The International Agri-Center, home to the World Ag Expo in Tulare California, draws a crowd of over 100,000 from 65 countries that file through more than 1,400 exhibitors that display cutting-edge agricultural technology in February each year. After running for 52 years, the show will not be held in 2021 for the first time in its history.
Show organisers were working with the Tulare County Health Department and other officials, but it became evident that given health and safety restrictions from the State of California, holding a live international event did not meet current criteria.
The International Agri-Center Board of Director’s decision to cancel the 2021 World Ag Expo was not taken lightly and comes after months of research and evaluation of known event constraints. The decision has been made now to provide exhibitors, attendees, volunteers, contractors, and local businesses time to adjust their Tulare farm show plans. The 2022 World Ag Expo is scheduled for 8 to 10 February.
