The Largest Regional Food Technology Expo

Important COVID-19 Information

Chicago Section IFT is planning a GREAT 2020 EXPO & Symposium experience for both exhibitors and attendees. We are considering plans for how to best meet your needs under COVID-19 conditions.

Our goal is to make a decision on our direction in early September. If we transition to a virtual experience, details will be provided at that time.

We appreciate your patience as we consider all options for providing the best experience possible.

Questions? Please contact SuppliersNight@ChicagoIFT.org

Our Social Hour at the conclusion of the EXPO has historically been a great opportunity to continue conversations from the EXPO floor and to network with other attendees.

While this type of networking may not be available to us under COVID-19 conditions, we will explore how to network virtually.

Join more than 3000 food industry professionals from the Chicago area at the nation’s largest regional food industry symposium and expo.

Close out the day with a flourish by sharing drinks and a variety of tasty hors d’oeuvres with industry friends and associates.
