This year’s PMA Fresh Summit, held in Anaheim, California, saw a record number of attendees, with 24,000 professionals from the sector. Attendance may have been boosted by having the expo on a Friday and Saturday, as opposed to on a Saturday and Sunday, as was previously the case before last year’s switch.
The exhibition was divided into Produce Marketplace, Complementary Items Marketplace, Solutions Marketplace, and Floral Marketplace. Underlining the international dimension of the event, there were retailers and importers from across the world. There was a strong focus on sustainable solutions for throughout the supply chain, as well as smart solutions using artificial intelligence.
Next year’s PMA Fresh Summit will be held from October 15-17 in Dallas, Texas.
