TUCKER, GEORGIA, US — The Trade Show Executive recognized the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) for its recent growth over the past few years.

More specifically, IPPE was listed on the Gold 100 shows list, ranked by net square feet of exhibit space for 2019. IPPE came in at No. 21 on the listing, up from No. 31 in 2018.

IPPE 2019 featured 1,420-plus exhibitors with more than 600,000 square feet of exhibit space.

It also was featured on the Fastest 50 list, ranked by percentage of growth in net square feet, for which IPPE came in at No. 26.

IPPE is sponsored by the US Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association and the North American Meat Institute.

“IPPE’s recognition by Trade Show Executive is wonderful news, and we are honored to be acknowledged for the IPPE’s growth,” the show organizers said. “This recognition is indicative of the synergies gained from our combined efforts and even more so from the commitment of our loyal exhibitors, attendees and members from around the world. We are excited about the upcoming 2022 IPPE and are looking forward to an in-person trade show.”

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, IPPE launched a digital platform in place of its annual in-person event for 2021. But the organizers are planning to host IPPE 2022, Jan. 25-27, 2022, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, US.
