IPF show opens Tuesday

By Staff | Jan 28, 2011

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 Polk County Convention Complex in Des Moines.

The 2011 Iowa Power Farming Show features 260,000 square feet of indoor exhibit space and includes participation by well over 600 companies from 23 states and five Canadian provinces. There are expected to be even more than the 1,629 booths that highlighted the event in 2010.

In 2010, the show had a record attendance of 19,081. The vast majority of those who attend each year are farm operators. And they’re not just from Iowa. The show is becoming known throughout the Midwest and people travel from throughout the region to participate in this enormous event.

It’s expected that the total value of equipment on display could approach $25 million. This 56th incarnation of the Iowa Power Farming show just might turn out to be the grandest ever. There will be many new exhibitors among the hundreds of companies showcasing products.

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