No More Worldwide Food Expo
Worldwide Food Expo really was two distinct shows. In going off on its own, the new IDFA show will be held Sept. 13-15, 2010, in Dallas. The dairy association said it was looking at a number of other venues for future shows.
AMI will continue the other half of Worldwide Food Expo -- its International Meat, Poultry & Seafood Industry Convention and Exposition -- on a biennial schedule at least for its 2011 show, which will be April 13-16, 2011, in Chicago. That’s six months earlier than it has been. Executives at the association hinted they are considering an annual show after 2011 and are looking at venues other than Chicago.
IDFA reported 21,600 people attended this year’s combined Worldwide Food Expo; that’s up from 20,891 attendees at the 2007 expo. However, the association also reported there were 6,500 “qualified buyers.” Ten percent of all attendees traveled from outside the U.S., and more than 100 countries were represented.
