The International Poultry Expo is the networking hub of the world for the poultry industry! Every segment of the poultry and egg industry is represented: feed milling, live production, hatchery, processing, further processing, packaging, commercial egg, marketing, and all support activities.


The 2007 IPE promises to be even bigger and better than 2006 with the addition of the new Feed Expo section being co-sponsored by the American Feed Industry Association and the IPE. With AFIA coming on board with its co-location of the Expo, we anticipate the show will grow by an additional 100 exhibitors and attendance of over 20,000.


Funds earned at the International Poultry Expo are funneled back into the industry in the form of research grants, educational programs, and promotional activities. Exhibitors play a vital role in supporting not only the expo, but also the U.S. Poultry and Egg Association and ultimately the total industry. The USPOULTRY board of directors encourages poultry and egg company representatives to support the firms that support the exposition, including making business appointments during the show only with exhibiting companies.

At the 2006 expo, 820 exhibitors filled more than 16 acres of display area in the Georgia World Congress Center with every conceivable product and service used by these industry groups.
