February 6, 2013 – HUNTSVILLE, Ala. – As the International Poultry Expo (IPE) celebrated 65 years of trade show service to the poultry and egg industry this year, Aviagen also was recognized for its 60 years of exhibiting at the annual show. On Tuesday, January 28, 2013, Aviagen CEO Randall Ennis accepted an award from the US Poultry & Egg Association for the company’s 60 years of participation at the industry event which has grown significantly in attendance, exhibit space, and international representation since its beginning back in 1948 at the Ansley Hotel with 200 poultry men in attendance. The 2013 IPPE was expected to have in excess of 25,000 visitors and 1,100 exhibitors as well as 21-plus acres of exhibit space. Today the show is an international industry event that draws approximately 20 percent of its attendees from more than 100 different countries.
“As a legacy exhibitor, Aviagen recognizes the International Poultry Expo as an important event for Aviagen and the poultry industry at large. The show represents a unique opportunity for our executive, R&D, and sales teams to collectively meet with our customers from around the world to understand their individual market needs, issues, and direction, and how our three product brands – Ross, Arbor Acres, and Indian River – are well-positioned to meet the demands of today as well as into the future,” said Ennis.
