No need to travel far to see the latest farm equipment, high-tech electronics, and precision agriculture when the Iowa Ag Expo brings the biggest names and newest innovations to Des Moines each winter.
The Iowa Ag Expo – the 3rd largest indoor ag show in the United States – annually hosts nearly 700 exhibitors spanning 7.7 acres, 3 buildings, and 7 floors across the Iowa Events Center. These ag manufacturers and suppliers come from across the country and around the world to display the best ag has to offer, from big iron, precision ag, aerial imaging, and livestock production, to inputs, data management, and more.
Farmers across the Midwest attend this pure ag expo to kick some tires, see the latest innovations, and compare products side-by-side. Free seminars led by industry experts throughout the show are popular as well, covering topics like UAVs, estate planning, water quality, and weather and commodity trends.
Iowa Ag Expo hours are 9 am to 4 pm Tuesday and Wednesday, and 9 am to 3 pm Thursday. Parking and shuttle are free at Iowa Cubs-Principal Park. Admission is $10 with a $5 discount available at iowaagexpo.com.
