The inaugural Nebraska Ag Expo, formerly Nebraska Power Farming Show, was held at the Lancaster Event Center in Lincoln, Nebraska in 2007. At that time, only 300 companies occupied 655 spaces in two buildings. Today, the show has tripled in size with nearly 760 exhibitors spanning 9.2 acres, making the Nebraska Ag Expo the second largest indoor farm show in the United States.
Produced by the Iowa-Nebraska Equipment Dealers Association (INEDA), the Nebraska Ag Expo is modeled after INEDA’s successful Iowa Ag Expo, formerly Iowa Power Farming Show, now in its 932rd year. Both pure ag shows feature the best ag has to offer, including big iron, precision ag, aerial imaging, livestock production, inputs, data management and more.
The timing and location of the Nebraska Ag Expo is ideal. Held in December, it appeals to producers and exhibitors alike, with farmers and ranchers taking advantage of year-end buying specials and exhibitors looking to sell. Conveniently located on the eastern edge of Lincoln, the show also offers easy access without the traffic and parking hassles typically found at urban shows.
With more expansion plans in the works at the Lancaster Event Center, the future of the Nebraska Power Farming Show looks brighter than ever. Now that’s a great farm show!
