Plans for the 54th World Dairy Expo, set for Sept. 28 through Oct. 2, continue to progress at the Alliant Energy Center in Madison, Wis. Expo recognizes that uncertainty remains surrounding health regulations that may govern Madison at the time of WDE 2021.

To best understand these factors as the COVID-19 pandemic persists, Expo has met with Dane County and Alliant Energy Center officials regarding current and potential local COVID-19 restrictions. Communication continues as additional clarity is sought.

Because of World Dairy Expo’s role as the gathering place of an essential global industry, the organization’s leadership is also exploring other potential venues for the 2021 show. Proposals were sought throughout February. At this time, Expo officials are not at liberty to disclose which venues are being considered. A decision regarding the location of World Dairy Expo 2021 will be made by the WDE Executive Committee later this spring after all options and implications are thoroughly reviewed.

World Dairy Expo leaders remain steadfast in their commitment to gathering the global dairy industry again on the colored shavings, on the Trade Show floor, and in The Tanbark this fall at World Dairy Expo 2021. For the latest Expo news, follow WDE on social media and visit worlddairyexpo.com.
