The U.S. Poultry and Egg Association (USPOULTRY), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the American Meat Institute (AMI) announced that the Southeastern Meat Association (SEMA) will exhibit at the 2015 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE). As part of this first-ever cooperation, SEMA will receive exhibit floor space to promote the organization and unveil new marketing materials.
“The board of SEMA is excited to be a part of the largest meat event in North America,” said Anna Ondick, president and CEO of SEMA. “We encourage our members to take advantage of the education programs and exhibits they cannot get at any other exposition in 2015.”
“The support of SEMA is critical to demonstrating the broad support we have from all key groups in the meat industry,” said Anne Halal, AMI’s vice president of exposition and education services. “We are thrilled to have their promotional support and participation in the IPPE.”
SEMA’s cooperation adds to the already strong support IPPE has received from member companies, industry organizations, publications and tradeshows. Currently, the American Meat Science Association (AMSA) and the North American Meat Association (NAMA) are integrally involved in the development of education programs to attract members to the IPPE conference. Maple Leaf Foods and Cargill are planning business meetings to coincide with IPPE.
The global annual poultry, feed and meat industry trade show will be held Tuesday through Thursday, January 27-29, 2015, at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia. The Expo will highlight the latest technology, equipment and services used in the production and processing of feed, meat and poultry products. IPPE will also feature dynamic education programs addressing current industry issues. For more information about the 2015 IPPE, visit www.ippexpo.org.
