22nd World Meat Congress

Join experts from around the globe for the only event devoted to issues affecting meat and livestock production, consumption and trade.


Hosted by the International Meat Secretariat and U.S. Meat Export Federation, the 2018 World Meat Congress (WMC) will be held in Dallas, Texas, from May 30 to June 1. This is the world’s premier gathering of beef, pork, lamb and veal industry leaders—including producers, exporters, marketing specialists, policy analysts, economists and meat scientists—coming together to exchange ideas and experiences on key issues affecting the international meat and livestock sector, as well as global trade.

Participants and speakers bring an unparalleled range of perspectives from all regions of the world. Whether your interests lie in meat production technologies, new product development, trade negotiations, sustainability, animal care, nutrition or consumer trends, the WMC delivers the latest insights. Networking opportunities and post-meeting tours with peers and leaders in your field will further enhance the unmatched educational programming.

Dallas, a hub of business, innovation, ranching and culture, is the ideal location for the WMC’s return to the U.S. for the first time in more than 20 years. Downtown, you will discover an eclectic range of food, art and entertainment options. While it’s a big metropolis built on big ideas, you will still find plenty of small-town hospitality and charm.
