International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo, and International Meat Expo integrated their tradeshows in 2013, under the International Production & Processing Expo. The 2014 IPPE will bring together more than 1,100 exhibitors and over 25,000 attendees in Atlanta from January 28 - 30, 2014.
The International Production and Processing Expo represents animal agriculture, from farm to point-of-sale, combining the networking and educational resources of the American Feed Industry Association, American Meat Institute, and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association. Comprised of the three integrated tradeshows -- International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo, and International Meat Expo -- IPPE features the world's largest annual gathering of industry leaders and the most comprehensive display of the latest technology, equipment, supplies, and services used by poultry, feed, and meat companies.
For the poultry industry specifically, the International Poultry Expo is the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association's annual signature event. The funds generated from the International Poultry Expo are reinvested back into the industry in the form of research grants, educational programs, communications, and technical assistance that benefit all segments of the industry.
The International Production & Processing Expo is the world's largest annual poultry, meat and feed industry event of its kind. A wide range of international decision-makers attend this annual event to network and become informed on the latest technological developments and issues facing the industry.
The event is sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), and the American Meat Institute (AMI).
