FRANCE - The International Egg Commission (IEC) is holding its first conference of 2010 in Paris on 11 to 13 April. The focus of this conference is 'The New Decade: 2010-2020'.

Leaders and key decision-makers from egg businesses around the world will meet to discuss the latest issues and developments taking place within the industry.

According to IEC chairman, Frank Pace, more than 280 of the egg industry's leading decision makers from Asia, America, Europe and Australia, are expected to meet in Paris in April.

Mr Pace said: "France is one of Europe's largest egg producing countries; it has over 44 million layers, producing over 900,000 tonnes of shell eggs and more than 200,000 tonnes of processed egg products every year. We are delighted to have been invited to hold our meeting in its capital city.

"Although we are still making the final preparations, we already expect more than 280 participants to join us in Paris. With over 50 representatives expected from leading egg processing and egg production facilities throughout France, this really is a unique opportunity for people within our industry to meet and forge contacts with some of the major egg companies within France."

IEC conferences provide an excellent balance of social networking, and informative industry speakers, carefully designed to help delegates to profit from a direct exchange of ideas with professional colleagues. Speakers scheduled to speak on Monday 12 and Tuesday 13 April include, Dr Bernard Vallat, the Director General of the OIE, and Feike Swennenhuis of Unilever.

The IEC Paris 2010 Conference is being held in the spectacular Hilton Arc de Triomphe Hotel.
