Pork Expo Mobile App Introduced

Pork Expo Mobile App Introduced

New mobile app allows easier navigation for expo-goers.

With nearly 400 exhibits at the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa, June 6-8, and half of today's mobile subscribers owning smartphones, the National Pork Producers Council  and National Hog Farmer have partnered to develop the World Pork Expo app for Apple, Android and Blackberry mobile devices.

More than 20,000 attendees are expected to visit the World Pork Expo in Des Moines, Iowa, June 6-8.

The World Pork Expo mobile app will provide up-to-date information and locations, including a complete list of the Expo's exhibitors and a map to navigate the show. The app will enable attendees to plan their day by selecting business seminars and special events to place on their personalized calendars. It also provides trade-show contacts and exhibitor descriptions, profiles of meeting activities, and a place for users to take notes.

The World Pork mobile app can be downloaded free of charge by searching "World Pork" in the Apple Store, Android Market and Blackberry's App World. Users also can download the app at

The app is sponsored by Pfizer Animal Health, Elanco Animal Health, Novartis Animal Health, Merck Animal Health and PIC.
