“THE EXPOSITION” UPDATE
To CPS Breeders: There no doubt has been many phone calls and communication exchanges in anticipation of a possible NPPC cancellation of the 2019 World Pork Expo. We understand fully the decision made by their Executive body to cancel this event with potential over sea travelers. They like ourselves respect the livelihood of all pork producers. We are excited that we were able to schedule “The Exposition” at the same facility (Iowa State Fairgrounds) on the same date (June 4th-8th) to enable breeding stock exhibitors and junior exhibitors the opportunity to showcase their hard work. Please respect the reason why we conduct these events and be vigilant about bio-security, respectful of other exhibitors and staff, and make “The Exposition” a pleasant experience.
The CPS group has secured a different hotel as our Des Moines Headquarters. I have secured the Sleep Inn & Suites in Pleasant Hill for our stay. This excellent property is located at 5580 Morning Star Court in Pleasant Hill. Direction from the Iowa State Fairgrounds is straight East on University Avenue past Highway 65-79 and on the South side of University Avenue. Actual distance from Motel to Fairgrounds is 3.6 miles. We have 20 rooms reserved under the following block “CPS Swine” starting Monday June 3rd and checking our Friday June 7th, cut-off date is Friday, May 10th.
Phone number for reservation is (515) 299-9922. Complimentary Breakfast is included in this extremely nice, comfortable, clean motel with rate of $149.99/night. This saves a driving, easy traffic, and is easy to maneuver in and out of fairgrounds. The motel is in a quiet, clean neighborhood. Please reserve early before all rooms are secured.
Travel safe and looking forward to an exciting week in Des Moines at “The Exposition”.
