KANSAS CITY, MO. — The forecast for hosting in-person events in 2021 is still murky, with most pet industry conferences, trade shows and meetings moving online at least through March.

For example, organizers of Global Pet Expo announced in mid-December that it will be held entirely online March 24 to 26. International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE) and its concurrent Pet Food Conference hosted by the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA) were moved online as well, to be hosted Jan. 26 to 28. Other organizations, such as the Food Processing Suppliers Association, are holding out hope to host in-person events later in the spring and fall.
