“The turnout for the 2018 IPPE was excellent. With three halls and more networking opportunities, we expect the 2019 IPPE to provide economic value for attendees and exhibitors alike,” show organizers said. IPPE is co-sponsored by the US Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association and North American Meat Institute.
IPPE 2018 also features a week-long schedule of education programs. There were more than 140-plus hours of sessions, ranging from a conference on preventing and responding to foreign material contamination incidents to a program on biosecurity for poultry and egg producers and live operations. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue also attended the event on Jan. 31 to address the attendees of the Poultry Market Intelligence Forum. He also walked the trade show floor and spoke to members of the Future Farmers of America (FFA) at the show.
With the city of Atlanta hosting the Super Bowl on Feb. 3, 2019, next year’s IPPE will be moved back a couple weeks and held Feb. 12-14, 2019, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Show updates and attendee and exhibitor information will be available at www.ippexpo.org.
