United Pork Americas is an international conference and tradeshow Farm Journal acquired in 2021 from Flavia Roppa of Brazil. For the past two decades, more than 150,000 international swine producers, veterinarians and industry stakeholders have experienced the event Roppa established — Pork Expo Brazil. An extension of Pork Expo Brazil, the United Pork Americas conference, is set for April 19-21, 2022, at the Hyatt Regency in Orlando, Fla.

The mission of United Pork Americas is to produce a global event to identify and present the challenges and opportunities within pork production and protein availability to produce the highest quality, efficacious and abundant food source for the world. It will create an environment to connect, network and celebrate the people, products and success of pork production across the globe. United Pork Americas will unite global pork stakeholders to better understand the opportunities and concerns of pork production from every corner of the world.

For more than two decades, the Pork Expo Brazil has attracted international attendees from Latin America, Central America, North America, Asia and Europe. The success of Pork Expo Brazil combined with Farm Journal’s 150-plus-year history in agriculture, events and education will together produce the world’s leading pork extravaganza. 

The United Pork Americas conference will feature an educational component with more than 50 internationally renowned speakers and sessions to provide educational opportunities for swine producers, veterinarians and industry stakeholders. It also will feature more than 28,000 square feet of Expo space, where domestic and international swine companies will have booths in an expansive trade show format to bring applicable information and resources to every facet of the pork production system.
