Poultry Expo 2020 stands cancelled due to Covid Pandemic

Organisers announce new 2021 dates for the 14th edition

Hyderabad, June 22, 2020: Indian Poultry Equipment Manufacturers’ Association (IPEMA) and Poultry India have announced cancellation of the internationally acclaimed 14th Poultry Expo and Knowledge Day 2020 in Hyderabad due to the Covid 19 pandemic.

South Asia’s biggest poultry event which attracts nearly 350 major global companies and nearly 35,000 visitors and delegates was to be held on Nov 24-27 2020.

It will now be held on November 23 to 26, 2021, at the same venue HITEX Exhibition Centre, Izzat Nagar, Hyderabad.

This is the first time this major global event stands cancelled ever since the inaugural event held in 2007.

Taking into consideration social distancing norms, financial losses by every member of the poultry fraternity -- losses that began to mount even before the national lockdown in March -- and briefly analysing the time frame it will take the sector to get back on even keel, the organisers have taken the decision to cancel the 2020 event.

“It truly breaks our heart to cancel this year’s event. This is the first time such a decision has been taken in the interest of all farmers, equipment manufacturers, animal health companies, feed mills and poultry professionals, exhibition visitors, Knowledge Day delegates,” said Mr P. Chakradhar Rao, President of IPEMA( Indian Poultry Equipment Manufacturers Assn.). “We promise you the 14th edition next year will be bigger, better”

India’s poultry industry has borne the brunt of the national lockdown and affected the poultry farming community, animal health producers, feed mills and equipment manufacturers. To add to this woe erroneous misconception on consuming poultry products during the initial stages of the pandemic also put paid to movement, distribution and consuming of poultry products.
