AMI is extending the deadline for proposals to deliver Meat Tech presentations during the AMI Meat, Poultry & Seafood Industry Convention and Exposition, May 1-3, 2012, at the Dallas Convention Center in Dallas, Texas. Proposals may be submitted until February 17.

These exhibitor generated presentations were a great success in 2011, creating a buzz on the floor and providing exhibiting companies and their customers additional opportunities for education, networking and discussion regarding specific topics. Technical, non-sales session descriptions are submitted by exhibiting suppliers, reviewed by AMI members and technical staff and presented by the scientific and technical experts from the exhibiting companies. Presentations are selected on technical merit and on a first come first served basis.

The 20-minute sessions will be held on the show floor, during show hours, not conflicting with the education sessions provided by AMI. This allows more visibility for attendees and exhibitors.

Specific papers will be presented in the following categories:

Other topics outside of this scope will also be considered, but should focus on the technical merit of new or improved technologies or services.

For additional information and an application, click here: Meat Tech Info and Application. These sessions are at no extra cost to the exhibitors or attendees. If you have questions, comments or concerns or to submit your application, please contact Jessica Mosley at 202-587-4252 or jmosley@meatinstitute.org.

Need to become an exhibitor first? Contact Allison Konczyk at 202-587-4233 orakonczyk@meatinstitute.org for additional info regarding your participation as an exhibitor on the AMI Expo floor.

The AMI Expo will be co-located with FMI2012, sponsored by Food Marketing Institute (FMI), the U.S. Food Export Showcase sponsored by the National Association of State Departments of Agriculture (NASDA) and United Fresh 2012, sponsored by United Fresh Produce Association (UFPA). Attendees at the AMI Expo will have access to over 1,200 exhibitors focused on processing and packaging equipment and supplies, plus produce and retailer focused exhibits. The registration fee will also include a full schedule of education programming and networking opportunities.
