The National Corn Growers Association, the American Soybean Association and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers announce that AEM will continue their participation in Commodity Classic, now as a partner and member of the event’s new management committee. This farmer-driven partnership will provide a strong basis for further growth while providing new, innovative ideas for Commodity Classic to provide an even better world-class experience and gathering place for all segments of agriculture.
The inaugural event under this new partnership will be held February 28-March 2, 2019, in Orlando, Fla.
Curt Blades, AEM senior vice president, said, “Over the past three years, we have been incredibly impressed as we grew our involvement in Commodity Classic, and our association takes great pride in the role that we play and experiences we bring to the table. Great things can happen in the industry when leaders work together, have a long-term vision and stay focused.”
“Commodity Classic has continued to grow over the years, and we look forward to even greater growth over the years to come,” said NCGA President Lynn Chrisp, a Nebraska corn grower. “We feel strongly that this relationship maintains the strength of our show, which continues to be produced by farmers and for farmers. At the same time, it will also leverage AEM’s many years of experience and expertise in producing top quality trade shows.”
