- Sponsored by Southern Cotton Ginners Association and Foundation and Delta Farm Press, the show annually attracts thousands.
The Mid-South Farm and Gin Show annually attracts top agricultural exhibitors, experts and growers from across the region, but not just the Delta region. The show offers a lot for the entire South.
“We always welcome our Southeast friends, and we are proud to draw many each year to the show in Memphis. Vendors, farmers and agribusiness leaders from across the Southeast come to the show,” said Tim Price, the show’s executive vice president.
Jason Barksdale grows cotton, peanuts and vegetables in southwest Georgia. He attended the gin show for the first time in 2022.
“I’ve always heard how great the show is but on the way there I was thinking there can’t be that much to an indoor show. I still can’t believe it. Tractors, combines, sprayers, tenders, tillage equipment, seed, crop protection all inside one comfortable building,” Barksdale said. “To top it all off Memphis is a great host city with really good restaurants, plenty of hotels and lots of stuff to see and do while you’re there. I will be back and have already recommended the show to others.”
Sponsored by Southern Cotton Ginners Association and Foundation and Delta Farm Press, the show annually attracts thousands of national and global decision-makers, Price said.
Price said the show is designed to incorporate a mixture of exhibits and education, providing attendees one place to see the latest technology and innovation, as well as learn about emerging issues and marketing techniques.
He offered a few reasons to attend the show for the first time or to return to the show each year:
Leading Ag Updates
Ag Launch Startups
Grain marketing workshops
More than 400 exhibits, and 50 new companies
Equipment and Technology seen only at this show
Thousands in cash prizes

“The show is also about connections and making new connections. It’s about the people who come to speak and come to see and learn. You’d be surprised who you might run into,” Price said.
Pre-register for the show and win chance to win $1,000 in the Feb. 10 drawing.
