IAFE - The International Association of Fairs and Expositions

Resources for Fairs Canceling Poultry Shows

Many fairs are faced with canceling poultry shows this summer due to the avian influenza (H5N2) outbreak impacting commercial poultry operations and backyard flocks across the U.S. The IAFE will provide information and resources for members for ideas on messaging, education, and use of space on this website and through the members’ Igniter forum. Click here to go to the special Avian Influenza Resource section (you will need to use your member e-mail and password). Check back frequently for updates as well as watch your e-mail for special announcements (from “news,” the Network Newsletter, or e-announcements).

Join the discussion to brainstorm ideas! Live CyberSeminars on June 4 at 2:00 p.m. and again at 6:00 p.m. (CDT) will give you the chance to share ideas about what to do when your poultry show is canceled. These sessions are FREE! Click here to register and get details.
