The Association of Equipment Manufacturers will continue their participation in Commodity Classic, now as a partner and member of the event’s new management committee.
The inaugural event under this new partnership will be held February 28-March 2, 2019, in Orlando, Fla.
“Over the past three years, we have been incredibly impressed as we grew our involvement in Commodity Classic, and our association takes great pride in the role that we play and experiences we bring to the table,” said Curt Blades, AEM senior vice president.
“Commodity Classic has continued to grow over the years, and we look forward to even greater growth over the years to come,” said National Corn Growers Association President Lynn Chrisp, a Nebraska corn grower. “We feel strongly that this relationship maintains the strength of our show, which continues to be produced by farmers and for farmers. At the same time, it will also leverage AEM’s many years of experience and expertise in producing top quality trade shows.”
“We all value the power of education and of top-quality interaction among attendees and exhibitors on the show floor,” said American Soybean Association President Davie Stephens, a soybean grower from Kentucky. “Commodity Classic’s farmer focus remains its greatest strength. Agriculture, as an industry, is truly interconnected. By working together, we increase our collective strength and grow our opportunities for success.”
Commodity Classic is the annual convention and trade show for the American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association, Association of Equipment Manufacturers, National Association of Wheat Growers, and National Sorghum Producers. Visit www.commodityclassic.com.
