25/20/13: Event: Biosecurity Program scheduled at IPPE 2014

Taking place from 28 - 30 January 2014 at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta, USA, IPPE is the world's largest annual poultry, feed and meat industry event. 

Next years installment will see the introduction of a new Program, Biosecurity – Revisiting the Basics and Implementing New Strategies which is scheduled from 8am - 12pm on the last day of the event.

The need for effective biosecurity programs stems from the outbreaks of the H7N9 virus in China and the H7N3 virus on Mexico. 

Sponsored by US Poultry & Egg Association, the Biosecurity – Revisiting the Basics and Implementing New Strategies half-day program will revisit the well-established basics of successful biosecurity plans and explore new strategies for today's global challenges. 

The half-day program registration fee is US$100 for all International Production & Processing Expo attendees. The program will feature industry specialists, a panel discussion and a Practical Biosecurity Workshop. 

Discussions:
 - Dr David Shapiro, Perdue, will discuss Real-World Biosecurity Strategies to Minimize or Eliminate Animal Health and Food Safety Risks. 

- Carl Heeder, Zoetis, will present on Biosecurity Implementation Management: A Real Life Perspective of the Challenges Even the Most Well Written, Comprehensive Programs Face

There will also be a panel discussion which will address biosecurity perspectives from different regions of the world.

An accompanying  workshop will look at various scenarios from different countries and aim to develop a model taking into consideration different regions, cultures, etc.
