The 2012 World Pork Expo attracted nearly 20,000 pork producers and industry leaders from 38 countries to Des Moines, Iowa, for the world’s largest pork-specific trade show.
The three-day (held June 6–8), National Pork Producers Council-sponsored event included industry seminars and a tradeshow with more than 400 exhibitors. “People attending World Pork Expo this year were some of the most analytical and conscientious producers I’ve met, and they are serious about the industry,” said R.C. Hunt, council president. “They appreciated hearing about what’s happening with pork production. And, we all found it exciting to see new innovations, designs and engineering that help us raise our animals responsibly wherever we farm.”
The expo set records for the number of pigs in the Junior National show and the quantity of meals served at the Big Grill, and featured the creation of the world’s largest pork burger during its well-attended MusicFest.
The 2013 World Pork Expo, which will celebrate the events 25th anniversary, will take place June 5–7, 2013, at the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Iowa.
