PPE is the world's largest annual feed, meat and poultry industry event of its kind and is one of the 30 largest trade shows in the United States. IPPE is sponsored by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association and North American Meat Institute.
There were 8,063 international visitors from 129 countries at IPPE. The largest group from a single country outside the US was Canada with 1,176 visitors. The largest region represented included the Caribbean, Latin America, Mexico and South America with 3,334 visitors.
“There was a great turnout for the 2020 IPPE. With four halls and extended networking opportunities, we expect the 2021 IPPE to provide even more economic value for attendees and exhibitors,” remarked the three organizations.
In addition to complementing the exhibit floor, a week-long schedule of education programs helped drive attendance and provided information to industry professionals on the latest issues. This year’s educational line-up featured 200-plus hours of sessions, ranging from meat and poultry quality, biosecurity as it pertains to foreign animal disease, processing for antibiotic-free production, and a multilingual program focused on broiler and layer production and processing issues affecting Latin America.
Next year’s International Production & Processing Expo will be held Jan. 26-28, 2021, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Show updates and attendee and exhibitor information are available at ippexpo.org.
