International Meat Expo to Feature Comprehensive Education Program

Meat and poultry professionals seeking practical solutions, real world insights and proven best practices will benefit from the diverse education opportunities offered January 28 to February 1, 2013 at the International Meat Expo (IME) to be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta.

Sponsored by the American Meat Institute, IME features the latest in equipment and supplies for processing and packaging red meat products. Formerly known as the International Meat, Poultry and Seafood Industry Convention and Expo, in 2013 the show features two world class partners, the International Poultry Expo and the International Feed Expo, collaborating to create the International Production and Processing Expo (IPPE).  Exhibits are open on January 29-31, 2013 to complement this full week of workshops.

IME’s educational programming  will cover a wide array of consumer trends and operations management issues.  In addition, selected sessions will be available for translation into Spanish and Portuguese and will cover the economics of the meat industry, global food safety issues and risk communication.

Attendees also will benefit from other learning opportunities offered by IPPE partners. These include sessions covering feed production and poultry market intelligence.

In addition to these complimentary education sessions, a variety of workshops and conferences will be offered for an additional fee.  They include conferences on poultry handling and welfare, a conference on current antibiotic issues facing the poultry and egg industry,  an international rendering symposium, a seminar on the future of the egg industry, a hands-on media training workshop, and a meat and poultry scientific research conference.
