Registration can be completed online at or by using the form in the November issue of the Iowa Pork Producer magazine. Attendees are encouraged to register in advance.

IPPA members and non-members can save money when they pre-register. IPPA members who pre-register receive free admission. The cost to non-members is just $5 when they register in advance. Registration at the door will be $10. The deadline for online registration is Jan. 11, 2008. Mail-in registrations will be accepted until Jan. 8, 2008.

By pre-registering for Pork Congress, the attendee's name badge will be pre-printed and waiting for them at the pre-registration desk when they arrive. As an added bonus, those pre-registering will be entered in drawings for prizes, including Iowa State University men's basketball tickets, hotel stays and more.

The nation's largest winter trade show will feature some 300 swine-related companies, many valuable seminars and educational events, networking opportunities, youth activities and social events.
