Event Overview:

The Midwest Produce Expo is celebrating its 5th anniversary and bringing the event to The Packer’s home town - Kansas City.

It was the original goal to represent all of the major cities in the 13-state Midwest region. In the last five years, The Packer’s Midwest Produce Expo has been in Chicago, Minneapolis, and now, Kansas City.

KC offers a vibrant produce community and long history as an agricultural epicenter. In recent years, Kansas City has also become one of the hottest destinations in the country due to the revitalization of its downtown core and entertainment districts. In fact, Travel & Leisure Magazine has recently named KC in its top 3 cities to visit.

Not only is KC a top traveler destination, but also a hub in the very center of the Midwest AND the United States. Practically a direct flight from any city or a quick drive from most Midwest metropolitan areas, Kansas City is a premier destination for events.

The Midwest Produce Expo will feature a heavy dose of Midwest hospitality, Kansas City Jazz & BBQ, and of course, the most outstanding produce offered nationwide.

Don’t miss out on the 5 year celebration of the Midwest Produce Expo.
