An increased demand for space at the Farm Progress Show has created a need to expand the exhibit field by adding an extra street. The Farm Progress Show is scheduled for August 28, 29 and 30 in Boone, Iowa.
“When the Farm Progress Show site was built in Boone, it was built to accommodate the largest show usage in recent times,” says Matt Jungmann, National events manager. “As assignments for space were completed this spring, it became clear that extra space was needed to accommodate all the requests by exhibitors and the investment would need to be made to accommodate those requests.”
The Farm Progress Show grounds have grown from twelve streets to thirteen. That increase equates to 3.68 million square feet of exhibit space or close to 85 acres.
Not only is the Farm Progress Show growing, Husker Harvest Days is experiencing growth as well. The show grounds in Grand Island were expanded both of the last two years and this year the show is once again sold out of outdoor exhibit space with a waiting list. The expansions at Husker Harvest Days increased the grounds by 6.5 acres. Total exhibit space used is now 3.44 million square feet or close to 80 acres.
Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days are known as the events for product introductions and new campaign launches. These world class events continue to attract producers from across the United States and around the world. There are no better venues for seeing the latest equipment, products and technology in the agriculture world.
Advanced ticket sales for both the Farm Progress Show and Husker Harvest Days are now available on their websites.
