Industry Meetings and Events

Due to the cancellation of World Dairy Expo 2020, the status of industry events such as meetings, banquets and reunions typically held during Expo will be determined by each host organization. This page will be updated as we approach World Dairy Expo 2021.

Expo attendees can benefit from a variety of international conferences, special seminars, industry meetings and fun programming. These events offer an opportunity to meet and talk with fellow producers from down the road or around the globe and are free, unless noted otherwise. For additional information on these events, please contact the hosting company.

The following will be held at WDE 2019. This is a continuously updating list, so check back for new opportunities!
