Poultry Information Exchange (PIX) 2012

Welcome to another edition of eChook! In this edition we get an update from an industry internship recipient, look at odour research, examine expanding broiler growing opportunities and see young students take an interest in the poultry industry at this years “Science in the Bush”. First up, we’ll look to 2012’s Poultry Information Exchange being held in May on Queensland’s Gold Coast…

Planning is already well underway for the 2012 Poultry Information Exchange (PIX) conference, to be held from Sunday 20 to Wednesday 23 May 2012 at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre, Broadbeach, Queensland.

PIX organisers are excited to announce that they will be combining with the Australasian Milling Conference, bringing delegates from the stockfeed and flour milling industries together at the one event. “As a result, we anticipate that over 850 delegates will attend” said Mr Rod Jenner, President of PIX Association. “We will also be welcoming delegates from the nearby Asia Pacific Region, including New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, Asia and Fiji”.

PIX includes the industry’s largest, most extensive trade exhibition in Australia, an exciting social program and numerous workshops, including the highly successful full-day tunnel ventilation workshop for broiler growers.

The comprehensive, world-class lecture program by renowned international and local speakers includes two days of meat chicken, egg and general industry presentations as well as sessions for breeder, hatchery, meat processing and free-range and organic production systems.

The lecture program continues for two days, filled with the latest in innovation and information, with experts from both Australia and overseas. The program is streamed into chicken meat, egg production, free range and organic, feed milling, and processing, so there will be topics of interest for each and every delegate. Workshops on numerous special interest areas, including hatchery, breeders and tunnel ventilation will also be on offer. For the more technically-minded, the Australasian Veterinary Poultry Association will be holding a scientific meeting in conjunction with PIX. All are welcome to attend this event.

In 2012, the trade show will be bigger and better than ever before, with over 6300m2 of floor space 10 metres high, allowing over 100 exhibitors to demonstrate their latest products and equipment in comfort.

The trade show has come to be seen as a must-do event for suppliers to the poultry industry. Sponsorship of PIX is always welcome. With sponsorship, your business will receive regular exposure throughout the 4 days of the event and will ensure that you are recognised as a significant and enthusiastic supporter of our industry.

“It is also a chance to catch up with old friends and acquaintances, meet new ones, and enjoy the hospitality that the PIX conference and Queensland’s Gold Coast has to offer” said Rod. So lock in your calendar for the 20-23 May, 2012.
