Attendee and exhibitor pre-registration and hotel registration for the 2013 International Production & Processing Expo is now open. The International Production & Processing Expo is comprised of three integrated tradeshows, the International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo, and AMI’s International Meat Expo. Online is the only way to pre-register for the discounted price of $40 (USD) through January 11, 2013. After January 11, 2013, the registration fee will increase to $60.
The new IPPE landing page, www.ippe13.org, provides links to the IPE, IFE, and IME websites which focus on important attendee information including attendee registration, hotel reservations, a video describing the upcoming IPPE experience, and a schedule of 2013 educational seminars offered during the Expo. The global poultry, feed and meat industry trade show is scheduled Tuesday through Thursday, January 29-31, 2013, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.
Resuming for 2013 is the popular “Members to Atlanta” (M2A) program, which waives the registration fee for attendees from member firms of all three associations engaged in the production of poultry, eggs and meat for consumption, and feed and pet food manufacturers. The program is supported through the sponsorship of elite Expo exhibitors. They include Agranco Corp. USA, Alaso, Alltech, Aviagen, Ceva, Cobb-Vantress, Diamond V, Dupont, ISI-Incubator Supply, Jamesway, Jefo, Marel Stork Poultry Processing, Kemin, Mosaic, Myuang, and Pfizer Poultry Health.
“We recognize, appreciate, and thank these elite exhibiting companies for participating in the M2A program. M2A played a significant part in increasing attendance and contributing to the success of the 2012 Expo. We expect M2A to continue to generate excitement through the support of these elite sponsors,” said Mark Waller, Ingram Farms, Cullman, AL, and chairman of U.S. Poultry & Egg Association.
The Expo will highlight the latest technology, equipment, and services used in the production and processing of poultry, meat and feed products. The week of Jan. 28 – Feb. 1, 2013 has been designated as “IPPE Week” and will feature dynamic education programs addressing current industry issues. The education program schedule includes the annual line-up of the International Poultry Scientific Forum, Pet Food Conference, Animal Agricultural Sustainability Summit, and AFIA International Feed Education Program.
New for 2013 are the following educational programs: Improving Food Safety, Sanitation and Maintenance; Animal Handling: Focus on Poultry Processing; Antibiotic Conference – Current Issues for the Poultry & Egg Industry; USPOULTRY/United Egg Producers Conference on the Future of the U.S. Egg Industry; Meat & Poultry Research Conference; Processed Meats Workshop; Consumer Trends – Best New Meat and Poultry Products; Operations: Risk Management & Lifestyle Analysis; and International Regulatory Topics for Meat. Back by popular demand is the National Renderers Association’s International Rendering Symposium and the Poultry Market Intelligence Forum.
