Washington, DC  — Meat and poultry professionals seeking practical solutions, real world insights and proven “best practices” will benefit from the diverse education opportunities offered January 28-30, 2014, at the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) to be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia.

Sponsored by the American Meat Institute, the American Feed Industry Association and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, IPPE is the premier U.S. trade show featuring the latest in equipment and supplies for processing and packaging red meat and poultry products, as well as the production of feed products. The show features three world class partners - International Meat Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Feed Expo - collaborating to create the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), representing the entire chain of protein production and processing.  Exhibits are open on January 28-30, 2014, to complement this full week of workshops.

“This partnership has resulted in the world’s premier, annual tradeshow focused on the meat, poultry and feed industries,” said AMI President J. Patrick Boyle.  “With more than 1,100 exhibitors displaying the latest technology, equipment and supplies on more than 400,000 square feet of space, IPPE will again be one of the 50 largest shows in North America next year.” 

IPPE’s educational programming will cover a wide array of food safety, consumer trends and operations management issues.  In addition, selected sessions will be available for translation into Spanish and Portuguese and will cover global food safety and export issues.

Attendees also will benefit from other learning opportunities offered by IPPE partners.  These include sessions covering international pork topics, feed production and poultry market intelligence.

In addition to these complimentary education sessions, a variety of workshops and conferences will be offered for an additional fee.  They include conferences on sanitary equipment design principles, an antibiotics workshop, media training for the meat and poultry industry, a meat and poultry research showcase, a fall protection short course, and meat and poultry plant tours.
