Attendees of the upcoming 2014 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will have an opportunity to explore two new interactive exhibits: The Smithsonian's Animal Connections: Our Journey Together mobile exhibit and the Drive to Feed Chew on This mobile exhibit. Both exhibits will be on the show floor in Hall B at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, USA, throughout the show, January 28 - 30, 2014.
The Smithsonian's Animal Connections: Our Journey Together mobile exhibit was created to mark the 150th anniversary of the American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) and will introduce IPPE attendees to the complex bond between humans and animals. The exhibit uses a combination of interactive learning stations, films and touch-screen videos, and 3-D settings to explore topics about animals in the home, on the farm, in the wild, at the zoo and in the veterinary clinic.
The Drive to Feed Chew on This mobile exhibit was created to heighten awareness about one of the biggest problems facing our world today - hunger. The exhibit allows attendees to walk through and view information on hunger, sustainability and food facts.
