Event Details


Info to Know Before you Register! Please read this first.

IPPE –NPFDA Members who register BEFORE 12/31/2018, will get free passes to attend the International Production and Processing Exposition (IPPE –Once called IPE or Southeastern). Please make sure we receive individual email addresses for all attendees. Do not use one email for more than one person - you will only get one pass per email address. Registrant(s) will not receive the free passes if they use an email address that has already been used.
Passes will be emailed from US Poultry & Egg Association/IPPE, therefore, be sure to let everyone know to check their Inbox and Junk/Spam folders.

Non-Members sponsored by a Member – Sometimes our members want to pay for and bring a customer to the convention. We appreciate this gesture and will allow member companies to sponsor up to 5 people only. If a member chooses to list non-members on their room/registration list and not claim them as a sponsored guest, the guest will be listed on the attendee list and the name badges as an employee of the NPFDA member company.

Overflow rooms and limits at the Hyatt - The Hyatt has limited rooms available and will sell out quickly!

Member companies may book up to 25 (ONLY) rooms at the Hyatt. Should your company need more rooms than 25, we will need to place those additional people in one of our overflow hotels. Put people on the reservation form in order of importance to stay at the Hyatt. We suggest that you consider putting operations/grow-out employees at the overflow hotels so your salespeople can stay at the hotel with the NPFDA member buyers.
Hotels will fill in this order:

  1. Hyatt Regency Atlanta
  2. Hyatt Place Downtown
  3. Hampton Inn Downtown
  4. Crown Plaza Downtown/midtown area
  5. Homewood Suites

  1. Hyatt Regency: Single/Double: $203

Read This Before Registering

Click Here for the NPFDA Registration and Reservation Excel Form
The Hyatt has changed its system and we have to go back to the dark ages this year and type all room reservations into an Excel Sheet so everyone must fill out the Excel sheet to register and reserve rooms. The Good thing is with Excel, You can copy, drag and paste or just drag many cells since most of the information will be on the first row. Drag and copy is safer so the Excel form cannot add +1 to each record.

FOR THOSE WHO DO NOT UNDERSTAND EXCEL - USE this Smartsheet App to register and book your rooms. You will have to type in new copy for each person so although easy, it will take a bit longer. Smartsheet Individual Registration Form
