IDEAg® Trade Show at AFBF Annual Convention

The AFBF IDEAg Trade Show is the hub of connection opportunities at the AFBF Annual Convention. Use this opportunity to showcase your newest technology, network and build industry connections, host farmers for engaging conversations, and communicate what farmers and ranchers can expect to discover through your brand and outreach in 2018.

About the AFBF:

The American Farm Bureau Federation is the nation’s largest general farm organization. More than 6.1 million American families are members of Farm Bureau in all 50 states and Puerto Rico. Each January, thousands of those members get together to conduct the business of the national organization, benefit from informative sessions on agricultural and rural issues and share camaraderie with their fellow farmers and ranchers. At the annual meeting of Farm Bureau voting delegates, our leaders set the national organization’s policies for the next year. These policies—surfaced and debated from the grassroots level on up—guide our national policy implementation efforts throughout the following year.
