The Association of Equipment Manufacturers is collaborating with the National Corn Growers Association and the American Soybean Association on the venture. ASA President Danny Murphy says this is a big step in the evolution of Commodity Classic as a leading technology and education provider for farmers.

Charlie O’Brien, AEM senior vice president says combining the shows will provide an even better world-class experience and gathering place for all segments of agriculture.

The inaugural event will be held March 3-5, 2016, in New Orleans and continue on an annual basis. The Commodity Classic shows scheduled for 2014 and 2015 will take place as planned.
