NEWARK, DE & WASHINGTON, DC - In less than two weeks’ time, industry members from all over the globe will be heading to Anaheim, California. While this place is also home to the Happiest Place on Earth, the International Fresh Produce Association’s (IFPA) Global Produce & Floral Show (GPFS) will be playing host to some excited fresh folks.

Nelia Alamo, Vice President of Marketing, Markon Cooperative“In just two days in October, more than 20,000 global show attendees from 60-plus countries will discover solutions their businesses need to succeed,” said IFPA Exposition Chair Nelia Alamo, Vice President of Marketing for Markon Cooperative. “Our exhibitors are ready to match their expertise and innovations to the needs of our industry.”

GPFS will house more than 1,000 exhibitors, who will be debuting their latest products and services alongside a robust emphasis on technology and innovation. Attendees will get to see the newest products and services at the Fresh Ideas Showcase. New this year is The Innovation Hub, home to all things tech, including IFPA’s Fresh Field Catalyst (the association’s tech accelerator), Tech Xchange (an area for peer-to-peer discussions led by industry experts), and the FutureTECH Pavilion.

As noted in the release, the Innovation Hub will host an AgTech Celebration Friday, October 20, 3:30–4:30 p.m., immediately following a 3 p.m. fireside chat on Artificial Intelligence (AI) with Dr. Elliott Grant, Chief Executive Officer of Mineral, an Alphabet Company. The hub is also the site of Food Safety & Tech X-Change sessions.

“In addition to what they find at the Innovation Hub, attendees will find all things tech—including robotics, sustainability, precision technologies, data solutions, food safety, labeling and packaging, transportation, traceability, and more—throughout the expo,” Alamo said. “IFPA and our exhibiting companies recognize that our future depends on new technology and product innovation, and the global show expo is where we will glimpse that future.”
