March 4-6, 2021 - America's largest farmer-led, farmer-focused agricultural & educational experience!

Commodity Classic Trade Show

 

 

 

An exciting combination of iron, ideas and innovation.

The trade show at Commodity Classic is consistently one of the event’s top-rated experiences. And no wonder. It’s where the nation’s top ag companies and the nation’s top farmers get together to talk shop.
 

An early adopter’s paradise

You’ll get a firsthand, hands-on look at the latest technology, equipment and advancements—well before others read about them in the farm magazines.
 
Conversations with the top people

The world’s leading agribusiness companies bring their best people to Commodity Classic, so you can have deep discussions about what you need from them and what they can do for your farm.
 
Big ideas in the small booths

Be sure to browse among the smaller exhibitors. Just because they don’t have a big footprint on the trade show floor doesn’t mean they don’t have a groundbreaking idea that could be just the answer you’re looking for.
