The biggest names in farming will soon invade Des Moines. The list of exhibitors showcasing farm equipment and services at the 2013 Iowa Power Farming Show includes major ag brands from every product category.
Top tractor manufacturers bringing big iron to Des Moines include: Case IH, Challenger, John Deere, Kubota, Massey, New Holland and Versatile. Joining them will be top innovators in Precision Ag, like Ag Leader, Hemisphere GPS, Micro-Trak, Raven Industries and Trimble. Also exhibiting are first-class crop protection companies like BASF Corp., Bayer CropScience, FMC Corp., Monsanto, Syngenta and Valent.
Show director Tom Junge said the show's ideal location and timing help attract the biggest names in farming.
"Having it early in the year makes it a great show for companies to introduce new products and refine messaging that will be used to market products and services throughout the year, including at other farm shows," Junge said. "But the biggest upside is in the location. Having it in Des Moines, smack dab in the middle of the heartland, means growers and ranchers can attend the show without having to make expensive travel plans outside the region."
The Iowa Power Farming Show, which is the third largest indoor farm show in the United States, runs from January 29-31, 2013, at the Iowa Events Center in Des Moines. For more information, or to access a complete list of exhibitors, please visit www.iowapowershow.com.
