The 2016 National Farm Machinery Show, slated to take place between February 10 and February 13 in Louisville, Ky., will have more than 850 exhibitors occupying 1.2 million square feet of space at the Kentucky Exposition Center.
The event, which has been hosted for more than 50 years, continues to be one of the largest indoor farm shows in the country, showcasing the latest farm equipment to attendees. The event is also typically the site of many innovative technology displays, which educate attendees on everything from alternative energy to new agribusiness solutions.
John Deere will be one of the many exhibitors at the 2016 show. This year, visitors can find the company at booths 6427, 6627, 7054, 7056, 7058 and 7060.
A number of seminars will also be hosted throughout the duration of the show, headlined by the Association of Equipment Manufacturers’ (AEM) “Ag Executive Outlook.” “This is an opportunity to gain insights directly from the leadership of some of the major manufacturers gathered on the same stage, as they share their experiences and thoughts on what’s next in agriculture and how that will affect agribusiness and life on the farm,” said Charlie O’Brien, AEM senior vice president.
Some of the other topics that will be discussed include “Powering Agriculture with Renewable Energy,” “Market and Weather Strategies 2016,” and “In-Season Fertility.”
The event will take place each day between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Admission to the event is free, although there will be a fee of $8.00 for those who are parking at the show. More information can be found on the National Farm and Machinery Show website.
