Throughout its 35 year history, The Sunbelt Ag Expo has been at the forefront of showcasing the future of agriculture.
From the first four and six row cotton picker demonstrations and self propelled peanut combines to the introduction of the cotton industry’s first commercially available picker equipped with a built-in on board module builder, to breakthrough research on new crop varieties, the Sunbelt Expo has always been the place for visitors to see the newest in agriculture.
The event attracts upwards of 100,000 visitors from all over the country. Visitors come for three days to peruse 4,000 product lines from 1200 commercial exhibitors, and capitalize on educational opportunities from university and college research specialists.
The Expo’s unique site has a 100-acre exhibit area adjoining a 600-acre working research farm. In the exhibit area, which includes both outdoor and indoor exhibits visitors will find every imaginable product or service a farm could ever need. In addition to the static exhibits visitors can attend educational, entertaining seminars and demonstrations offered in a variety of specialized areas. Visitors can ride take a tram from the exhibit area to the fields where cotton, peanuts, corn, soybeans, and hay are being harvested. These harvesting demonstrations, as well as tillage demonstrations, equipment driving ranges, irrigation technology and precision ag demonstrations all provide opportunities to see and compare a wide range of equipment in an actual working setting. Company representatives and specialists are in the fields to answer visitor questions.
The Sunbelt Expo has established itself as a must-attend event for anyone in agriculture. Static exhibits, a working farm, equipment demos, driving ranges and educational opportunities combine to make Expo the most comprehensive farm show in the Southeastern United States. Over 1200 companies exhibit in this one-stop agricultural marketplace each year and 75% of these companies are repeat exhibitors.
