The goal of the programme is to engage and invest in the next generation of young professionals, between the ages of 21 and 29, who work for companies directly involved in the production and processing of poultry and meat or in the production of animal or poultry feed.

Interested applicants must apply to the programme by 30 September, and meet select requirements, including being a member of at least one of the following IPPE sponsors: American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), North American Meat Institute (NAMI) or US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY).

No more than two applicants from a single member organization may be nominated. A panel of industry professionals will review the applications, and award recipients will be notified of the panel’s decision by 16 October. The application and details about the programme can be found by clicking here or at www.ippexpo.org.

The programme is designed to recognize professional leadership qualities and to provide exposure to the world’s largest annual trade show involving the production and processing of meat and poultry products and the manufacture of feed and pet food products. The programme provides education to further training in each person’s respective industry and will expose the recipients to the latest technology used in the industry.

In addition to receiving free access to the Expo, selected recipients will receive complimentary hotel accommodations for two nights. They will also receive admittance to all complimentary education programmes and one paid programme.

The 2018 IPPE will be held in Atlanta, Georgia, from 30 January – 1 February 2018. Also, save the date for the 2019 IPPE. With the Super Bowl coming to Atlanta in 2019, the IPPE show dates have been moved to 12 - 14 February 2019. Mark your calendar to note this change in the IPPE trade show schedule for 2019 only.
