For many farmers, trade shows are more than just a break from the day to day activities, it is how they stay up to date on new technology and products. Many companies take this time to reach their audience face-to-face. After being virtual this year because of COVID-19, the Commodity Classic trade show is expected to be back in-person for 2022, held in New Orleans on March 10 to 12.
The Commodity Classic trade show floor opens to new 2022 exhibitors at 10 a.m. Central on May 10.
“Even though the 2022 floor space is nearly sold out, this is a great opportunity for companies who want to exhibit to reach agriculture’s most forward-thinking producers,” said NCGA member and corn and soybean producer Gary Porter, Commodity Classic 2022 co-chair.
On May 10, the exhibitor application and contract will be published to the Commodity Classic website. Companies that wish to exhibit in 2022 should complete these documents as soon as they are posted to secure any remaining booth locations or to get on the waitlist in the event floor space opens up due to cancellations or changes.

The last in-person trade show, in San Antonio in 2020, drew the largest number of farmers (4,669) in the show’s history. The last time Commodity Classic was held in New Orleans, in 2016, was the largest show ever attended by both farmers and other agribusiness professionals. The Commodity Classic Special Edition digital event, held in 2021, also attracted a large number of first-time attendees.
Established in 1996, Commodity Classic is America’s largest farmer-led, farmer-focused agricultural and educational experience. It is presented annually by the American Soybean Association, National Corn Growers Association, National Association of Wheat Growers, National Sorghum Producers, and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers.
