Two New Exhibits at International Production & Processing Expo

10 October 2013

US - Attendees of the upcoming 2014 International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will have a unique opportunity to explore two new interactive exhibits.

The Smithsonian’s Animal Connections: Our Journey Together mobile exhibit and the Drive to Feed Chew on This mobile exhibit will be on the show floor in Hall B at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta throughout the show from 28 to 30 January 2014.

The Smithsonian’s Animal Connections: Our Journey Together mobile exhibit was created to mark the 150th anniversary of the American Veterinary Medical Association and will introduce IPPE attendees to the complex bond between humans and animals.

The exhibit uses a dynamic combination of  interactive learning stations, films and touch screen videos, and three-dimensional settings to explore topics about animals in the home, on the farm, in the wild, at the zoo and in the veterinary clinic.

The Drive to Feed Chew on This mobile exhibit was created to heighten awareness about one of the biggest problems facing our world today - hunger. The exhibit is making a stop at the IPPE, and attendees can walk through the unique, interactive exhibit to view information on hunger, sustainability and food facts.

The two exhibits will join the famous Oscar Mayer Wienermobile as some of the unique features for attendees on the show floor.

IPPE is expected to attract more than 26,000 attendees and is a collaboration of three shows - International Poultry Expo, International Feed Expo and International Meat Expo - representing the entire chain of protein production and processing. The event is sponsored by US Poultry & Egg Association (USPoultry), the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) and the American Meat Institute (AMI).
