Excitement Surrounds IPPE 2018

Feed & Grain kicks off its expanded coverage of IPPE

The 2018 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) once more returns to Atlanta, GA, to play host to 30,000 attendees and 1,200 exhibitors from across the world. From Jan. 30 to Feb. 1, the worlds of meat, poultry and feed processing and production will be under one roof, the Georgia World Congress Center.

Sprawling across the B and C halls of the convention center, the exhibit hall has more than 514,000 square feet dedicated to showing attendees the newest most advanced equipment the industry has to offer. Need new equipment for your operation? Get an up-close view from dozens of providers and talk to experts that will help you find just what you need.

IPPE also plays host to 140 hours of educational sessions, many of which are free for attendees. Consisting of shorter sessions, all-day events and show-long workshops, attendees can keep up to date on the latest policies and trends impacting the feed, meat and poultry industries.
