First order of business at World Pork Expo this morning was a press conference featuring National Pork Producers Council president Bryan Black from Ohio.
Bryan discussed the 20th anniversary of the event, changes made this year to use badges instead of passes for attendees, the state of the US pork industry, exports and more.
Afterwards, Bryan visited with me in the Novus hospitality tent to do a condensed version interview of all the press conference topics. He says the expo gives pork producers and industry partners around the world one single meeting place to get the latest in technology and information. They have over 400 exhibitors this year and are expecting somewhere between 30-40,000 in attendance.
