Among the many important events that the Forigo team will not miss this February, there will be World AG Expo 2020, the largest annual exhibition dedicated to agriculture at a global level. Every year, many exhibitors and even more visitors take part to this important event: the history of the World AG Expo is long and its success it’s still growing. This new edition will take place from the 11th to the 13th of February, in the city of Tulare in California (USA). Discover in this article more details about the event!
World AG Expo is an event that began fifty years ago, in 1968. In that year, which went down in history as one of the most revolutionary of the last century, the exhibition was born with the name of "Tulare's Field and Row Crop Equipment Show” and took place in the Tulare County Fairgrounds. It did not take long for the fair to demonstrate its potential: the first edition saw the participation of 157 exhibitors and 28 thousand visitors. With the second edition, the numbers doubled and the name was changed to "California Farm Equipment Show".
In its early years, the event had maintained a national character, but its growing success led to internationalization in 1972, when the first foreign producers began to appear among the exhibitors. This led to a new change in the name, which became "California Farm Equipment Show and International Exposition". Only in 2001 the name become "World AG Expo", which remains today.
Following the constant growth that characterizes this great event, the 2019 edition recorded impressive data: 1.452 exhibitors and 102.878 visitors, coming from as many as 65 countries around the world. Such numbers make it clear how many opportunities can be found in an event like World AG Expo: the possibility of meeting between different realities allows exchanges and sharing of ideas, creates new alliances and contributes to the growth of business and of the whole agriculture sector.
World AG Expo 2020 will offer a complete program of events that will touch every aspect of the sector: it will range from machinery, tools and equipment to the latest technologies, from alternative energy to irrigation, from forage to dairy products, not to mention horticulture, viticulture and much more. The main attractions of this great show will be seminars and conferences, but also "Agriculture Tours", events dedicated to women in agriculture (called Women in AG) and a pavilion dedicated to local wines and cheeses and called "Wine & Cheese".
