US - The 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) has been named one of 24 companies nationwide to participate in the Department of Commerce’s International Buyer Programme.
The Expo has participated in the International Buyer Programme since 2007. The programme brings trade delegations together from around the world and helps match international attendees with American suppliers.
"We are very pleased to be chosen as part of the International Buyer Programme for the eighth year in a row. Participation in the programme is a testament to the global scope of our trade show. Since 2006, our attendance from outside the US has grown by 79 per cent," stated Charlie Olentine, IPPE show manager.
IPPE has surpassed 440,000 net square feet of exhibit space and is on target to reach its goal of 450,000-plus net square feet. Comprised of the three integrated tradeshows – International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo and International Meat Expo – the 2015 IPPE has secured more than 900 exhibitors as of the beginning of July and is on pace to have 1,200 exhibitors by January.
The global annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show will be held Tuesday through Thursday, 27-29 January 2015, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Expo will highlight the latest technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of feed, meat and poultry products. IPPE will also feature dynamic education programmes addressing current industry issues, combining the expertise from AFIA, AMI and USPOULTRY.
