PORK CONGRESS: Registration Open | Events
If you didn’t get your hands on any Blue Ribbon Bacon Festival tickets, don’t fear!
The nation’s largest winter swine tradeshow and conference, the 2013 Iowa Pork Congress, will be held on January 23rd and 24th.
It will take place at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and hosted by the Iowa Pork Producers Association (IPPA).
The Iowa Pork Foundation’s annual Kickoff Reception and Auction will be held at Hy-Vee Hall on Jan. 22 and the IPPA Youth Swine Judging Contest will be held in the Pioneer Livestock Pavilion at the Iowa State Fairgrounds on Jan. 24.
“Pork Congress encompasses every aspect of the pork industry and I encourage anyone involved in pork production to make plans to attend,” said IPPA President Bill Tentinger, a producer from Le Mars. “The tradeshow, seminars, social functions, youth activities and networking opportunities always attract thousands of people from around the Midwest and we’re hoping for another great turnout this year.”
Nearly 300 companies will exhibit with seminars also planned.
Registration is currently open for the 2013 Iowa Pork Congress. The pre-registration deadline is January, 10th 2013.
