IPPE 2014 – Day 1

The lights that burnt late into the night have been extinguished, workers have retired after completing a gruelling marathon of tasks and dawn has broken over Atlanta city in the USA: all is ready for the opening of the world’s largest feed, poultry and meat exposition, IPPE 2014. It opened today at 15:00 GMT/10am local time.

The 'Eye' in Atlanta

The ‘Eye’ in Atlanta

Over 25,000 visitors are expected to pass through the halls of the Georgia World Congress Centre, right at the heart of the Olympic Park in downtown Atlanta, over the next three days and where a new rotating ‘eye’ overlooks the venue.

Meetings by various groups – including the International Feed Industry Federation’s ‘Feed Regulators Meeting’ – have already taken place and more are to come, co-ordinated to maximise their impact by aliening themselves with this major event.

For example, the holders of the Dutch VIV intensive livestock production exposition organisers, VNU, is hosting an ‘International Pork Production Summit 2014 USA is being hosted on January 29, 2014 right in the heart of this poultry event.

Many individual companies exhibiting at IPPE, such as AB Vista which held its reception in the Omni Hotel to welcome national and international customers to Atlanta, hosted events.

Atlanta in January is a major destination  for the Latin poultry sector as well as its feed interests. With the addition of the American Meat Institutes (AMI), the venue has widened it’s appeal and is of even more interest to other farmed species including fish!

Individual companies, such as AB Vista‘s reception in the Omni Hotel to welcome national and international customers to Atlanta.

In 2013, more than 26,000 trade visitors from over 110 countries came to Atlanta, Georgia, to see the range of products and services offered by over 1180 exhibitors. There were 5448 international visitors represented at the expo, and the largest group from a single country outside the United States was Canada. The largest region represented was Latin America / Caribbean

AB Vista at IPPE 2014 – Richard Cooper hosts a special evening in Atlanta

AB Vista

Richard Cooper – AB Vista

International Milling Directory member company, AB Vista, held a cocktail reception for researchers, business partners and more. The International Milling Directory’s Lee and Darren were invited to attend this event on the eve of IPPE 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia, United States of America.

 

Richard Cooper, Managing Director of AB Vista gave an interesting speech:–

‘If I can just take a few minutes of your time, and welcome along to our reception. This is actually the third cocktail event we’ve had at [IPPE in] Atlanta. The first one a couple of years ago was for the launch of QuantumBlue Phytase which was quite a big event in AB Vista’s history. It has been a monumental two years since we launched that product and I think I’ll be fairly safe in saying that it’s really changed the way in which people think about phytase. It’s been a massive success for us, it has grown our business very rapidly – it’s kept me in a job which is quite useful as well but what I would really like to say is thank you a lot to everybody in the room here – we have a lot of customers here, a lot of distributors here, people we do research with here, and you guys have trusted us and we work really well together and being a huge part of this development. Just to finish, we have grown quite rapidly at AB Vista, the company has only really been trading properly as AB Vista for seven or eight years. We had one employee seven or eight years ago which was me, and we now have about 135. We have grown to be the number three player in the feed enzyme world. We are not satisfied with that position, we are still gaining on the ones above us and we are doing that but the only way we are going to do that in the future is by working with people like you guys in the room. We have got to deliver better products, better services and better internal investment for everybody that is buying feed enzymes. And on that note, I just want to wish everybody a happy and prosperous 2014.’

 

Please do see all AB Vista have to offer at stand 2239 in Hall A3.

The 2013 International Production & Processing Expo is over for another year. Officialy the last post of the event was yesterday but we wanted to surprise you with another one summing up this important event and also on how the many copies of The International Milling Directory that were taken to the show to be distributed to leading companies and organisation, and about the banner on the Perendale stand extolling the benefits of the IMD in its main digital form. This form is in IMD 24/7 on the PPLAPP (access the IMD web app by clicking on the first icon in the top-left hand corner called

‘Directory’). The app is completely free, just use your touchscreen device and save it as an app to your  device’s menu.

Overall, official press releases from IPPE today describe that it exceeded its expectations with more than 25,000 poultry, meat and feed industry leader attendees from all over the world. In addition, the show had 1,189 exhibitors with more than 430,000 net square feet of exhibit space. Final numbers will be released after the registration database has been audited for duplications. Sponsored by U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, American Feed Industry Association, and the American Meat Institute, IPPE is the world’s largest annual poultry, meat, and feed industry event of its kind.

“We are extremely pleased with the number of exhibitors and attendees on the exhibit floor for IPPE. We have had a great turn-out this year, and the energy and excitement on the floor has been apparent all week,” remarked the three trade associations.

The central attraction was the large exhibit floor. Exhibitors presented the latest innovations in equipment, supplies, and services utilised by industry firms in the production and processing of poultry, eggs, feed products, and meat. Many companies use the annual event to highlight their new products. All phases of the poultry, feed, and meat industry were represented, from live production and process events at IPPE.

Dr Mian Riaz of Texas A&M University, a contributor to both International Aquafeed and Grain &Feed Milling Technology, visited our stand on day two to meet with Roger Gilberting to further processing and packaging.

An expanded education program complemented the exhibits by keeping industry management informed on the latest issues. This year’s educational line-up featured 15 associated conferences at the event, ranging from an antibiotic conference on current issues for the poultry and egg industry to an international feed education program to international regulatory topics for meat.

The College Student Career Program attracted more than 400 students from 26 universities throughout the United States, while the new International Student Career Program brought in 13 students from four countries. The graduating students interviewed for jobs and internships with 93 human resource representatives from 28 industry and allied firms. They were also able to visit the exhibit floor to see the most current technology used in today’s poultry industry.

Other featured events included a Tech XChange programme, the International Poultry Scientific Forum, Meat Me in @LANTA activities, publisher-sponsored conference programmes, and the Pet Food Conference, all of which made the 2013 IPPE the premiere annual feed and protein event of the western hemisphere.

The International Milling Directory now looks ahead to the next relevant event, GEAPS Exchange 2013 which coincidentally is also in the US. It will take place from Sunday 24th to Tuesday 26th February.
