As the largest pork-industry trade show and exhibition in the world, the expo draws some 30,000 pork producers, exhibitors and visitors from across the country and around the globe.

"World Pork Expo has been getting better and better every year," says Joy Philippi, National Pork Producers Council President and pork producer from Bruning, Neb. "We've added a new environmental information center as well as a job fair and career center. Pork producers and those in allied industry are finding that World Pork Expo has more to offer than ever."

"Returning this year is the World Pork Expo Farm Toy Collector Show and Sale featuring a limited edition World Pork Expo commemorative toy tractor," she adds.

World Pork Expo entertainment will be held Friday afternoon and evening, presented street dance-style on the Grand Concourse featuring the hit pop-turned-country act, Exile, and headliners, perennial favorites, the Grass Roots. "We're very much looking forward to yet another successful World Pork Expo!" Philippi says.
