International Production & Processing Expo Selected As Name for New USPOULTRY, AFIA & AMI Co-Located Tradeshow. To register or for more information: www.ipe13.org
The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will serve as the umbrella name for the new U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), and American Meat Institute (AMI) 2013 Expo in Atlanta. The new show is the result of the co-location of the International Poultry Expo (IPE), International Feed Expo (IFE), and AMI’s International Meat Expo (IME).
The three shows will operate under one structure, creating one of the 50 largest tradeshows in the United States. The entire tradeshow is expected to include more than 1,000 exhibitors and close to 400,000 net square feet of exhibit space.
All three associations will continue to operate independently, serving their respective constituents and will offer targeted education and networking opportunities that meet the customer needs and compliment the Expo. AMI’s existing priority system will be equitably worked into the tenure seniority system for exhibitors at IPPE. This will facilitate placement of exhibitors on the show floor, as well as assist in prioritizing hotel seniority, a key benefit of the seniority system to secure hotels most convenient to the Georgia World Congress Center.
The show hours for the 2013 International Production & Processing Expo are as follows. There will be a reception on the show floor from 4-6 p.m. on Tuesday, January 29. The addition of AMI will complement and further enhance the strong education programs planned for the week of IPPE. An announcement of the anticipated educational programs will be released in June.

Wednesday, January 30, 2013: 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.
Thursday, January 31, 2013: 9 a.m. – 3 p.m.
