AFIA to sponsor 13 feed-related events in 2014

Additional programs expected to be added

The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) will sponsor 13 feed-related events in 2014. The meetings will kick off in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, with the International Production & Procession Expo (IPPE), co-hosted with the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and American Meat Institute, and end in Palm Springs, California, USA, at AFIA's annual Equipment Manufacturers Conference.

Some meetings to be held in 2014 will be co-sponsored by Kansas State University (KSU) as part of an on-site program developed in 1976 between the association and the university. A second partnership between AFIA and FAMI-QS will provide an Awareness in Feed Safety program.

"AFIA events provide members and industry representatives with knowledge on topics that they may not be able to easily access anywhere else," said Veronica Rovelli, AFIA director of meetings and events. "We spend countless hours planning conferences that attendees will find worthwhile and want to return to year after year. It is exciting to kick off another strong programming year full of networking and learning opportunities for the industry."

AFIA also expects to add programs in 2014 to address the needs of members around the area of Food Safety Modernization Act implementation and the biannual Import & Export Seminar.
