International Agri-Center Prepares For 50th Anniversary of World Ag Expo

By Shaun Davis

World Ag Expo will celebrate its 50th anniversary show, February 14-16, 2017. The largest annual agricultural exposition of its kind, World Ag Expo boasts more than 1,500 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge agricultural technology and equipment on 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space. An estimated average of 100,000 individuals attend the show each year to learn about the latest advances in agriculture. At 2016 World Ag Expo, 47 U.S. States and 79 countries were represented.
2017 World Ag Expo will host daily 50th celebration events, including the Wednesday evening Bud Light After-Hours Party in the Arena, with a free concert by Parmalee and fireworks to commemorate the golden anniversary. The World Ag Expo Arena will once 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. Seminars presented by professionals in the industry provide attendees with valuable information to improve their operations. New this year, World Ag Expo will introduce Taste of California, giving attendees the opportunity to literally taste a wide variety of California agriculture products.

The Top-10 New Products Competition, sponsored by Bank of America, is back with products offering new technology and increased efficiencies. From dairy nutrition and irrigation technology, to crop cleaning and melon harvesting, the Top-10 New Products has something to offer every type of farming operation.
