MPF to Present Virtual Trade Show & Convention in August


As anticipated the Midwest Poultry Federation (MPF) has announced that the 2020 in-person convention, re-scheduled for July has been cancelled. As an alternative the MPF will offer a virtual trade show and conference on-line on August 12th and 13th 2020.


The leadership team met several times last week to weigh options and the full board unanimously endorsed the decision made to protect exhibitors, staff and attendees.


President of the MFP, Greg Nelson stated “given the current COVID-19 situation and the unknowns surrounding large gatherings, we cancelled the in-person convention” He added  “the 2020 Virtual MPF Convention gives us a full trade show and convention component online – the next best thing to being together in person.” 



The virtual platform will showcase the arranged MPF education content. Connections between exhibitors and attendees will be achieved through a robust, 3-D graphical experience in which attendees will visit company booths in the Exhibit Hall, benefit from education sessions and interact with speakers.


Attendees who were pre-registered to attend the March Convention will be automatically registered to attend the virtual MPF event at no additional cost. Ticket purchases for the MPF Unhatched Concert event and A Slice of Learning lunch will be refunded. Details for on-line registration will be forthcoming at
Information on participation in the virtual trade show is available from the Exhibits Manager, Teresa Sorenson at


Current sponsors and their brands will be incorporated directly onto the virtual platform at no additional fee. If your company is not a current sponsor and would like to participate, contact Lara Durben at
