2021 IL Pork Expo
2021 IL Pork In-Person Expo Canceled
In light of our state’s current in-person meeting restrictions due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Illinois Pork Producers Association (IPPA) has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2021 Illinois Pork Expo. IPPA will be hosting a virtual annual meeting to conduct delegate business. Thank you for your understanding as we continue to navigate through these unprecedented times. We sincerely hope we can return to an in-person event in 2022.
Producer Video Series
In lieu of the in-person event, IPPA will be hosting a four-week producer focused video series during the month of February. We are accepting suggestions for topics.
Expo Catalog: Chop Talk Special Edition
In place of a tradeshow, IPPA will be developing an exclusive, 2021 Expo Catalog: Chop Talk Special Edition, that will be distributed to over 1,100 mailboxes across Illinois in late January. IPPA is offering a unique opportunity to still get brands in front of our producers. Advertisements can be purchased to highlight a company, new products, or any timely information you would like to share with our audience.
If you are interested, please fill out the form and return to Eileen Urish by December 1, 2020. We will need artwork by December 31st. For questions email Eileen Urish firstname.lastname@example.org.
