ATLANTA — The Super Bowl is coming to Atlanta in 2019. As a result, the show dates for the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will be moved to Feb. 12-14, 2019. IPPE will continue to be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga., and all IPPE contracted hotels will still be available as normal.
“We realize the change in dates is unusual. Many resources are tied up by the NFL in the host city of the Super Bowl, which resulted in the move from our traditional show dates of the fourth week of January. With the Super Bowl scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 3, we worked with the city of Atlanta to find the best possible dates to host the 2019 IPPE without disruption of services normally provided during the week of the trade show.”
“We are continuing to stay with our Tuesday through Thursday format for the exhibitor floor, with industry meetings and educational programs scheduled Monday through Friday. IPPE has turned into a week-long event, and we appreciate the support that all industries provide in sending attendees to our annual trade show,” said IPPE show organizers.
The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) is a collaboration of three shows — International Feed Expo, International Meat Expo and the International Poultry Expo — representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), North American Meat Institute (NAMI) and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY).
The 2018 IPPE will be held Jan. 30-Feb. 1, 2018, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Future IPPE show dates beyond 2019 are reserved for the traditional last week in January. More information about IPPE is available at www.ippexpo.org.
