Welcome to the 57th Annual Western Farm Show 2018!
We're happy to help you become an exhibitor for this event for farmers and ranchers.
The Western Farm Show is a non-direct selling show. Exhibitors whose normal method of distribution is through wholesalers and/or retail dealers are specifically forbidden to sell directly to attendees at the Show, thus by-passing the normal channels of distribution. The Western Equipment Dealers Association represents and is supported by retailers. We will not, under any circumstances, conduct and manage any project that removes the retailer from his traditional place in the chain of distribution.
The only area of the show that direct selling is allowed is in the Family Living Center. The Family Living Center is a special area of the Western Farm Show reserved for products or services with only an ancillary connection to agriculture. This is the only area of the Show where cash-and-carry sales may legally take place.
