Iowa Power Farming Show starts Tuesday

By Staff | Jan 28, 2010

What organizers say is the largest indoor agricultural equipment show in the upper Midwest – and the fourth largest in the United States – kicks off Tuesday and continues through Thursday at Hy-Vee Exhibit Hall, Wells Fargo Arena and Veterans Auditorium in Des Moines. The 2010 Iowa Power Farming Show features nearly 6 acres of indoor exhibit space and includes participation by 620 companies. There are expected to be more than 1,600 booths. The response to this year’s show has been so great that there was actually a wait list for booth space.

In 2009, the show had a record attendance of more than 18,300. The vast majority of those who attend each year are farm operators. And they’re not just from Iowa.

“Attendance has been steadily increasing as more farmers are becoming aware of how large the show is,” Tom Junge, show director, said in a statement previewing the show. “Each year we see more farmers from surrounding states, particularly Minnesota and Missouri.”

It’s expected that the total value of equipment on display could approach $25 million. This 55th incarnation of the Iowa Power Farming show just might turn out to be the grandest ever. There will be 44 new exhibitors among the hundreds of companies showcasing products.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be part of this exceptionally important event.
