Expo chairman cites growth in second year

DANIEL LOOKER 01/09/2011 @ 1:09pm Business Editor

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.
