US - Attendee and exhibitor registration and hotel registration for the 2016 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) is now open.
IPPE has secured more than 1,000 exhibitors and is expecting to attract more than 28,000 attendees through the collaboration of the three trade shows - International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo and International Meat Expo - representing the entire chain of protein and feed production and processing.
The event is sponsored by US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the North American Meat Institute (NAMI).
Attendees and exhibitors can register online to receive a discounted price of $50 (USD) until 31 December 2015. From 1 January 2016, the registration fee will increase to $100.
The IPPE website, www.ippexpo.org, offers access to important information including attendee and exhibitor registration, hotel registration and a schedule of 2016 educational seminars and activities offered during IPPE.
The annual global feed, meat and poultry industry trade show is scheduled Tuesday to Thursday 26-28 January 2016, at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
Resuming for 2016 is the popular “Members to Atlanta” (M2A) programme, which waives the registration fee until 31 December, for attendees from member firms of all three associations engaged in the production of poultry, eggs and meat for consumption and feed and pet food manufacturers.
