FEATURE Title Attendance surges at IPE/IFE A fter experiencing a slight dropoff in attendance the last couple of years, the International Poultry Expo and International Feed Expo (IPE/IFE) once again drew over 20,000 members of the poultry and feed industries from around the world. The 2011 IPE/IFE, which was held Jan. 25-28 at the World Congress Center in Atlanta, Georgia, U.S., also had more than 900 exhibitors, almost a 12% increase from last year. Sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association and the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), the annual Expo is the world’s largest poultry and feed industry event of its kind. The IFE portion of the event featured a series of speakers and educational programs, and feed industry suppliers displayed their latest products and technologies during the Expo. AFIA’s booth this year emphasized the Safe Feed/Safe Food Certification Program, the Institute for Feed Education & Research and AFIA’s representation of the pet food industry. “This year’s Expo offered attendees a range of substantive programming and events to make their time in Atlanta as by Arvin Donley More than 20,000 attendees from 100 countries gather in Atlanta to focus on issues affecting the feed and poultry industries compelling as possible, on top of the hundreds of exhibits on the show floor,” said Joel G. Newman, AFIA president and chief executive officer. Conference attendees received regulatory and legislative updates from industry leaders and key federal decision-makers as well as gained knowledge and insight during the Expo and related educational programs. EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS The International Education Forum addressed topics imperative to feed manufacturers and related industries.
