7 April 2011, at 11:42pm

US - Dates and times for the 2012 International Poultry Expo (IPE) will be different from previous years to allow more time for educational programmes.


The 2012 International Poultry Expo, co-located with the International Feed Expo, is moving to a Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday format with the following show hours:

  • Tuesday 24 January 2012: 12:00 – 17:00
  • Wednesday 25 January 2012: 09:00 – 17:00
  • Thursday 26 January 2012: 09:00 – 15:00

The entire week in which the International Poultry Expo will be held has been officially designated as 'IPE Week', with an emphasis on educational programmes rounding out the week-long event. With the Expo starting at noon on Tuesday, the shift will help allow an increase in the amount of education programmes available at the front and back end of the Expo.

John Starkey, president of US Poultry & Egg Association, commented: "Our long-standing International Poultry Scientific Forum, Pet Food Conference, Animal Agriculture Sustainability Summit, and USPoultry Education Programs are an important part of IPE and provide people with an additional purpose for attending the Expo.

"We are working on a tentative schedule of conferences for 2012 to include several new programmes designed to provide our attendees and exhibitors with the most up-to-date, relevant information concerning the poultry and feed industry. IPE Week gives us an opportunity to provide additional education programs, something we have not been able to do in the past."
