ABOUT THE SHOW
The National Farm Machinery Show offers the most complete selection of cutting-edge agricultural products, equipment and services available in the farming industry.
Business professionals from around the world gain knowledge and hands-on access to various technological advancements needed for the upcoming farming season during the four-day show.
The agricultural industry has continued to evolve. Rural family farms marked the landscape before big business boomed. Americans, who once relied on subsistence farming, shifted to large-scale, industrialized, vertically integrated "agribusiness."
Yet through the boom and bust, the traditions and the new conventions, the National Farm Machinery Show has found a niche that satisfies the changing needs of developing farmers.
Two shows shaped the beginnings of the National Farm Machinery Show. In 1963, the University of Kentucky sponsored an electricity demonstration and exhibit for farmers in Lexington.
That initial show opened the door, eventually expanding to include more types of power including agricultural power.
In addition, the most prominent and popular commercial exhibitors during the first forty years of the Kentucky State Fair were related to the farming industry. Power equipment valued at half a million dollars at the Farm Implement Show took up more than thirty acres of the fairgrounds.
Due to its popularity and the growing agricultural interests in the region, many knew the time was ripe to expand.
Louisville’s location in the agriculturally-rich Midwest and Southern corridor was accessible and attractive to farm equipment manufacturers and dealers from around the nation.
The exhibitors found an organized show in a central location where they could display their agriculture products, services, and equipment to an interested audience of professional and recreational farmers. The once-tiny farm show is now the nation’s largest indoor ag trade show and plans to host over 300,000 attendees and exhibitors.
The National Farm Machinery Show covers eight interconnected exhibit halls totaling more than 1.2 million square feet of indoor exhibit space and contains more than 890 agricultural displays. In four days, you can explore the latest farm trends, technology and tools offered by the industry’s best and most trusted brands.
You will see virtually every major line of farming equipment under one roof. Attendees can take advantage of in-depth product comparisons, as well as discover innovative technology, new product launches, alternative energy and solutions to the challenges facing today’s agribusiness professionals.
The National Farm Machinery Show and Championship Tractor Pull are ideal platforms to market your product and extend your brand to a national and international audience in the agribusiness industry.
