AG CONNECT Expo And Commodity Classic Being Combined

The AG CONNECT Expo and Commodity Classic trade show are being combined. 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.
