US - The 2016 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) has been named one of 23 events across the US to participate in the Department of Commerce’s International Buyer Programme.
The programme brings trade delegations together from around the world and helps pair international attendees with American suppliers. The Expo has taken part in the International Buyer Programme since 2007.
“We are pleased to be chosen as part of the International Buyer Programme for the ninth year in a row. Program participation is confirmation of the global scale of our expo.
"Since 2006, our attendance from outside the US has grown by 238 per cent,” stated Charlie Olentine, IPPE show manager.
The 2016 IPPE has surpassed 410,000 net square feet of exhibit space and has secured more than 950 exhibitors with six months remaining until the expo opens in January.
Comprised of the three integrated trade shows – International Feed Expo, International Meat Expo and International Poultry Expo – IPPE will be held from Tuesday to Thursday, 26-28 January 2016, at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta.
The Expo will highlight the latest technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of feed, meat and poultry products.
IPPE will also feature dynamic education programs addressing current industry issues, combining the expertise from the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), North American Meat Institute (NAMI) and USPOULTRY.
