The World Pork Expo returns for its 34th year to the Iowa State Fairgrounds in Des Moines, June 8-10. Presented by the National Pork Producers Council, World Pork Expo is expected to draw thousands of producers and industry professionals for three days of networking, education, innovation — and free pork, too.

"We're delighted to welcome everyone back to World Pork Expo," said NPPC President Jen Sorenson, and communications director for Iowa Select Farms in West Des Moines, Iowa. "This year's Expo has an exceptional lineup of programming, including educational seminars and luncheons. It's absolutely the industry's must-attend event."

Registration information will soon be available online for those who plan to attend the 2022 World Pork Expo.

The World Pork Expo venue gives attendees the opportunity to explore more than 360,000 square feet of exhibition space. In prior years, more than 700 vendor booths representing companies from North America and around the world have presented and displayed products in the trade show space. There will also be a number of companies with hospitality tents for networking and business opportunities. 

"We continue to be the world's largest pork-specific trade show," said Doug Fricke, Expo director of trade show marketing for NPPC. "If you're part of the pork industry, you're part of the World Pork Expo."

In 2021, World Pork Expo returned after a two-year pause due to African swine fever concerns in 2019, and then the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020. Last year's event drew a crowd of more than 10,000 producers and pork industry professionals.
