Combined trade show expected to grow as American Meat Institute and North American Meat Association complete merger
With five months remaining until the 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), the trade show has surpassed 450,000 net square feet of exhibit space. Comprised of the three integrated trade shows – International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo and International Meat Expo – the 2015 IPPE has also secured more than 1,000 exhibitors and is on pace to have 1,200 exhibitors by January.
“More than 85 percent of the show floor has been booked, including our expansion into Building C. We anticipate more than 28,000 attendees at the 2015 IPPE, with the Expo providing an excellent location to learn about new products and services and for businesses to collaborate and attendees to network. The 2015 IPPE will also benefit from an expanded audience as AMI and the North American Meat Association (NAMA) complete their merger,” stated Charlie Olentine, IPPE show manager.
“NAMA members are excited to be a part of IPPE moving forward,” said Barry Carpenter, NAMA president and CEO. “Their presence will bring increased value to all the show’s exhibitors, as they look to find the latest technology, equipment and services in the industry.”
The global annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show will be held Tuesday through Thursday, January 27-29, 2015, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. 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 AFIA, AMI and USPOULTRY.
