Diversified Exhibitions Australia
is organising the inaugural edition of foodTechnology Queensland (foodTech QLD) 2013 for the benefit of the State’s burgeoning food and beverage manufacturing industry.
To be held at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre from 14-16 July 2013, foodTech QLD 2013 is expected to feature more than 100 exhibitors showcasing a comprehensive display of innovative food processing technologies with special relevance to Queensland.
foodTech QLD is being held as part of the Queensland Government’s efforts to grow the value of the State’s food industry to $40 billion by 2020. With a current food value chain worth some $18.7 billion and supporting 267,000 jobs, the Queensland Government’s economic development framework ambitiously seeks to double its food value chain during the next eight years.
Having organised the highly successful triennial Australian food processing and technology exhibition, Foodpro, Diversified Exhibitions has now taken up the challenge of delivering foodTech QLD to meet the specific needs of Queensland industries.
Exhibition Manager for foodTech QLD, Peter Petherick explains that foodTech QLD 2013 will give a definite focus to the machinery, packaging and ingredients that reflect the strengths of Queensland’s food industries, in particular, those used in the meat, seafood and fruit and vegetables sectors.
More than 2,000 key decision makers from Queensland’s food and beverage manufacturing industries are expected to attend the inaugural event. foodTech QLD 2013 can already confirm world-class exhibitors such as CBS, Key Technologies, CST Wastewater, Vemag, SPX, Arrow Scientific, Wiley, KF Specialty Ingredients, Ecolab, Fallsdale, Plasdene, Titan, Innovate and VOR among others.
The foodTech QLD 2013 exhibition will be co-located with the 46th annual Australian Institute of Food Science and Technology (AIFST) Conference, which will provide visitors with informative seminars concerning food science and technology, production, processing and influences on food choices within their appropriate industry.
foodTech QLD 2013 is strictly a trade event for professionals within the food and beverage processing industries.
