World Ag Expo moves online for 2021
For the first time, the 2021 World Ag Expo will be an online event rather than the in-person trade show usually held in Tulare, California.
“A digital show is not a replacement for a live event like World Ag Expo,” says Jerry Sinift, International Agri-Center CEO. “But the ag industry has never stopped working, and neither will we. Ag is essential and so is our job as a trade show to bring buyers and sellers together. We’re just going to do it a little bit differently in 2021.”
Instead of limiting the event to the original show dates of February 9-11, the expo organizers have planned a unique yearlong approach.
“Each exhibitor has a microsite within the show to share information and hold live chats, along with many other options. These can be changed during the year. As organizers, we will have online seminars, the Top-10 New Products Contest, and more new content being released throughout the year,” explains Jennifer Fawkes, International Agri-Center marketing manager.
World Ag Expo Online will kick off February 9-11, 2021 – the original show dates. Live events and seminars will be scheduled for 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. PST each day, but content will be available on-demand at no charge to attendees around the clock. Seminars will be presented online by exhibitors, California State University – Fresno, Irrigation Association, Center for International Trade Development, and many more. The schedule will be finalized in January and will be available for attendees to begin planning their viewing schedule.
