Event Overview:

The Global Cold Chain Expo is the one-stop-shop for innovation, education and business-to-business networking for the global food industry cold chain – from producer to consumer.

The Global Cold Chain Expo features a cutting edge exposition of the tools, technologies and services needed by all partners throughout the cold chain, and an educational conference bringing together innovators and experts with senior management and rising managers from all sectors of the industry. Together, the expo and conference create the most valuable business-to-business networking event serving the global cold chain.

As a partnership between GCCA and United Fresh, the Global Cold Chain Expo will be co-located with FMI Connect, the International Floriculture Expo, and United Fresh Show.  The Global Cold Chain Expo is the perfect opportunity to spotlight the cold chain industry and its role as a critical component in feeding the world’s ever growing population by connecting farmers and producers to consumers – all while maintaining food safety and quality.

The Global Cold Chain Expo will attract more than 15,000 key decision makers from retail, foodservice, processing, production, distribution, logistics, and transportation. Attendees will represent frozen, refrigerated, ambient and fresh operations.
