Expo chairman cites growth in second year

Martin Richenhagen, CEO of ACGO and chairman of this
year’s Ag Connect Expo in Atlanta said Sunday that the machinery and technology
show’s second year drew more farmers.

Registration for the show this year was about 12,000,
including members of the American Farm Bureau Federation, which is holding its
annual meeting at the same location starting this weekend, he said. Last year’s
attendance at the first Expo in Orlando, Florida was 7,700, he said.

From now on, the Expo will be held every other year. The
next one will take place in Orlando, Florida in 2013, Richenhagen said.

Locations after that will be determined by the Expo’s
organizers.

“I personally believe maybe the show should have a home
somewhere” with a permanent location, he said.
