Commodity Classic and Ag Connect launch collaboration
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers, the National Corn Growers Association and the American Soybean Association announced a new collaborative venture that joins two leading industry trade show experiences - Commodity Classic and Ag Connect Expo & Summit - to provide an even better world-class experience and gathering place for all segments of agriculture.
Commodity Classic is a joint venture owned by the National Corn Growers Association and the American Soybean Association, with National Association of Wheat Growers and National Sorghum Producers participating as affiliates. The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM) owns and produces Ag Connect Expo & Summit.
The inaugural event will be held March 3-5, 2016, in New Orleans. The Commodity Classic shows scheduled for 2014 and 2015 will take place as planned. The Ag Connect experience will join Commodity Classic 2016 and the new combined show will continue to meet on an annual basis.
Charlie O’Brien, AEM senior vice president, said, “We have great respect for the professional approach the Commodity Classic has brought to the industry and feel it is consistent with the vision AEM members have designed into the Ag Connect experience. Great things can happen in the industry when leaders work together, have a long-term vision and stay focused.”
“Commodity Classic and the Ag Connect experience are two outstanding events for our audiences,” said NCGA President Martin Barbre, an Illinois corn grower. “We recognize how our programs can complement and extend the value for our members, exhibitors and attendees.”
"We both value the power of education and of top-quality interaction among attendees and exhibitors on the show floor,” said ASA President Danny Murphy, a soybean grower in Mississippi. “Commodity Classic will remain a farmer-led and farmer-focused event as it moves forward with our new partner. The timing is now right, and our new event will deliver even more value to all show participants.”
The two shows are known as offering valuable education sessions, innovations exhibited on the show floor, and unparalleled peer-to-peer networking - these values will not be merely maintained by the collaboration, but will be better than ever. More details will be provided in the coming months.
