The world’s largest pork expo opened its doors today. The three-day event is expected to welcome over 20,000 visitors from 39 countries and showcase more than 400 exhibits.
“World Pork Expo always showcases the latest innovations and information, making it the place to be for pork-industry enthusiasts each June,” says Doug Fricke, director of trade show marketing, NPPC.
Celebrating its 25th anniversary, the expo will feature new attractions, including an International Visitors Centre, America’s Best Genetics exhibit and a special anniversary display. Expo attendees are also encouraged to vote for their favorite display and enter for a chance to win a trip worth $3,000 in value (visit booth 2708). The expo will also host a variety of educational seminars, breeding-stock shows and pork products, just to name a few.
