What organizers say is the largest indoor agricultural equipment show in the upper Midwest - and the fourth largest in the United States - kicks off Tuesday and continues through Thursday at Hy-Vee Exhibit Hall, Wells Fargo Arena and Veterans Auditorium in Des Moines. The 2012 Iowa Power Farming Show features 302,000 square feet of indoor exhibit space and includes participation by well over 600 companies from 26 states and four Canadian provinces. There are expected to be more than 1,800 booths - up from 1,690 in 2011.
Attendance is expected to approach 20,000. The vast majority of those who attend each year are farm operators. And they're not just from Iowa. The show is becoming known throughout the Midwest and people travel from throughout the region to participate in this enormous event.
It's expected that the total value of equipment on display could approach $25 million. This 57th incarnation of the Iowa Power Farming show just might turn out to be the grandest ever. There will be many new exhibitors among the hundreds of companies showcasing products.
