Registration is now open for international visitors planning to attend World Ag Expo next Feb. 8-10 in Tulare, Calif.
Jerry Sinift, chief executive officer of the International Agri-Center said more than 1,100 international visitors from 80 countries attended last year’s farm show.
Mexico, Canada and Iran were the most well represented countries. There were also more than 200 exhibitors from Canada and 17 exhibitors from Israel.
To register as an international guest, go online to worldagexpo.com for a list of questions which will be used to generate a Letter of Invitation. This letter will be automatically generated and emailed to the applicant. International guests can use the letter as compelling evidence for immigration officials to issue a passport.
At the Expo, an International Business Center is open each day on the second floor of the Heritage Complex. There, guests will find a variety of free services including matching U.S. companies with international buyers, export agreements, international distributors and interpreting services.
On Feb. 9, World Ag Expo will host an international reception in the Heritage Complex Banquet Hall. Invitations for this private event can be picked up in the International Business Center during the Expo.
