18/04/2017: Super Bowl coming to Atlanta prompts shift in 2019 IPPE show dates

The Super Bowl is coming to Atlanta in 2019

As a result, the show dates for the International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) will be moved to February 12 – 14, 2019.

IPPE will continue to be held at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta, Ga., and all IPPE contracted hotels will still be available as normal.

“We realise the change in dates is unusual. Many resources are tied up by the NFL in the host city of the Super Bowl, which resulted in the move from our traditional show dates of the fourth week of January. With the Super Bowl scheduled for Sunday, February 3, we worked with the city of Atlanta to find the best possible dates to host the 2019 IPPE without disruption of services normally provided during the week of the trade show.”

“We are continuing to stay with our Tuesday through Thursday format for the exhibitor floor, with industry meetings and educational programs scheduled Monday through Friday. IPPE has turned into a week-long event, and we appreciate the support that all industries provide in sending attendees to our annual trade show,” said IPPE show organisers.

The 2018 IPPE will be held January 30 – February 1, 2018, at the Georgia World Congress Centre in Atlanta. Future IPPE show dates beyond 2019 are reserved for the traditional last week in January.
