Free Bus Service Available to 2014 IPPE

19 November 2013

US - Free bus service will be available again for the upcoming 2014 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).

The world’s largest annual poultry, meat and feed trade show will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from 28-30 January 2014. IPPE is sponsored by the US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the American Meat Institute (AMI).

Company employees and contract producers of companies actively involved in the production and processing of poultry and meat or the production of animal/poultry feed, that are members of USPOULTRY, AFIA or AMI, are eligible to participate. Complimentary registration for IPPE will be provided through the Members to Atlanta (M2A) Programme. Buses will pick up employees and growers at a location selected by the company, travel to the expo for a day of visiting the exhibit floor and return home in the afternoon. There is no cost to the company or the individuals.

Last year, more than 200 people from seven poultry complexes in Georgia and Alabama took advantage of the bus programme. The programme is available to any location within an approximate three hour drive from Atlanta.

“We encourage company managers to take advantage of the free IPPE bus programme,” said USPOULTRY president John Starkey. “It makes it extremely easy and convenient for their employees and growers to attend the expo and at no cost. This is an excellent opportunity to see the latest technology used in poultry, meat and feed production and processing. Nowhere else in the world is it possible to see first-hand such a wide variety of equipment, supplies and services used in all segments of our industries. It is also a unique and cost-effective way to recognize employees and acknowledge the role of producers.”

For companies that are interested in taking advantage of the bus programme, please contact Larry Brown at (678) 514-1985 or via email at
