IPPE launches ninth annual Young Leaders Under 30 program

September 2nd, 2020 – The International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) is launching the ninth annual IPPE Young Leaders Under 30 Program targeting young professionals who normally would not have the opportunity to attend IPPE.

The goal of the program is to engage and invest in the next generation of young professionals, between the ages of 21 and 29, who work for companies directly involved in the production and processing of poultry and meat or in the production of animal food.

Interested applicants must apply to the program by 16th October and meet select requirements, including being a member of at least one of the following IPPE sponsor organisations: the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), North American Meat Institute (NAMI) or US Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY).

No more than two applicants from a single member organisation may be nominated. A panel of industry professionals will review the applications, and award recipients will be notified of the panel’s decision by 30th October.

The application and details about the program can be found, HERE.

The program is designed to recognise professional leadership qualities and provide exposure to the world’s largest annual trade show involving the production and processing of meat and poultry products and the manufacture of animal food and pet food products. The program provides education to further training in each person’s respective industry and will expose the recipients to the latest technology used in the industry.

In addition to receiving free access to the Expo, selected recipients will receive IPPE-assigned complimentary hotel accommodations for two nights and admittance to all complimentary education programs. They will also be recognised at a special breakfast held on their behalf and gain leadership insights from a keynote speaker.

Attendee registration and general housing for the 2021 IPPE will open 26th October.
