Farm Progress will return to hosting live events with the Farm Progress Show in Decatur, IL, August 31-September 2, and Husker Harvest Days in Grand Island, NE, September 14-16.
A survey done by Readex Research indicated that 84% of past show attendees will go to the show in person or plan to attend if their schedule allows it. The industry hasn’t come together in person since early 2020, so groundbreaking product introductions and technological advances haven’t been seen in over 18 months. Farm Progress said its entire team is working to ensure that the agriculture community can reconnect in meaningful and safe ways when they return to these yearly events.
The All-Secure Guidelines, a transparent and vetted industry-wide collection of health and safety policies, will provide direction during the upcoming shows and make sure that all attendees and exhibitors will be safe and healthy. Central Illinois farmer Chase Brown tells Farm Progress that “It’s exciting to get out to see and touch the newest equipment, but also to interact with not only exhibitors but fellow farmers.”
