Friday, October 18, 2019

Tulare, CA –The 2017 World Ag Expo came to a close on February 16, 2017, with large crowds, cutting-edge exhibits and a little bit of rain.

The three day show hosted 105,780 attendees representing 43 states and 71 countries.

“World Ag Expo has been a platform for the best and brightest in the ag industry for 50 years now.

Attendees came from all over the world to learn about the newest ag equipment, services and technology. Educational seminars were held all three days and covered a variety of topics for virtually every type of agriculture operation. 

“After nearly five decades of dedicated focus on the newest equipment and solutions for advancing the agriculture industry, World Ag Expo continues to set the standard for agriculture expos,” said Jeff Sorbrero, Sales Manager for RDO Equipment Co.

Other popular attractions at 2017 World Ag Expo included the Ride & Drive areas, Taste of California, and the daily Equipment Showcase. In celebration of the 50th anniversary, more than 6,000 people attended the Bud Light After-Hours Party, featuring Parmalee and a fireworks show. A little rain was no hindrance to the 50 Year Tractor Parade on Thursday morning, as attendees gathered to see the farm equipment on display.
