The Food Processing Suppliers Association (FPSA) extended its formal alliance with Messe Düsseldorf through the 2023 Process Expo tradeshow. This alliance provides an opportunity for the cross-promotion of Process Expo and interpack.

“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,” said David Seckman, president and chief executive officer, FPSA. “Extending this alliance further until 2023 serves both our associations, allowing us to continue this important relationship.” 

Both associations will aid in promoting the shows overseas. Messe Düsseldorf will promote Process Expo booth spaces and attendance to food processors around the globe, while FPSA will assist Messe Düsseldorf in the North American markets.
