The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) continues to evolve and grow to meet the needs of its attendees and exhibitors, creating new experiences, delivering innovative technology and meeting the learning goals of the poultry, meat and animal food industries.

IPPE will welcome a global audience Jan. 24-26, 2023, in Atlanta, Georgia, to showcase the newest solutions, technologies, research, processes, services and products that the global animal food and protein industries haveto offer.

As the annual flagship event for the meat, poultry and feed industries, IPPE offers the largest variety of education and interactive exhibits for everyone from feed to fork. Attendees include representatives from all over the world including operation and plant managers, purchasing agents, engineers, and researchers from the world's top feed, meat processing and packing and poultry companies. A wide range of international decision-makers attend this annual event to network and become informed on the latest technological developments and issues facing the industry.

IPPE is a collaboration of three integrated trade shows — International Feed Expo, International Meat Expo and the International Poultry Expo — representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), North American Meat Institute (NAMI) and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY).

With an anticipated 500,000-plus square feet of exhibits showcasing the newest and most innovative products and services for the poultry and egg, meat and animal food industries, IPPE 2023 is expected to bring thousands of industry leaders from more than 110 countries.

This year, IPPE will feature more than 80 hours of educational workshops to meet your learning goals. Featured will be some of the programs you have come to expect each year, such as the International Poultry Scientific Forum (IPSF), Latin American Poultry Summit (LAPS), Pet Food Conference and the International Rendering Symposium. The 2023 IPPE will also include new educational programs, including the Foreign Material Prevention & Control Workshop. A complete schedule of programs is available at and in the WATT IPPE Directory, available digitally in November and in print at the show.

In addition to the free and paid educational program, TECHTalk theaters on the expo floor in both building B and building C will again be the stage for exhibitors to present technical talks on a variety of topics, from sustainability to process efficiencies to technology. Plus, a new product showcase that includes exhibitor video submissions on the newest technology or services will be on display in the BC-Hall.

Also in 2023, the International Poultry Expo is celebrating 75 years of trade show excellence to the poultry and egg industries. Sponsored by USPOULTRY, the first poultry convention was attended by 200 poultry leaders in Atlanta in 1948, with suppliers exhibiting in the halls of the convention hotel in the early years. From there, the event began its run of steadily growing and expanding year-after-year to become what is today’s annual International Poultry Expo.
