World Pork Expo 2020 Is Cancelled

The World Pork Expo alongside other international conferences in the pig world scheduled to hold within the first half of 2020 have been cancelled.

Due to the ravaging Corona virus pandemic, the anticipated World Pork Expo scheduled to hold at Des Moines, IA, United States this June has been cancelled. This will be the second time that the event will be cancelled.

The World Pork Expo organised by the National Pork Producer Council (NPPC) was first cancelled in 2019 over the fears of African SwineFever being brought to the US.

According to Howard Roth, the NPPC’s president, the cancellation was necessary following the unanimous agreement of the NPPC’s board of directors to allow pork producers concentrate on pork supplies and eliminate the risk concerning the Corona virus pandemic. The event is now planned to take place in Des Moines, 9-11 June come 2021.

In a related case, the European Pig Producers congress which was expected to come up in the Netherland on 9-11 June has now been postponed till 2021.  A specific date will be communicated at a later time.

Prior to this, various pig congresses and events such as Victam 2020, London Swine Conference,  12th European Symposium of Porcine Health Management, the British Pig & Poultry Fair and International Pig Veterinary Society  Congress  were either cancelled or postponed, following the uncertainty surrounding the COVID-19.
