America's largest farmer-led, farmer-focused agricultural & educational experience!

Sponsor Education




Outstanding education is a hallmark of Commodity Classic. Farmers consistently report that one of their top reasons for attending Commodity Classic is to learn about issues impacting the agricultural industry. Commodity Classic strives to address attendees’ requests by offering a broad variety of up-to-date topics through various educational formats.


The three primary categories of educational formats are: Learning Center Sessions, What’s New Sessions and Mini What’s New Sessions. The details of these educational sponsorship opportunities are outlined in the Educational Opportunities Overview document.


All 2019 exhibiting companies are invited to submit proposals to sponsor one or more educational sessions. Sponsors of the educational sessions must be current exhibitors in the trade show. The Commodity Classic Farmer Committee reviews and approves all educational session proposals based on appeal to the Commodity Classic target audience. All sponsorship contributions will be applied to Commodity Classic sponsor levels.
