The 2020 show theme, “Focusing on Ag,” was chosen to reinforce the expo’s purpose. The World Ag Expo is a chance for farmers, ranchers, and ag business people to come to the show and spend time seeing new technology, solutions for their operations, and develop new relationships.
The World Ag Expo is the largest annual outdoor ag tradeshow in the world. In 2019, the show saw 102,800 attendees from 48 states and 65 countries. With more than 1,400 exhibitors and 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space, World Ag Expo provides a platform for networking, education and business in one of the most productive ag counties in the United States. The annual show is organized by the International Agri-Center, a non-profit focused on agriculture education year-round.
