Overview

Event Overview:

The Global Cold Chain Expo is the only event where businesses gather to find solutions and share best practices for managing the complexities of the perishable supply chain.

Discover the Global Cold Chain Expo

Over the course of three days, the Global Cold Chain Expo and Conference combine to deliver the most valuable and comprehensive business-to-business networking event serving the perishables industry. Companies that participate in the event gain a high level of brand recognition and targeted business development opportunities in front of key buying audiences that produce, handle, store, transport or are involved in the distribution of perishable products and are looking to optimize their supply chain and/or improve facility operations.

Co-located with consumer packaged goods in the healthy food segment, fresh produce brands, and the floral industry, the Global Cold Chain Expo delivers unparalleled opportunities to your business. It is the premier destination for innovation, education and B2B networking for the entire food industry. As a Global Cold Chain exhibitor, you’ll be located adjacent to the United FreshTEC Expo; making for easy buyers-access to both shows featuring cold chain solutions and processing equipment & technology, dramatically enhancing the number of operations and engineering decision-makers who visit the show.

More than 7,500 decision-makers and innovators from retail, foodservice, processing, production, distribution, logistics, and transportation representing frozen, refrigerated, ambient and fresh operations are expected to attend.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

Individual attendees will include direct buyers of all of the services above, including operations management, engineering, plant managers, transportation directors, and others who buy or lease cold chain services. Companies attending will include growers and other food producers who own or lease cooling equipment, cold storage or handling facilities; food manufacturers, fresh processors, wholesalers, distributors and retailers who own or leases frozen and/or temperature controlled logistics and facilities; retailers who own or lease refrigeration equipment for maintenance of the cold chain at point-of-sale; and all parties throughout the supply chain who specify refrigerated transportation services from local to global needs.
