TUCKER, GEORGIA, U.S. — The 2019 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will have the largest trade show floor ever in the event’s history.

With eight months to go before the show, IPPE already has surpassed 560,000 square feet of exhibit space and has more than 1,100 exhibitors.

IPPE is the world’s largest annual feed, meat and poultry trade show of its kind and is one of the 50 largest trade shows in the United States. IPPE is sponsored by the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the North American Meat Institute (NAMI).

“Ninety-two per cent of the show floor has been booked,” the show’s organizers said. “We are pleased that our decision to go to all three halls of the Georgia World Congress Center has been beneficial in accommodating the increased demand for additional space needed for new and existing exhibitors.”

Due to the Super Bowl being in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., the IPPE will be later than years past.

The 2019 IPPE will provide attendees with a full week of education programs, technology, events on the show floor and networking opportunities with key leaders from the feed, meat and poultry industry.

The trade show floor will showcase the current technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of feed, meat and poultry products.

Combining the expertise from AFIA, NAMI and USPOULTRY, IPPE also will feature more than 140 hours of dynamic education sessions focused on the latest industry issues, organizers said.

Attendee registration and housing will open Sept. 17. For more information about IPPE and to see a complete list of exhibiting companies, visit www.ippexpo.org.
