Midwest Poultry Federation convention is coming!

In light of ongoing developments with COVID-19 and after thoughtful discussions with its Board of Directors, the Midwest Poultry Federation has made the decision to shift its 2021 MPF Convention to a fully online, virtual experience May 18-21.

 

“We were so hopeful that we might be able to bring attendees, exhibitors, and speakers together safely in-person in May but after careful consideration of all the factors, it became clear that this was the best decision we could make for everyone involved,” said MPF President Scott Waldner of Purina Animal Nutrition. Waldner represents the Chicken and Egg Association of Minnesota on the MPF Board.

The Board reviewed all the current, science-based information, looked at vaccination rates for the country, reviewed travel policies (both nationally and internationally), and collaborated closely with its vendor partners. In the end, an in-person show in May simply would not allow the kind of show experience MPF attendees and exhibitors have come to expect.

“The safety of our attendees is paramount and there are simply too many unknowns at this point, especially with the national and international nature of our meeting,” said Waldner.

In a typical year, MPF draws well over 3,000 attendees and exhibitors from across the U.S., nearly every province in Canada, and several other international countries.

“We believe this is the safest approach for the well-being of our global audience,” said Waldner. “COVID-19 has changed the way the world connects, and with one virtual convention already under its belt, MPF is excited to expand upon the engagement and connection opportunities available within its virtual platform.”
