MARCO at PMA Fresh Summit 2019

The MARCO team have recently returned from exhibiting at one of North America’s largest fresh produce trade shows, the Produce Marketing Association’s Fresh Summit, held this year in Anaheim, California.

This year marked MARCO’s fifth year in a row at the popular trade show, and again it proved why it remains a solid fixture in MARCO’s events calendar. PMA Fresh Summit not only caters to the North American market but also receives plenty of visitors and exhibitors from South America as well, with Chile, Peru and Mexico being well represented at this year’s show.

 

MARCO Group CEO, Murray Hilborne attended again this year alongside Senior VP of Sales and Marketing, Mariette Hilborne and System Specialist, Jack Lidiard. Together the team spent two days running productive meetings and showcasing MARCO’s innovative fresh produce packing solutions. In particular, the team ran demonstrations of the MARCO Trac-IT Yield Control Module and Trac-IT Quality Control Module.

The Produce Marketing Association estimate that the Southern California event broke attendance records this year with around 24,000 people attending throughout the global fresh produce and floral supply chainscommunity and featured more than 1,200 exhibitors. For inspiration, both Earvin ‘Magic’ Johnson and Queen Latifah made keynote speeches on ‘Challenging yourself to Victory’ and ‘Women’s Fresh Perspectives Leadership breakfast’ respectively.

Fresh Summit 2020 is set for October 15-17 in Dallas, then New Orleans in 2021 and Orlando in 2022.
