What organizers say is the largest indoor agricultural equipment show in the upper Midwest - and the third largest in the United States - kicks off Tuesday and continues through Thursday at Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. The 2014 Iowa Power Farming Show features a quarter million square feet of indoor exhibit space and includes participation by well over 750 companies not only from across the United States, but also from several Canadian provinces. There are expected to be even more approximately 1,840 booths. Many new exhibitors will be among the companies showcasing products.
Attendance at the show is expected to exceed 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.
"The location in central Iowa means growers in the heartland can see the next big things in agriculture without incurring heavy travel expenses," said Show Director Tom Junge in a statement previewing the show. "And the timing early in the year means companies can introduce new innovations directly to their target customers in the Midwest."
The Iowa Power Farming Show is owned and managed by the Iowa-Nebraska Equipment Dealers Association, which represents over 400 agricultural and outdoor power equipment dealers throughout Iowa and Nebraska.
The 2014 incarnation of the Iowa Power Farming show just might turn out to be the grandest ever. Don't miss the opportunity to be part of this exceptionally important event. And while you are there be sure to pay a visit to the Farm News booth.
