Sold-out National Farm Machinery Show brings over 800 exhibitors and $24.2m in Estimated Economic Impact to the Commonwealth 

From tractor cabs to cutting-edge labs, agriculture isn't confined to fields—it's a realm where innovation thrives. Agriculture is an ever-changing industry, so trade shows like the National Farm Machinery Show are more critical than ever. Year after year, the show welcomes hundreds of thousands looking to propel agriculture into the future. 

As Kentucky Venues prepares 1.2 million square feet of indoor space for over 800 exhibitors at the Kentucky Exposition Center in Louisville, Kentucky, exhibitors are preparing their product launches, in-depth demonstrations, and informative seminars. The 58th annual show happens February 14-17 and is expected to bring in over 300,000 visitors wanting to jumpstart their 2024 season with the most innovative agriculture technology. 

The free trade show will showcase a plethora of industry-leading experts and companies. Whether checking out the latest tractor equipment from brands like John Deere, Case IH, New Holland, Kubota, and more or attending free seminars on driverless technology, the farm show offers opportunities for farmers to expand their fleet and knowledge. 

After the excitement of the show floor closes, visitors can head to iconic Freedom Hall to witness the pulse-pounding shows of the Championship Tractor Pull sponsored by Farm Credit Mid-America. More than 190 talented drivers will compete in the nation's longest-running indoor tractor pull in front of 70,000 tractor-pull fans over five performances. For those who have never attended a tractor pull, it's an experience you will never forget - the engine's roar and the crowd's excitement as massive tractors barrel down the track. 

If shopping local and small is more your speed, visit the Gift & Craft Market in the South Wing, where vendors have an array of merchandise, including fashion, toys, collectibles, snacks, and more. The market is open daily from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. 

As always, we thank the farmers who work tirelessly to provide for the world. Your work can often be overlooked, but it is invaluable and essential. We believe this show is just the beginning of an incredibly successful year and we invite you to visit us soon. 

Best regards,
