With more than 1,700 exhibitors and 100,000 attendees from 67 countries all on 2.6 million square feet of showgrounds, World Ag Expo is the largest ag expo of its kind worldwide. During this year’s show February 12-14, the grounds will expand again with the addition of the Dairy Technology Center (DTC) and surrounding outdoor dairy exhibit space.
The 2008 Expo will also introduce attendee electronic registration. Due to exhibitor requests, Expo leadership will work with a leading electronic registration company to register show attendees before they enter the grounds. Attendees will provide general demographic and production information and receive a printed badge for Expo entrance. The registration system will also enter attendees into a drawing for a 2008 Dodge truck and will act as admission to the West Coast Nationals Power Pulling Series.
To get a jump-start on business and browsing, the Expo will open at 8 a.m. in 2008. Attendees are welcome to begin roaming the grounds at 8 a.m. every day of the show. With acres of new innovations and technology, visitors will need the extra hour to see everything exhibitors have to offer. PD
