Get ready for the biggest Poultry trade show floor yet as the 2024 IPPE kicks off!

Get ready for the 2024 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), happening from January 30 to February 1 at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta, Georgia. This time around, the exhibition space has expanded to a whopping 600,800 square feet, taking up all four halls of the center and marking it as the biggest trade show floor in IPPE’s history. With over 1,295 exhibitors on board, attendees can expect a full week of educational programs, cutting-edge technology displays, interactive activities on the show floor, and ample networking opportunities with industry leaders in the animal food, meat, poultry, and egg sectors.

In addition to showcasing the latest tech, equipment, and services in the production and processing of animal food and related products, IPPE will leverage the expertise of the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), the US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), and the Meat Institute. They’ve lined up more than 80 hours of dynamic education sessions, focusing on current issues in the industry.

The organizers are thrilled with the expanded show floor and the high level of exhibitor participation, confidently stating, “This is going to be an exciting show that you won’t want to miss.”

During IPPE, the American Feed Industry Association will host a free Feed Education Program on January 31. This two-hour program is designed for animal food facility managers, operations staff, and mill personnel seeking insights into the latest regulatory requirements affecting their businesses. Gary Huddleston, the director of feed manufacturing and regulatory affairs at AFIA, emphasized that the program will keep industry stakeholders abreast of potential regulatory changes. It’s a valuable opportunity for those involved in manufacturing to stay informed about updates in the feed industry regulations.

The 2024 education program will cover topics such as preparing a written heat injury and illness plan for animal food manufacturing facilities, along with updates on regulatory requirements in the feed industry. Given the ongoing modernization of regulations by federal agencies like the Departments of Labor and Transportation, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Food and Drug Administration, and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), staying informed is crucial for industry professionals. The training session during IPPE aims to provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of recent changes and an opportunity to seek guidance on how to best comply with evolving regulations.

To add to the excitement, the event will also unveil the winner of the AFIA Feed Facility of the Year award in the commercial feed category. This award not only recognizes excellence in feed production but also highlights the industry’s dedication to quality and innovation. Get ready for a week of industry insights, technological advancements, and networking opportunities at IPPE 2024!
