2015 IPPE exceeds 435,000 square feet of exhibit space
The 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), slated for January 27-29, 2015, has already surpassed 435,000 net square feet of exhibit space and is on target to reach its goal of 450,000-plus net square feet. Comprised of the three integrated tradeshows – International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo and International Meat Expo – the 2015 IPPE has secured more than 890 exhibitors as of the beginning of June and is on pace to have 1,200 exhibitors by January.
“More than 80 percent of the show floor has already been booked, and this includes our expansion into Building C. The 2015 IPPE will offer an excellent location for businesses to collaborate, network, learn about new products and services, and discuss and resolve common issues facing industries represented at the show. We anticipate more than 28,000 attendees, and the merger of [American Meat Institute] and [North American Meat Association] creates a new dynamic which should further increase our attendance,” stated Charlie Olentine, IPPE show manager.
The global annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. The expo will highlight the latest technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of feed, meat and poultry products. IPPE will also feature dynamic education programs addressing current industry issues, combining the expertise from the American Feed Industry Association, AMI and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association.
