A one-stop-shop for all cold chain needs, the inaugural Global Cold Chain Expo takes place from June 20-22 in Chicago.
Created in partnership with the Global Cold Chain Alliance and the United Fresh Produce Association, this event boasts 25,000 square feet of trade show space featuring hundreds of exhibitors from every sector of the cold chain, including material handling, warehousing, construction, supply chain/logistics solutions and transportation providers.
Hosted at the McCormick Place Convention Center, Chicago, Illinois, the Global Cold Chain Expo will will put a focus on the all the products, services, technologies, companies, and employees that unite to ensure perishable products safely reach consumers around the world.
Co-located with FMI Connect, the International Floriculture Expo, and United Fresh 2016, the Global Cold Chain Expo is expected to attract more than 15,000 key decision makers from retail, foodservice, processing, production, distribution, logistics, and transportation. Attendees will represent frozen, refrigerated, ambient and fresh operations.
“Increasingly, the fresh produce industry is being challenged to compete with locally grown, short haul fruits and vegetables that are picked closer to ripeness,” said Tom Stenzel, president & CEO of the United Fresh Produce Association.
“We believe the only way we can enhance quality control in our supply chain is a deep dive into the cold chain and technologies that bring our growers, packers and wholesalers closer to the consumer,” he said.
For industry suppliers, the Global Cold Chain Expo provides a competitive advantage by building brand awareness, expanding audience penetration to all global buyers of temperature-controlled transportation and facilities, and connecting suppliers to key decision makers. Their products and services will be on the world’s largest stage in the cold chain industry.
