2016 IPPE Offering Free Bus Service25 November 2015
US - Free bus service will be available for the upcoming 2016 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE).
Company employees and contract producers of companies actively involved in the production and processing of poultry and meat or the production of animal/poultry feed, who are also members of the US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and North American Meat Institute (NAMI) and sponsors of IPPE, are eligible to participate.
Complimentary registration for IPPE will be provided through the Members to Atlanta (M2A) Program. Buses will pick up employees and growers at a location selected by the company, travel to the Expo and return the same afternoon. There is no cost to the company or the individuals. Last year, more than 340 people from 12 poultry complexes in Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee took advantage of the bus program. The program is available to any location within an approximate three-hour drive from Atlanta.
“We strongly encourage company managers to take advantage of the free IPPE bus program,” said IPPE show organizers. “The bus program makes it very convenient for their employees and growers to attend the Expo at no cost. This is an excellent opportunity to see the newest technology used in poultry, meat and feed production and processing. Nowhere else is it possible to view the range of equipment, supplies and services used in all segments of our industries. It is also a unique and economical way of recognizing employees and acknowledging the role of producers.”
IPPE is expected to attract more than 28,000 attendees and is a collaboration of three trade shows—International Feed Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Meat Expo—representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. More information about IPPE, including registration details, lodging and education offerings, is available at www.ippexpo.org.
