The 2013 International Production & Processing Expo—the exciting new collaboration resulting from the co-location of the International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo, and the International Meat Expo—will bring together more than 1,100 exhibitors and an anticipated 25,000 attendees from over 100 countries to the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta from January 29-31, 2013.

The 2013 Expo will also mark the International Poultry Expo’s 65th year of continual exhibition services to the poultry industry.
