Ag Expo brings the world to California
Tulare, Calif. — The largest annual agricultural exposition of its kind will return this month to California.
The World Ag Expo will present its 51st edition starting Feb. 13, boasting more than 1,500 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge agricultural technology and equipment on 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space.
Last year, 105,780 people from 43 states and 71 countries visited the 50th anniversary of World Ag Expo.
The World Ag Expo Arena will again offer daily Equipment Showcases, where exhibitors will perform live demonstrations of their latest products.
Seminars will be offered in a variety of categories, including dairy, irrigation, international trade, business and farm management, marketing and media and general agriculture.
These seminars are presented by professionals in the industry and provide attendees with valuable information to improve their operations.
“World Ag Expo has built a legacy of bringing agricultural buyers and sellers together,” Jerry Sinift, International Agri-Center’s chief executive officer, said in a press release.
The Top-10 New Products Competition, sponsored by Bank of America, is back with products offering new technology and increased efficiencies.
From unmanned spray systems and remote monitoring to new tire traction solutions and ag film recycling, the Top-10 New Products has something to offer every type of farming operation.
The 2018 World Ag Expo will also host daily events, including the Wednesday evening Bud Light After-Hours Party in the Arena, with a free concert by Craig Campbell.
Attendees can look forward to several new events this year, including a livestock seminar and demonstration on Wednesday afternoon in the Arena, a woodworking demonstration, the Italian Trade Agency pavilion and a wide variety of new seminars that cover everything from organic farming to new technology in the ag industry.
Attendees will also be able to take advantage of 20 new acres of parking to the south side of the International Agri-Center grounds. This addition will allow for easier parking and greater attendance.
World Ag Expo attendees can get the latest news, information and updates about the show by downloading the new 2018 mobile app. The free app provides mobile access to the schedule of events, an exhibitor directory, map of the show grounds and other visitor resources.
The app is available for download from the app store by searching “World Ag Expo 2018.”
“World Ag Expo is here to facilitate the connections between the exhibitors who provide the most advanced technology and equipment and the farmers who continue to evaluate and improve their operations,” Sinift said.
