The Indiana Farm Equipment and Technology Expo has announced the official dates for the 2019 show. The 41st annual indoor farm show will take place at the Indiana State Fairgrounds from December 17 – 19, 2019. “This is a week later than last year, but these are the only dates available at the fairgrounds,” said Gary Thoe, show Co-President. Hoosier Beef Congress is the weekend of Dec. 6 / 8 in 2019, so they will be in the West Pavilion, Expo Hall, and South Pavilion. They are always the first week/weekend after Thanksgiving, and Thanksgiving in 2019 is Nov. 28.
The Expo experienced an increase in attendance and exhibitor numbers in 2018, reversing a several year decline. Show organizers expect to see this trend continue into 2019. “We will continue to make improvements in the show to make it an exciting and positive experience for both attendees and exhibitors,” said Gary Truitt, Co-President.
Many of the best features of last year’s show will return in 2019, including the coffee shop and a free lunch on the third day of the show. In addition, some new and exciting features are planned. “Along with a more focused media marketing campaign and expanded social media offerings, we have set a goal of doubling attendance in 2019,” said Truitt. An improved layout of the show floor will also enhance exhibitor interactions with the farmers who attend.
