12th Annual IPPE Young Leaders Under 30 Award Sponsorship Package

NEW! $10,000 – One Exclusive Opportunity


The American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), the North American Meat Institute (NAMI) and U.S. Poultry & Egg Association (USPOULTRY) developed the Young Leaders Under 30 Award to recognize professional leadership qualities and provide exposure to the world's largest annual trade show involving the production and processing of meat, poultry and egg products or in the production of animal food and pet food products.


The goal of the award is to engage and invest in the next generation of young professionals, between the ages of 21 and 29, while celebrating their status as up and coming leaders in their companies. Young professionals who work for companies directly involved in the production and processing of poultry and meat or in the production of animal food and whose company is a member of AFIA, NAMI or USPOULTRY are eligible to apply. The award comes with education for further training in each person’s respective industry and exposes the recipients to the latest technology used in the industry.


This award is highly regarded by member companies’ management, many of whom accompany the various Young Leaders as they attend their activities. Position your company front and center with the next generation of leadership as well as their managers to not only highlight your product and services but also show your support of the meat, poultry and animal food industries.
