For the first time since our founding, the International Poultry Council will host its conference in the United States. The meeting will be in New Orleans, Louisiana, April 13-18 at the fabulous Ritz-Carlton hotel. One of the most-popular destination cities in the U.S., New Orleans is famed for its cuisine, its music and its nightlife.
We have negotiated a tremendous rate at the Ritz Carlton -- the top luxury hotel in New Orleans – at the tremendous rate of US$ 199.00 plus applicable taxes. Reservations can be made on the website (click here) or with the Ritz-Carlton Central Reservations at +1 800 826-8987 using group codes WGSWGSA (Deluxe King Accommodations - $199) or WGSWGSB (Deluxe Double Accommodations - $199). Please note that block dates are April 12-19 and if you plan to stay longer or arrive earlier, group rates will be subject to room availability, therefore we encourage you to book as soon as possible. Also note that the room block cut-off date is March 15, so in order to ensure your room at the group rate, please book it before the deadline to obtain that special rate. In fact, you may wish to book even earlier, because there’s a good possibility that due to the popularity of the area and the French Quarter Festival the week before (https://frenchquarterfest.org/), the availability of rooms may be limited.

And last, but not least, this will be Jim's last year as our Chairman, so you don't want to miss our President's Dinner on Wednesday (April 17). Make sure your travel arrangements contemplate this night in New Orleans.
