For more than 52 years, World Ag Expo has served agriculture by bringing buyers and sellers together to innovate, collaborate, and advance agriculture. In 2021, the show will not be held live for the first time in World Ag Expo history.

“After working with the Tulare County Health Department and other officials, it has become evident that given health and safety restrictions from the state of California, holding a live, international event is not responsible in February,” said Jerry Sinift, International Agri-Center CEO.

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 future trends and known constraints. The decision was finalized earlier than the initial November deadline to provide exhibitors, attendees, volunteers, concessionaires, contractors, and local businesses time to adjust their Tulare farm show plans.

The cancellation of World Ag Expo comes as another negative effect of COVID-19 for the International Agri-Center, exhibitors, non-profit food vendors, attendees, area hotels, restaurants, and other associated businesses.

Attendees are encouraged to follow World Ag Expo social media channels and watch their email inboxes for more information on World Ag Expo projects throughout 2020 and 2021. They can join the World Ag Expo email list to stay up-to-date at http://bit.ly/WAEupdates.

World Ag Expo staff will reach out to exhibitors concerning fees and more options for 2021 starting Sept. 16.

The 2022 World Ag Expo is scheduled for Feb. 8 to 10 at the International Agri-Center in Tulare.

The International Agri-Center is home to World Ag Expo in Tulare, California. An estimated annual average of 100,000 individuals from 65 countries attend World Ag Expo each year. The largest annual agricultural show of its kind, World Ag Expo hosts more than 1,400 exhibitors displaying cutting-edge agricultural technology and equipment on 2.6 million square feet of exhibit space.
