The 2023 World Pork Expo will return to the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, Iowa, from June 7-9. This year marks the 35th anniversary of the annual event focusing on education, innovation and networking within the pork industry.

“This is a big anniversary for the World Pork Expo,” National Pork Producers Council (NPPC) Board President Terry Wolters said. “We’re looking forward to celebrating the event’s history while continuing to look ahead at the progress the industry continues to make. With this year’s exceptional lineup of programming and educational seminars, this really is a must-attend event for the industry.”

World’s Largest Pork-Specific Trade Show

The World Pork Expo is the defining annual event for the pork industry and highlights the $57 billion and 610,000 jobs the industry contributes to the U.S. economy.

“There are more than 66,000 pork producers nationwide,” Wolters said. “The World Pork Expo showcases how committed NPPC is to everyone in the pork industry. At the same time, it’s a great way for industry professionals to connect and network with one another.”

The event has seen significant growth over the last three and a half decades to become the world’s largest pork-specific trade show. Last year, more than 10,000 pork producers and ag professionals representing over 400 companies worldwide participated. This year’s event is expected to draw even more industry insiders to the more than 300,000 square feet of exhibit space.
