ATLANTA, GEORGIA, U.S. — The Super Bowl is coming to Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., in 2019, as a result, the show dates for the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will be moved to Feb. 12 – 14, 2019. IPPE will continue to be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta and all IPPE contracted hotels will still be available as normal.
“We realize the change in dates is unusual,” said IPPE show organizers. “Many resources are tied up by the NFL in the host city of the Super Bowl, which resulted in the move from our traditional show dates of the fourth week of January. With the Super Bowl scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 3, we worked with the city of Atlanta to find the best possible dates to host the 2019 IPPE without disruption of services normally provided during the week of the trade show.”
IPPE will continue its Tuesday through Thursday format for the exhibitor floor, with industry meetings and educational programs scheduled Monday through Friday.
The 2018 IPPE will be held Jan. 30 – Feb. 1, 2018, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. Future IPPE show dates beyond 2019 are reserved for the traditional last week in January. For more information about IPPE, click here.
