Registration for United Fresh Marketplace 2007, set for May 5-8 at Chicago IL's McCormick Place Exhibition Center, is now open.
New this year, United Fresh has added an opening banquet May 6 to honor the winners of the 2007 Retail Produce Manager Awards Program, now entering its third year. Ready Pac is again the sponsor of the awards program this year.
Also new in 2007, United Fresh offers three half-day short courses May 5 focused on retail and foodservice marketing and a specially designed Produce Safety 101 course aimed at non-technical professionals dealing with fresh produce.
Fresh Marketplace 2007 is once again partnered with the Food Marketing Institute Show, which brings its Marketechnics exposition highlighting supply chain information technology and tools needed to improve performance.
