The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association, North American Meat Institute and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY), is offering a wide range of services to international attendees.

With more than 25 percent of attendees coming from outside of the United States, IPPE is a proud partner with the U.S. Department of Commerce (Commerce) as a participant in the International Buyer Program. The program recruits thousands of qualified foreign buyers, sales representatives and business partners to U.S. trade shows each year. The Commerce’s Commercial Service will be ready to help attendees enhance their international trade efforts while at IPPE.


IPPE will offer buyer matching, conference rooms, translation services, import-export counseling and export directories in the International Business Center, located in the A/B Connector. There will be an Exporting 101 program for exhibitors that will focus on how U.S. companies can successfully expand sales into overseas markets, trends that impact international efforts and managing trade barriers. In addition, USPOULTRY is offering a “Seminario Avícola en Español” (Poultry Seminar in Spanish) education program that will address improvements in the areas of breeding, incubation, grow-out, egg production, processing and health. The program will be conducted entirely in Spanish

IPPE is expected to attract more than 30,000 attendees and is a collaboration of three trade shows – International Feed Expo, International Poultry Expo and International Meat Expo – representing the entire chain of protein production and processing.
