Best Practices 2023 EXPO & Conference to Co-Locate with Process Expo


During the Opening Session of the Best Practices 2022 EXPO & Conference, show organizers announced the 2023 co-location of Process Expo and the Best Practices 2023 EXPO & Conference. The event will take place October 23-25, 2023 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

“We are very pleased to partner with Process Expo and their co-owners Messe Frankfurt North America and FPSA (Food Processing Suppliers Association)”, said Best Practices EXPO producer Roderick Smith. “The food and beverage industry is a major user of automation requiring sustainable, safe and reliable on-site utilities like compressed air, vacuum and chilled water.”

The co-located events will provide the food and beverage industry, for the first time, with exposure to leading global experts and manufacturers of all the equipment in the entire manufacturing plant, from the on-site utilities through to the actual production equipment.

"Process Expo is the place where food and beverage industry professionals come to learn about the latest advancements in processing technology and to forge powerful partnerships. We are looking forward to working with Best Practices EXPO & Conference on this co-location, and to providing our participating companies with access to full facility sourcing,” said Messe Frankfurt North America President Constantin von Vieregge.

“We are excited about this expansion of our event as it provides yet one more reason for our food processing customer base to attend Process Expo in search of manufacturing solutions for their companies,” said Brian Perkins, President of Provisur Technologies and Chairman of the Food Processing Suppliers Association. “Given the complexity of today’s food industry and the challenge we all face to feed an ever-growing world, it is critical to continue strengthening Process Expo’s position as a one-stop-shop where processors can make the most of their time and meet with a wide variety of technology experts, including those in the utility automation areas that Best Practices will deliver to the floor.”
