The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) has been selected to participate in the 2017 Department of Commerce’s International Buyer Program. The Expo has taken part in the International Buyer Program since 2007. The program brings trade delegations together from around the world and helps pair international attendees with American suppliers.

“We are pleased to be chosen as part of the International Buyer Program for the 10th year in a row. Program participation is confirmation of the global scale of our expo. Since 2006, our attendance from outside the U.S. has grown by almost 240 percent,” said IPPE show organizers. 

The 2017 IPPE has already surpassed 500,000 square feet of exhibit space and has secured more than 1,035 exhibitors with seven months remaining until the expo opens in January. Comprised of the three integrated trade shows – International Feed Expo, International Meat Expo and International Poultry Expo – IPPE will be from Jan. 31 to Feb. 2, 2017, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

The expo will highlight the latest technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of feed, meat and poultry products. Combining the expertise from AFIA, NAMI and USPOULTRY, IPPE will also feature dynamic education programs focused on current industry issues.
