Registration and hotel reservations for attendees to PEAK 2023–formerly called the Midwest Poultry Federation Convention–will open Tuesday, November 8, 2022 at

Earlier this summer, the Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) board of directors announced that after 51 fabulous years known as the Midwest show, the MPF Convention is changing its name to PEAK.

“We’re excited to debut our new name and branding at PEAK 2023,” said current MPF Board President Ross Thoreson of Best Veterinary Solutions. “Attendees will still find the same great focus on education and exhibits intended to increase producers’ profitability and connect the poultry industry in North America.”

Show dates are April 11-13, 2023 at the Minneapolis Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As you make your plans to attend the nation’s largest trade show and convention in North America focused exclusively on the business and food production of poultry, here are the general schedule details for 2023: The Pre-Show Nutrition and Poultry Health Symposium will be held Tuesday afternoon, April 11.

  1. Education tracks for turkeys, egg layers and broilers (all species) will take place across all three days of the show (April 11-13).
  2. Watch for a new “Business Track” focused on leadership development and focusing on the success of your employees and your business.
  3. The Welcome Reception and PEAK Unhatched: An Evening of Eats and Entertainment will combine to offer a huge opening night at PEAK – Tuesday, April 11 starting at 5:30 pm.
  4. We continue to expand our Exhibit Hall, which will run 10am-5pm on Wednesday, April 12 and 9am–12pm on Thursday, April 13.
