The National Farm Machinery Show is an ideal platform to market your product and extend your name to a national and international audience in the agribusiness industry.
The National Farm Machinery Show continues to thrive, growing each year and bringing farmers, dealers and manufacturers to the Kentucky Exposition Center.
As the agriculture industry changes, the National Farm Machinery Show remains on the forefront of agriculture innovations with all the workshops, equipment and technology
that farmers need to compete in the modern marketplace.
In 2014 the event hosted 294,360 attendees from across the world. Nearly 870 exhibitors filled all 1.2 million square feet of the Kentucky Exposition Center,
making the largest indoor farm show in the country even more comprehensive than ever before. The always-popular Championship Tractor Pull drew cheering crowds of more
than 66,000 fans for the four-day event.
As the third largest trade show in the Commonwealth of Kentucky, the National Farm Machinery Show generates more than $21.5 million of economic impact annually and
is one of the most popular public events at the Kentucky Exposition Center.
