prepared foods, fruits and vegetables, and confectionery. Our suppliers can also serve processors who work for convenience store chains and commissaries as well as the expanding legalized cannabis market.
