ATLANTA — The 2023 International Production and Processing Expo has been a successful trade show with strong crowds, busy exhibitors and great energy evident throughout the trade show floor, organizers noted.
This year, IPPE had approximately 28,000 attendees, 533,000 square feet of exhibit space and 1,180-plus exhibitors. Attendee numbers will be released after the registration database has been audited for duplications. Sponsored by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association and the North American Meat Institute, IPPE is the world’s largest annual poultry and egg, meat and animal food industry event of its kind.
“We are really pleased with the enthusiasm displayed by this year’s attendees and exhibitors and their excitement in connecting with their colleagues from around the world,” the three organizations said. “The attendee and exhibitor numbers and trade show floor continue to complement IPPE’s unparalleled education sessions, invaluable networking opportunities and extensive exhibits highlighting the latest innovative technology, equipment and services for our industries.”
The large trade show floor remains the central attraction. Numerous companies are showcasing their new products at IPPE, with all phases of the animal food, meat, and poultry and egg industries represented, from live production and processing to further processing and packaging.
The comprehensive education program schedule complements the exhibits by informing industry management about the newest issues affecting the industries. The 2023 line-up includes more than 80 hours of education sessions, ranging from animal agriculture sustainability to biosecurity as it pertains to foreign animal disease, to facility inspection package training.
Other featured events include the International Poultry Scientific Forum, the Latin American Poultry Summit, Pet Food Conference, Foreign Material Prevention & Control Workshop, TECHTalks program, New Product Showcase and publisher-sponsored programs, all of which have been great contributions to the 2023 IPPE.
