The International Poultry Expo is the primary source of funding for the U.S. Poultry & Egg Association, the world's largest and most active poultry organization. It represents the entire industry as an "All Feather" association. Membership includes producers and processors of broilers, turkeys, ducks, eggs, and breeding stock, as well as allied companies. : Every segment of the poultry industry is represented: live production, hatchery, processing, further processing, packaging, commercial egg, marketing, and all support activities. The feed expo attracts manufactures, ingredient suppliers, animal health companies, equipment manufacturers, large integrated livestock and poultry producers and firms that provide other goods and services to the commercial animal food industry.
There were 895 exhibitors at the 2012 expo. The shows encompassed two exhibit halls: one hall housed suppliers who deal with processing, further processing, packaging, and marketing poultry meat products; the other hall housed exhibitors who focus on feed manufacturing, egg production and processing, poultry breeding and incubation, poultry health and poultry housing. Attendance totaled over 20,651 visitors. International attendees numbered 4,142, with Latin America constituting the largest segment at 45% of non-US attendees.
This show strongly aligns with the goals of the ITA NEI Agricultural Equipment Strategy
