Registration Opens For IFPA Global Produce, Floral Show

IFPA Global Produce and Floral Show

The International Fresh Produce Association (IFPA) has opened registration for its annual Global Produce and Floral Show, which is set for Oct. 17-19 in Atlanta.    

“I’m always excited to see how this show evolves to meet the needs of our members and our industry,” said Nelia Alamo of Markon, co-chair of the show.

“Just one example is that this year we are including the Women’s Fresh Perspectives Breakfast in the all-access registration option…upgrades like this – plus the connections to people, insights, products and solutions – is what makes the global show a can’t-miss event.”  

The Women’s Fresh Perspectives Breakfast, which features a general session speaker and recognition of the Frieda Rapoport Caplan Women’s Catalyst Award winner, will no longer require additional registration. 

“The Global Produce & Floral Show is the industry’s biggest moment of the year,” said IFPA CEO Cathy Burns. “Whether our members and exhibitors are unveiling their latest innovations and freshest products or identifying new connections, insights or opportunities to strengthen their businesses and our supply chain, it all happens at the global show. 

“This is a show for everyone in fresh, from senior executives to marketing and sales professionals to those with oversight of operations and technology implementation. If you’re a part of the global food and floral system, you belong [here].”  

The schedule of events includes networking receptions and speakers, including Burns’ popular State of the Industry address. There also are learning experiences in the Education Festival and the Food Safety and Tech X-Change sessions on the expo floor. 

More than 20,000 people attend the global show, including more than 3,000 buyers and 1,000 exhibitors. Attendees come from every link in the supply chain, all 50 states and more than 50 countries.   

Exhibitor registration opens June 25, but individual and group registration is available now.
