US - The 2010 International Poultry/Feed Expo (IPE/IFE) will be in Halls A and B, in Atlanta's Georgia World Congress Center, moving out of Hall C.

The move was finalised at the recent Exhibitor Advisory Committee meeting in Atlanta. The Exhibitor Committee met to review the 2009 show and make recommendations for 2010. Sponsored by US Poultry & Egg Association and the American Feed Industry Association, next year's event is scheduled for 27 to 29 January.

"Using Halls A and B instead of B and C will make it more convenient for both exhibitors and attendees," explained committee chairman, Hugh Cholick of Novus International. "The configuration and logistics in A and B will provide enhancements for exhibitors, registration and meetings. And access from the hotel district will be much easier," he said.

"The '09 show was well received and the Exhibitor Committee was pleased," Mr Cholick continued. "Even though much of our industry has been in a downturn, attendance was good and spirits on the floor were high. Committee members are looking forward to improving economic conditions, and we are enthusiastic about the 2010 Expo."

"The committee reviewed all aspects of the Expo, including exhibit rules and policies, education programmes, registration and hotel procedures," added committee vice chairman, Fred Cespedes of American Proteins. "And although the show runs smoothly, our goal is to continue to improve and fine-tune it in any way we can," he said.


Exhibitor Committee members include (seated from left): Shannon Heath (Meyn America), Gwen Venable (Stork Food Systems), Henry Kuhl (Kuhl Corporation), Ann Pennino (Praxair Food Technologies), Hugh Cholick (Novus International), Mike Deal (AGRI-associates), Scott Anderson (California Pellet Mill Company) and Fred Cespedes (American Proteins) and (standing from left): Amanda Stumbo (Alltech, Inc.), Roger Rasor (International Paper), John Hawk (Lubing Systems), Pat Meggs (Cumberland) and Patrick Ceska (Morton, Vardeman and Carlson).
