London poultry show cancelled

The National Poultry Show in London has been cancelled for the third year in a row, this time because of concerns that highly-pathogenic avian influenza could spread. 


The two previous cancellations were because of the COVID-19 pandemic.


“We are so very disappointed to cancel this event for the third year in a row, however the safety of the industry is paramount,” said Ashley Honsberger, executive director of the Poultry Industry Council.


“We appreciate the ongoing feedback and candor of our show exhibitors, customers and sponsors as we navigate the circumstance of waiting another year for the show once again.”
