TUCKER, GEORGIA, U.S. – The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) keeps growing each year, and now it’s being recognized for that accomplishment.
IPPE has been named one of the Top 25 fastest growing trade shows in net square footage by Trade Show News Network (TSNN). The shows in the Top 25 were recognized for growth from 2014 to 2016. IPPE, which is jointly sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), US Poultry & Egg Association, and the North American Meat Institute, will be honored at the ninth annual TSNN Awards to be held Aug. 21-23, in New Orleans, Louisiana, U.S.
“IPPE is honored to be recognized for its growth,” said IPPE show organizers. “We have seen a 15% growth in net square feet from 2014 to 2016, and this could not have been achieved without the commitment of a great supplier community who appreciates smart collaborations between the right industries. Bringing three strong industries together allows all of our members and the industry at large to see the equipment, supplies and innovative solutions for their businesses in one combined event.”
The 2018 IPPE trade show will take place Jan. 30 – Feb. 1 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S. The 2018 Expo is expected to exceed 500,000 net sq. ft. with more than 30,000 attendees and 1,200 exhibitors.
The 2017 show attracted 31,649 feed, poultry, meat industry leaders from around the world. This was a new show record. There were also 1,273 exhibitors with more than 533,000 sq. ft. of exhibit space, another show record.
