Welcome Poultry Industry Producers!

2020 MPF Convention Status – CANCELLED for March 17-19 (possible postponement to summer dates TBD)

3/12/2020 Update- The Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) Board of Directors has made the decision that the MPF Convention will not be held next week. The MPF Board will explore potential options for postponing this show to dates later this summer.

All events and meetings associated with the MPF Convention, March 16-19, are cancelled. The North Central Avian Disease Conference, the Organic Egg Symposium, and the Purina Animal Nutrition Symposium are all cancelled as well.

At this point, you do not need to cancel your registration since we are exploring options for postponement to later dates. We ask for your patience as MPF works through all the parameters in the coming weeks and will provide updates on how this process will play out with regards to postponement and any possible refunds and/or credits toward a future show. (We just don’t have all the answers yet but promise to keep you in the loop.)

If you have a hotel reservation within MPF’s blocks at the Hilton, Hyatt, Millennium or Best Western Normandy, your hotel room will be cancelled automatically and a cancellation email will be sent to the email on file for you.

If you have a hotel reservation outside MPF’s blocks, you are responsible for cancelling your own hotel room.

EXHIBITORS:  Contact GES regarding your orders – 1-800-801-7648. Please be patient if you aren’t able to get through right away as they are navigating cancellations of several shows. MPF will not consider issuing any booth refunds until a decision on the postponement of the show is made. Seniority and priority points for the convention will NOT be affected.

While we are disappointed that we won’t see you next week in Minneapolis, we know this decision is in the best interests of our attendees, exhibitors, and our organization. We will be in touch as soon as we have more information.

Visit the hotel page for hotel phone numbers if you need to cancel a hotel room.
