ST. LOUIS, Mo. — With a trade show featuring more than 400 exhibitors commanding more than 2,200 booth spaces, Commodity Classic attendees are strongly encouraged to wear comfortable shoes!
The 2017 Commodity Classic, the nation’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused convention and trade show, will be held March 2-4, 2017, in San Antonio, Tex.
“Agribusiness companies know that Commodity Classic attracts the nation’s best farmers, so they bring their best equipment, technology, innovations and people,” said Kevin Ross, an Iowa farmer and co-chair of the 2017 Commodity Classic. “That means you can engage in deep conversations with representatives of the companies you do business with, get answers to your questions and provide input to them on their products and services.”
While many of the world’s leading agribusiness companies are on site, so are scores of other smaller exhibitors offering a wide range of technology, equipment and innovation. “We really encourage farmers to visit the smaller booths on the trade show floor,” Ross said. “Many times that’s where you’ll discover the emerging technologies and out-of-the-box ideas that could be just what you’re looking for to help you address challenges in your operation.”
Admission to the trade show is included with the registration fee.
The trade show is just one of the many reasons to attend Commodity Classic. In addition to the General Session, Commodity Classic offers a wide range of educational sessions including Learning Centers, What’s New Sessions, Mini What’s New Sessions, Early Riser Sessions and the AG CONNECT Main Stage on the trade show floor. Commodity Classic also includes entertainment and the opportunity to network with thousands of America’s best farmers.
Detailed information on all educational sessions and the entire Commodity Classic schedule are available at www.commodityclassic.com. Online registration and housing are also available on the website.
Established in 1996, Commodity Classic is produced by the National Corn Growers Association, American Soybean Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Sorghum Producers, and Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
