Apr 15

The 2020 Poultry Symposium for Production & Processing scheduled to take place on April 15-16, 2020 at the John Q Hammons Convention Center and Embassy Suites in Rogers, Arkansas has been cancelled.

After careful deliberation, The Poultry Federation has decided to reschedule the Poultry Symposium for Production & Processing to a later date.

The 2020 Poultry Science Department Scholarship Golf Tournament at the Stonebridge Meadows Golf Club has also been cancelled.

The conference, scheduled to occur April 15-16, 2020 would have brought together several hundred attendees, along with featured speakers from the entire United States. With the spread of COVID-19 cases and the warnings of additional cases, along with recommendations to avoid large meetings, The Poultry Federation Executive Committee and the Poultry Symposium for Production & Processing Planning Committee has determined that proceeding with the event as scheduled would undermine efforts to mitigate the spread of COVID-19. 

We do not take this decision lightly and seriously regret the inconvenience to our conference participants and attendees. The rapidly evolving public health situation is changing on a daily basis and we want do our part in preventing the potential spread of this virus.  

We are currently working with the Embassy Suites to find a date to reschedule the conference. We will notify registered attendees as soon as we have determined that date. Those who wish to remain registered for the rescheduled event will not need to take further action. 

If you have booked a hotel room you will need to cancel your reservation.

Attendees who would like a refund of their registration fee should send an email to Joyce Wood at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
