With five months remaining until the show, the 2016 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) has surpassed 1,040 exhibitors and secured more than 430,000 net square feet of exhibit space.

“We are seeing an increase in the number of exhibitors, as compared to last year at this time, and are pleased with the level of exhibitor participation,” said Charlie Olentine, IPPE show manager. “We anticipate more than 28,000 attendees at the 2016 IPPE, with the expo providing an excellent location to learn about new products and services for the protein and feed industries.

Sponsored by the US Poultry & Egg Association, the American Feed Industry Association and the North American Meat Institute, the annual show is scheduled for Jan. 26-28, 2016 at the Georgia World Congress Center. The expo is comprised of three co-located trade shows—International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo and International Meat Expo—that represent the entire chain of protein and feed production and processing.

The expo will highlight the latest technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of meat, poultry and animal feed in addition to dynamic educational programs that address current industry issues. The 2016 IPPE will also feature several new educational programs including important sessions on food safety, consumer trends and international trade.
