TUCKER, GEORGIA, U.S. — The 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) is expected to exceed 450,000 net square feet with more than 28,000 attendees and 1,200 exhibitors. To accommodate this increase, IPPE has expanded into C-Hall of the Georgia World Congress Center. This expansion will allow the show to accommodate demand for additional space needed by new and existing exhibitors.
"Close to eighty percent of the show floor has already been booked, with 10 months remaining until the IPPE show in January. The need for additional space to accommodate the growth we are seeing was paramount in our decision to expand into C-Hall,” said Charlie Olentine, IPPE show manager.
IPPE is the world's largest annual poultry, feed and meat industry event of its kind and ranked 38th in Trade Show News Network’s 2013 Top 250 US Trade Shows. The event is sponsored by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the American Meat Institute (AMI).
IPPE will be held Tuesday through Thursday, Jan. 27-29, 2015, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga. The expo will highlight the latest technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of poultry, meat and feed products. IPPE will also feature dynamic education programs addressing current industry issues. Show updates and attendee and exhibitor information are available at www.ippexpo.org.
