For Immediate Release: London, Ontario, Friday, December 9, 2022. The long-standing tradition of the poultry industry gathering each year at the National Poultry Show (NPS) has stood the test of time despite three years of cancellations – first due to Covid, and then due to Avian Influenza affecting poultry events in Ontario. As one of North America’s premier poultry trade shows, the NPS brings together the best in the poultry industry with the latest in poultry technology, innovations, and education. It is a must-attend event for the whole industry.
Now, producers are welcomed back to the first event in three years, at the Western Fair District Agriplex on Wednesday, February 8th and Thursday, February 9th, 2023.
“We are excited to see this event return in person after three years of cancellations and changes. We are excited to announce that we have 160+ exhibitors returning for this year’s event, and 15+ new products and services being debuted at the show,” said show manager Bridget Mahon, Western Fair Association.
The show is a partnership between the Poultry Industry Council (PIC) and the Western Fair Association (WFA) with PIC receiving a portion of the revenues from the event. Funds go towards helping PIC create new resources, programs, and educational sessions for the entire poultry sector. PIC will also be debuting their Farm Emergency Planning Resource – be sure to stop by their booth to learn more!
“The PIC and WFA team are more than ready to see this show be a complete success and we have been feeling that high level of support from the industry as well,” says Ashley Honsberger, Executive Director of PIC. “We really look forward to seeing everyone at the show this February.”
The full showcasing of new Equipment and products, the PIC Education Stage schedule, luncheon tickets and more will be announced in January.
Thank you to Burnbrae Farms, Chicken Farmers of Ontario, and O&T Farms for your continued sponsorship support of the show.
