Don't Miss the Magic at 2019 PISC


Don’t Miss the Magic at 2019 PISC

The American Feed Industry Association is gearing up

for another great Purchasing and Ingredient Suppliers

Conference (PISC). The 2019 PISC will be held May 14-16 in Orlando, Fla. PISC is moving to May for 2019 only and will be back to its normal March dates in 2020.

The one-of-a-kind event attracts more than 600 feed ingredient buyers and sellers and is truly “where business gets done!” PISC offers industry experts the chance to exchange ideas and learn about issues affecting the industry.

This year's program will include member favorites such as the golf and sporting clays tournaments and the suppliers showcase. Conference attendees will hear presentations on myriad topics, including: the current trade and political landscape, revolutions in supply-chain management, the industry’s efforts on managing the African swine fever crisis and other foreign animal diseases, an economic outlook for the industry, and more.

As an added bonus, attendees will have the option to purchase discounted tickets to Walt Disney World for registrants and their family members to visit the parks May 10-18. Visit AFIA’s event website to learn more.
