The third largest indoor U.S. farm show, presented by Farm Credit Services of America and AgDirect, will be held January 30-February 1 at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines, Iowa. Spread across 7.7 acres, the Iowa Power Farming Show is loaded with big iron, precision ag, aerial imaging, livestock production, inputs, data management and more.
The Iowa Power Farming Show is known for attracting companies you won’t see at other nearby farm shows. “More than half of our exhibitors do not participate in the nearest bi-annual outdoor farm show and nearly 70% do not participate in the nearest indoor farm show,” said Tom Junge, show director. “This may be your only chance to see them in Iowa!”
This year, the show is adding an entire floor of new exhibits. “We continually get requests from companies wanting to exhibit at our show,” said Junge. “However, with an average 90% exhibitor retention rate, very few new companies get the opportunity to participate. This expansion will provide space for 75 additional booths, a lunch buffet and seating.”
Only companies promoting ag-related products and services are allowed to exhibit, which means you won’t find hot tubs or windows at the Iowa Power Farming Show. Multiple educational seminars will also be offered each day, giving farmers several opportunities to learn about climate trends, how to make better financial decisions, planting cover crops and more.
Show hours are 9 am to 4 pm Tuesday and Wednesday, and 9 am to 3 pm Thursday. Parking and shuttle are FREE at Iowa Cubs-Principal Park. Farmers may register online at iowapowershow.com to save $5 off the $8 admission.
