IPPE celebrates 75 years of work in the poultry industry
The International Poultry Expo (IPPE) is celebrating 75 years of continuous work for the poultry industry.
The International Poultry Expo (IPPE) is celebrating 75 years of involvement in poultry industry trade shows. The first major event in the poultry industry was sponsored by the US. Poultry and Egg Association of the United States (USPOULTRY) was in 1948 in Atlanta.
This initial event was attended by close to 200 national and global poultry industry leaders and businessmen, as well as suppliers and professionals who conducted activities at the hotel where the event was held each year.
This first convention of the poultry sector continued to grow over the years and became stronger, becoming today a reference for the agricultural industry called the International Poultry Expo (IPE, originally IPE).
In the first versions of this fair, a permanent objective was to recognize the importance of continuing education and to highlight technological advances in the poultry production field. Thus, the so-called International Poultry Exposition currently brings together the best-qualified leaders, entrepreneurs, and professionals, who present the latest technologies, innovative equipment, supplies, and services focused on the poultry industry.
This poultry trade show has quickly become the largest in the United States and one of the most important in the world. It addresses topics related to broiler, egg, and turkey production.

Formation of today’s IPPE
In recent decades, other major U.S. poultry associations have joined the show to continue to grow.
In 2007, the American Feed Industry Association merged its flagship event called the International Feed Expo with the IPE to join forces.
Then, in 2013, the International Meat Expo, which belongs to the North American Meat Institute, joined the fair.
Thus, the union of these three poultry sector fairs has given rise to the current International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), one of the largest events in the United States and the world.
In recent versions, IPPE has allocated 500,000 square feet for exhibits and the exchange of poultry products and services. For IPPE 2023, thousands of poultry leaders from 110 countries are expected to attend.
Finally, in 2022 IPPE is celebrating 75 years of operating and organizing poultry trade shows since its founding in 1947. Throughout these decades it has supported hundreds of producers, entrepreneurs, leaders, professionals, and organizations in the North American and world poultry industry.
