Join the Missouri Pork Association for the 2024 Missouri Pork Expo, to be held February 20, 2024 at the Margaritaville Lake Resort in Osage Beach, Missouri. The Expo, which is the largest pork-specific event in the state, is marketed to all known Missouri pork producers and others in the pork industry. Missouri ranks 7th nationally in pork production—producers attending the Expo represent over 80% of Missouri’s production. Several companies also have meetings in conjunction with the Expo, bringing in more contract producers.

The exhibition fee for each 8’ x 10’ booth space is $645 if the contract is returned by November 3, 2023. After that date, the cost is $695. You can also place an advertisement in the annual Missouri Pork Today Magazine at 40% off normal rates. See the exhibitor contract for details.
Booth location is on a first-come first-served basis. Please review the floor layout and indicate your top three choices on the exhibitor contract, as well as the companies you do not wish to be close to. We will make every attempt to meet your request but cannot guarantee you will receive one of your three choices.
If you exhibited in 2023, we are giving you the opportunity to reserve the booth space you had at the 2023 Expo. Simply return the contract to MPA by October 20, 2023. If you would like to change your space, please review the floor layout, and indicate your top three choices. After October 20, unreserved booth spaces will be released to all exhibitors. Past exhibitors wishing to change their previous space will be given first consideration at this time.
We also encourage you to consider sponsoring the Expo. Please review the sponsorship levels and indicate your preferred level on the contract, or call me for a customized package.
We also encourage you to donate to the Pork Industry Fundraising Auction - donations can be indicated on the exhibitor contract.
I look forward to seeing you at the 2024 Missouri Pork Expo. If you have any questions, please call Diane Slater at (573) 445-8375, or e-mail [email protected].
