Attendee and exhibitor pre-registration and hotel registration for the 2014 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) is now open. The show will be held Tuesday-Thursday, January 28-30, 2014, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA.
IPPE is expected to attract more than 26,000 attendees and is a collaboration of three shows - International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo and International Meat Expo. The event is sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the American Meat Institute (AMI).
Those interested can pre-register for a discounted price of US$50 through December 31. After December 31, the registration fee is US$70. IPPE's website provides information on registration for exhibitors and attendees, hotel registration and a schedule of 2014 educational seminars. New educational programs will be offered, including sessions on food safety, consumer trends and international trade.
The 2014 show will again offer the "Members to Atlanta" program, which waives the pre-registration fee through December 31 for attendees from member firms of all three associations engaged in the production of poultry, eggs and meat for consumption, and feed and petfood manufacturers.
New shelter data casts doubt on whether the pet population and pet ownership are truly growing.
While the pandemic caused unprecedented suffering worldwide in 2020, the disruptions to dogs, cats and other pets adoption numbers may normalize in 2021.
