Register for the 11th Annual Pet Food Conference

From modernizing pet food labels to evaluating new pet food ingredients, the American Feed Industry Association’s (AFIA) upcoming conference is sure to give industry leaders the information they need to be effective in a changing marketplace. The 11th annual Pet Food Conference will be held Jan. 30, 2018, in conjunction with the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) in Atlanta, Georgia.

“The annual AFIA Pet Food Conference is an affordable conference that brings together nearly 400 of the top experts and leaders in the ever-growing and changing pet food industry,” said Leah Wilkinson, AFIA’s vice president of legislative, regulatory and state affairs. “Happening alongside the largest event of its kind representing the animal food and ingredients industry, this year’s lineup of diverse speakers will cover everything from regulatory issues to technical aspects to benefit everyone in this unique animal food manufacturing sector.”

Experts in the field will discuss emerging industry issues, including domestic and global industry trends, challenges and opportunities in the ingredient supply, modernization of the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO) pet food label, animal health, and more. Speakers will represent associations, private entities and universities. The full agenda is available on the conference’s website.

Online registration for IPPE and the Pet Food Conference is open. Interested individuals are encouraged to register by Dec. 31 to receive the early-bird rate of $75. On-site registration will also be available at a cost of $95.

IPPE is expected to attract more than 30,000 attendees and is a collaboration of three trade shows—the International Feed Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Meat Expo—representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by AFIA, the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and the North American Meat Institute.
